"Listen Local: 6 New Releases from Louisville Musicians"

Even if you don’t recognize the name right away, chances are you’re familiar with Greg Tripure. Having spent 20 years recording and touring as the rhythm guitarist and backup singer for Sub-Urban Situation, and sharing the stage with the likes of Robert Randolph, Houndmouth, Devon Allman, Sister Hazel, Perpetual Groove, The Phunk Junkeez, Ana Popovic, Nappy Roots, and The Villebillies, among many others, Tripure brings a wealth of experience to his debut solo album, Stranger to This World.

Of the 12 songs on the album, only four were available for preview for this review. Lead single “Be” would sound right at home amongst the tracks on Neil Young’s Harvest. And then there’s the funky backbeat of the folky “Picking Up the Pieces of You,” and the slower, bluesy Americana tracks “Waiting for the Leaves” and “Don’t Go Too Far.”

Stranger in This World is a heartfelt musical journey that draws on a rich tapestry of genres such as folk, R&B, Americana, roots rock, and blues, and showcases Tripure’s versatility as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. Recorded at 4:10 Studios in Corydon, In., with former Carrollton bassist and backing vocalist Jordan Bailey, Stranger in This World exudes authenticity and warmth, firmly establishing Greg Tripure as a solo artist with a distinctive voice and an album that resonates with sincerity and soul. - LEO Weekly (author Jeff Polk)
