Christian Gregory - FUV Live - 2014

by Rita Houston

UK newcomer Christian Gregory introduces us to his style of old soul music in his American radio debut appearance. Christian's story is just starting to be told. He's from London, raised in Oxford, and is an interesting combination of artist and record label boss. He started his own indie label in London called Movement Records and brought in old friend and musical like-mind Michael Kiwanuka to help with artist development. There is long history of British soul music, and there's no doubt there is a growing soul scene happening in the UK these days with artists like Sam Smith, Laura Mvula and Emelie Sande. It will be interesting to watch Movement Records and Christian Gregory move it forward. Christian has a 4-song EP out now, and his full length debut will follow early next year.
