Greg Fleming 'Strollin'' with new single
Greg Fleming's third single from the upcoming album Get Off at Lincoln is a short, sharp, jazzy tune about strollin' home through the city on a beautiful late summer day.
”Some days chicken salad/ Some days chicken shit/ some days you fall in love/ aint no stoppin' it"
Fleming says the song was almost left off the album but bass player Mark Hughes kept going on about it and then turned up at the studio one morning with his acoustic bass.
"I'm so glad he did, it's one of my faves on the record - and also has a line I've always wanted to work into a song - "I'm so tired of living on my phone" - cos aren't we all!"
Greg's first show was opening up for Texan legend Townes Van Zandt. Since then he's built up a reputation as a razor sharp songwriter - adept in a wide range of styles and settings. The Working Poor are one of Australasia's finest, forward-thinking bands. Their album To Hell With These Streets made the top 10 best albums of 2016 at elsewhere.co.nz - it followed the highly acclaimed Stranger In My Own Hometown and 2014's Forget the Past – which enjoyed 4 star reviews both at home and internationally. 2017's Working Poor Country was considered one of the year's overlooked gems by the Sunday Star Times. Greg was recently profiled at Audioculture
