Staff Picks – Greg

Hey, Amy here. Our colleague Greg has been working 80-90 hour weeks since the end of CXCW, and he has young kids and a wife and two cats and real responsibilities and shit. So, being the nice (and charming and intelligent and beautiful) person that I am, I told him I would write his summary for him. Greg told me that his favorite new artist of the year is Caleb Caudle. Who can blame him for picking Caleb? This song kicks ass.

Second, Greg is the only CXCW staffer I have met in the real world. We had a couple three beers when I was visiting New Orleans in 2011. I know Greg has been a huge fan of American Aquarium for years, so it’s no surprise that he selected BJ Barnham soloing on their new song “Wolves.”

To see what other artists and bands that captured Greg’s attention this year, click Greg’s Picks here or on the tag line. I spy Buffalo Gospel, Hallelujah the Hills, and many others.

Greg would like to close CXCW 2014 with these parting thoughts: “We’re so glad to see so many of you lovely people here tonight. And we would especially like to welcome all the representatives of Illinois’s law enforcement community that have chosen to join us here in the Palace Hotel Ballroom at this time. We certainly hope you all enjoy the show. And remember, people, that no matter who you are and what you do to live, thrive and survive, they’re still some things that makes us all the same. You. Me. Them. Everybody. Everybody.”
