In a business where jadedness and cynicism often creeps in wordlessly, Parker's passion for his music is refreshing and infectious. He has the looks of a heartbreaker and the soul of a songwriter. The vocals are effortless, the inflections expressive, youthful and energy driven, and the music admirably uncluttered. This five song EP is a noteworthy introduction to a talent that's on the brink.
-Laurie Joulie, Take Country Back
Parker sings with a breaking croon that is full and slightly twangy but never corny and always quite persuasive-in fact, he blows away Tritt, McGraw, Keith, Hill, Brooks, Twain, Tucker, Black, and all their miserable ilk, with just his vibrant voice alone.
-Jack Rabid, Big Takeover
What ultimately sets Parker apart is the sense of ownership he exudes over his music. These aren't just conventional, rehashed country hits. Rather, Parker takes what made Music City USA so great back in the day and modernizes it in a fully meaningful way.
-Alecia Koledin, selloutmag.com
Young, handsome, of clear voice and possessed with a sense of country and pop history beyond the scope of a lad of his age, Parker is positioned to be the next somebody, or the first him.
-Waymon Timbsdayle, Roctober
Imagine if Scott Miller got drunk with Hank Williams, then called up Lyle Lovett to come over for a nightcap and some White Castles. That's a start on what to expect from On The Break by Greg Parker.
-Kevin Gibson, louisvillemusic.com
With modern country becoming nearly indistinguishable from bad pop rock, it's refreshing when someone like Greg Parker comes along. Blessed with a rich, tremulous twang, Parker's musical sensibilities are rooted firmly in vintage country with an electric twist. It's like hearing Hank Williams or the Statler Brothers play the House of Blues -- not a bad way to spend a night. Because the disc clocks in at just under fifteen minutes, it makes for almost compulsive use of your disc player's "repeat" button. More, please.
-Splendid, Justin Kownacki
On The Break deserves support and attention from everyone claiming to enjoy undiluted country.
