Gregory Lynn Hall, Southern California solo artist and singer for 101 South has had a long history in the music industry, in all areas from studio work to live shows. Gregory started off his music career singing gospel songs on his grandmas piano bench with his 2 other cousins, doing harmonies when he was 3 years old. As an instrumentalist Gregory started playing drums and soon moved on to guitar, then bass and keyboards, producer, etc... --finding his nitch in the late 70s.

Gregory helped polish the band RAT SALLY in the early 80s and pounded the Hollywood scene playing at all the rock venues, from Gazzaris to the Troubadour, The Country Club-playing many gigs with Bands like Poison, Warrant, all the 80s rockers, hanging out with the typical Hollywood Rocker crowd. After the Seattle grunge sound came and changed the whole music scene, Gregory moved to the mid-west where he found many new opportunities in Nashville (the whole mid-west region). He became a well sought after session vocalist, singing on many well known Christian artist’s albums including CARMAN and one of the most sought after jingle, commercial vocalists in the mid-west, with many local and national Jingles under his belt.

In the late 90s the artists returned to California and found himself reuniting with RAT SALLY and going in the studio to record a new EP. Following that, a reunion gig at the world famous Pelicans retreated in 1995. Gregory kept busy doing session work for the next few years.

In 1999 while doing a session in Malibu, he met Roger Scott Craig and was asked to do some demos and 101 SOUTH was born. Shortly after the first 101 SOUTH album(2000) was finished Gregory was asked to join the band HEAVEN AND EARTH (Stuart Smith, Richie Onori, Kelly Keeling), as their bass player and toured with them to support the "Windows to the World" album, culminating with an All Star filled show for the orphans of 911 in Hollywood. Gregory has had the honor of performing on stage, and working with;

Keith Emerson(ELP), Gary Richrath (REO), Howard Leese (Heart), Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge), Spencer Davis, Steve Priest(Sweet), Craig Goldy (Guiffria, Dio, Budgie), Stuart Smith (Heaven and Earth, Sweet), Richie Onori (Rick Derringer, ELP, Heaven and Earth), Kelly Keeling (Blue Murder, Lynch Mob), Don Cromwell (Eddie Money, Air Supply) and many other world class musicians. Gregory has also had the pleasure of working in some of the best studios in the world, INDIGO RANCH, Malibu ca.-THE CHURCH STUDIO, Tulsa Ok. Gregory has also worked with Eddie Money in the studio and teamed up with Roger Scott Craig to make another 101 SOUTH album in 2002 called ROLL OF THE DICE that made many top 10 lists in Europe. In Oct. 2008 they finished recording their 3rd 101 SOUTH album with a couple world class guest musicians incl. Ian Bairnson (PILOT, Allan Parsons Project) and Chris Thompson (Manfred Mann, Blinded by the light).

Gregory has just finished recording a solo album entitled “Heaven To Earth” which comes along with a little harder edge than 101 South. The album was recorded in Las Vegas at “The Hall Closet Studio” and mastered by Mike Turner at “The Chicken Shack” in Chattsworth, California.

KHAØS is back!

After their critically acclaimed debut EP ‘Rising’ appeared in late 2012, KHAØS are now ready to release a brand new single entitled ‘After The Silence’.

‘After The Silence’ will be released on July 14th 2014 and is the first single from the forthcoming full-length album ‘Risen’. The single will be digitally available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and on all other digital platforms.

Recorded by Rolf Munkes at his Empire Studios in Germany and mastered by music legend and award winner for Adele’s ‘21’ Tom Coyne at Sterling Sound in New York; ‘After The Silence’ is the perfect song to introduce the very first KHAØS full-length album.

“’After The Silence’ is the anthemic track that kicks off the album. It’s about finding one’s self in a war-torn world and bonding together with like-minded people in order to start a peaceful revolution. We face a lot of difficulties throughout our daily lives and in a world where that seems to be the norm, sometimes the only thing we seem to have is ourselves and what we know.”

Alongside the single the band is going to release an official videoclip. Directed by the talented Swiss director Can Isik (Beauty of Gemina). The video was shot in a burnt down factory area in Arbon Switzerland and will premiere on Youtube on July 14th.

‘Risen’ Line-up: Chandler Mogel – vocals, Mark Rossi – guitars, N I c Angileri – bass, Trevor Franklin - drums

In einer seit 1969 unveränderten Originalbesetzung und mit weltweiten Verkäufen von mehr als 50 Millionen Tonträgern beglücken ZZ Top ihre Fans rund um den Globus weiterhin mit brillanten Konzerten und großartiger Musik. Im Laufe ihrer langen Karriere war die Band gleich mehrfach in Montreux zu Gast, allerdings gehört diese Show aus dem Jahr 2013 mit Stücken wie „La Grange”, „Gimme All Your Lovin’”, „Pincushion”, „Sharp Dressed Man”, „Waitin’ For The Bus”, „Legs”, „Tube Snake Boogie”, „Tush” und vielen weiteren Klassikern zu ihren besten Auftritten beim legendären Festival. Die Setliste mischt Songs aus den frühen Siebzigern von Alben wie „Tres Hombres” und „Fandango” über die Blockbuster der Achtziger mit Werken wie „Eliminator” und „Afterburner” bis hin zu Nummern ihrer aktuellen Scheibe „La Futura” und der damit verbundenen Rückkehr zu ihren Blues-Wurzeln. Im Mittelteil des Konzerts kommt es zu einer Hommage an Claude Nobs, den Gründer des Montreux Festivals, mit Mike Flanigin an der Hammond Orgel und Van Wilks an der Gitarre. ZZ Top, die „lil’ ol’ band from Texas”, rocken den Blues so kraftvoll wie seit eh und je. Das Bonusmaterial umfasst Interviews mit Gitarrist Billy Gibbons und Bassist Dusty Hill. „Live At Montreux 2013“ wird parallel auch auf DVD (EREDV1040) veröffentlicht.

The band formed in 2004 by Rev. Nick and Mr. G during a somewhat alcohol-inflicted night in Kristanstad, Sweden. Originally the band’s name was supposed to be The Homer Explosion, but was quickly changed to The Random Riots when sobriety struck the day after. Their vision is to play old fashioned rock n roll with rhythm in focus, and does a hell of a job doing it. 

Its members have great experience in the live scene as they are or have been active in other bands such as On The Job (US and European tour), Portrait (European tour) and Care of Night. 

T.R.R. have taken the audience by storm both as a stand-alone act and on joint venues with other bands such as The Scams, Bullet, ’77 and Overdrive. 

In 2013 they entered the studio in order to record a full length album, which you all can enjoy now thanks to the collaboration with Bad Reputation Records!

Der Schwerpunkt der Show lag auf den Songs von „So”, hinzu kamen eine Reihe unvollendeter, bislang unveröffentlichter und neu arrangierter Stücke im Stile der klassischen Hits wie „Sledgehammer”, „Solsbury Hill”, „Don’t Give Up”, „Shock The Monkey”, „Big Time”, „Digging In The Dirt”, „Mercy Street”, „No Self Control”, „In Your Eyes” oder „Biko”, die unterstreichen, welch vielschichtiger Künstler Peter Gabriel ist.

PR material:


The idea for Acacia Avenue began back in 2008. Founding member, Torben Enevoldsen (Fate, Fatal Force, Section A), spent most of that year writing new material. Some of this new material came to be very melodic hard rock/AOR, and the idea of doing a full album in this style quickly emerged. In order to spice things up however, Enevoldsen decided to ask a few good friends of his to participate, both as singers, but also as co-writers.  

The debut album featured Tony Mills (Ex-TNT, Shy), Geir Rönning (Radioactive), Torben Lysholm (Pangea, Mysterell) and Lars Säfsund (Work Of Art) on vocals. Torben did the bass, keyboards and guitars, as well as both lead and backing vocals on a few songs himself, and Thomas Heintzelmann (Decoy) did the drums. The self-entitled debut album was released on Lion Music in January 2010.

Enevoldsen continued doing various projects, but at the end of 2010, Torben was asked to join the Danish hard rock band Fate. He agreed and joined the band in January 2011. Although busy with Fate, Enevoldsen never stopped working on new material of his own. So the idea of doing another Acacia Avenue album was never far away. Torben grew up listening to bands like Boston, Journey, Toto and Survivor, so he thoroughly enjoyed writing in this very melodic and somewhat softer style.

New songs were written and the first singer to get involved was Rob Moratti (Ex-Saga, Final Frontier). Torben and Rob had met each other on MySpace, years before Rob joined Saga, and had discussed the possibility of working together. Acacia Avenue turned out to be the perfect vehicle to pursue this desire.

Apart from Rob, the new album features vocal performances by Steve Newman (Newman), Torben Lysholm (Pangea, Mysterell), Albin Ljungqvist, Mikael Roupé (Bamboo Brothers), Peter Sundell (Grand Illusion, Decoy) and Nicklas Sonne (Defecto).

Once again, Torben was in charge for all the bass, keyboards and guitars, as well as singing background vocals on a few songs. New drummer, Dennis Hansen (Fatal Force) did the drums, and like last time, the majority of the recordings took place at Funny Farm Studios in Denmark, which is Torben's own studio.

The new album, entitled “Cold”, was mixed and mastered at Funny Farm Studios by Torben Enevoldsen. Enevoldsen also produced the album.
