..."Deep inside, and I think everybody can experience this, we wonder... if we have more in us and what we can do and how we can grow in our craft. This album, as a result, represents for me something very meaningful because it's really going to a new place, new songs that are fun, that are playful, that have humor in them, which is a very important part of who I am." Gregg Robins
Welcome to the third Weekend Inspiration podcast. This is Peter Clayton and I've already decided to change the format of this new TotalPicture Radio feature... somewhat. This week, there's more than just me talking! However, it is still a short interview - under 10 minutes. And I do hope all of you weekend musicians, writers, artists, filmmakers (fill in your creative passion here _________) will find this podcast motivating and inspirational.
Many of us dream of pursuing creative passions. My special guest today has followed his dream and turned it into reality. Joining me from his home in Moscow is singer/songwriter Gregg Robins. I met Gregg in 1998. He was in a senior leadership position with Citibank's Private Banking Group in Geneva, Switzerland, I was traveling around Europe shooting films for Citi on issues related to Y2K and the conversion to the Euro, (which took place at exactly the same time - January 1, 2000), Gregg was featured in a number of my Citi video productions, and we became good friends.
I last interviewed Gregg in the fall of 2011, when his debut album Everything That Matters was released. (You'll find a link to that interview on the sidebar). He has a new Demo CD titled Snowing in April, available as a free download from his Web site!
