Gregory Hoskins : Alone in the Mayor's House... almost

© Candyrat Records / Gregory Hoskins 2008

Almost a solo accoustic recording. That was the idea, but a number of the tracks have gh on electric and Gary Craig joins in on almost half the recording which took place over 3 days in October, 2008. Just a couple of microphones in the room that you see to the left here and that's it– a raw and honest capturing of the songs. The material is culled from The Beggar Heart and The King of Good Intentions. Standouts include Never A Stranger Kiss and Illuminate (solo).

There is a house in the town of Guelph, Ontario, Canada, that sits on the slope of a small hill, overlooking the slow river moving through the town’s center. This 160 year old stone house belonged to one of the town’s earliest mayors and served the local doctor for a time. The current owners of the property host an annual concert series...an intimate explosion of music and listening. The hospitality, textures, and spirit of the home made a deep impression on me. I couldn’t think of a better place to make a recording like this.

Gregory Hoskins : The King of Good Intentions

Folk / Alternative

"Gregory's debut solo outing is a superb effort, with some extremely strong music. Whatever your musical taste, there's sure to be something here to enjoy.” - Heard –International Releases

“His voice is haunting throughout and his lyrics speak of the hard lessons he has obviously learned over the last decade. The King Of Good Intentions is a welcome re-introduction to this gifted Canadian songwriter.” - Jason Shneider Echo weekly
