About The Parade
“The Parade displays blazing guitars with soulful guitar solos, meaningful
lyrics and powerful vocals to keep the listener engaged”
– Greg Sover
The Parade is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed “Jubilee”, and reinforces that he is one of the top emerging blues/rock artists in his home base of Philadelphia and beyond.
The Parade includes a version of the song “Politician” from the legendary band Cream, certainly relevant to the upcoming United States Presidential election. It was released as a single mid-year, in time for the primary election season and received significant local and international airplay..
Of special note, the Interlude that follows “Wake Up”. includes part of an instrumental piece written specifically as a memorial to George Floyd. On a personal level, Sover sings “Never Too Late”, a song written for his late mother.
The Parade is once again produced by Greg Sover Band bassist Garry Lee along with Sover and Mike Tarsia. Sover’s band of Philly heavyweights with extensive resumes also includes guitarist Allen James and drummer Tom Walling.
