“Greg Connors is back with the release of is his new EP Holographic Static Proportion; it’s rough around the edges, jarring at times, (occasionally even skull-rattling). This album has all the earmarks Connors has become known for, brutally capricious lyrics and a quick dark wit. As a writer, he continues to mine the rubble of human relationships for nuggets of understanding and tenderness amongst the fury and confusion.  A versatile storyteller, Connors will draw you in, hit you hard where it hurts and probably give you a good laugh as well.

Where were you when that tree fell in the forest? Check out Holographic Static Proportion and see what you hear…”

So that’s when I went through the good old music library and came across one of my all-time favorite songs. Among the Wildflowers.

I remember the bullying. I remember them hurting me, but also me hurting myself. Have you ever had a period in your life where you feel like you just don’t belong anywhere? That’s the feeling I’ve been having all my life. Although it’s obviously not a very nice feeling, it’s led me to think in a big way & do great things, like a few of my biggest achievements: writing my own songs & releasing my first single.
