Everything That Matters: An Interview with Gregg Robins

A Journey Across the Spectrum of Human Emotion and Experience

 
Gregg Robins, Everything that MattersGregg Robins

Many of us dream of pursuing creative passions. Gregg Robins has followed his dream and turned it into reality.

This is Peter Clayton, welcome to a Big Picture Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio. I have the delight of having on the show a good friend, Gregg Robins, whom I met many years ago when he was at Citibank. We did a bunch of films together in Europe, while he was running the Private Bank's communications initiative to convert to the Euro, and handling all the issues around Y2K. Gregg currently lives in Moscow. This is a really unusual podcast for us because we're going to take a very personal journey into Gregg's life.

We recorded this interview in New York, when Gregg was here to master an album that he has written and produced with the help of some very remarkable musicians. I wanted Gregg to tell the story of how this evolved. Obviously, he came from the business world, but has a real passion and a talent for music.

Gregg's new album, titled "Everything that Matters" debuts October 25. You can learn more about Gregg and listen to much of his music on his web site, greggrobins.com.

An interesting bit of serendipity. One of the songs you'll hear about in our interview is called "Heroes" -- written for our soliders fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Gregg wanted to donate all of the proceeds from the song to a non-profit organization helping our soldiers return to civilian life. I recommended HonorVet, having interviewed Jesse Canella, the organization's Co-Founder. Now, all of the proceeds from Heroes will go to HonorVet.

In the liner notes, Gregg writes, "Everything that Matters, is a journey for me across the spectrum of human emotion and experience : from heartbreak to love, separation to reuniting, to the euphoria of an historic election and the spirit and saga of our soldiers far away... While the songs vary musically, for me the common thread is the lyrics that I try to make honest, forthright, and hopeful."
