Welcome to the Nowhere Motel

Pennsylvania-born alt-country singer and songwriter Greg Koons’ lyrics carry a sense of plainspoken poetry exemplified in mouthful titles like “A Picture of My Pa Before He Died in Vietnam.” Greg’s conversational delivery, reminiscent of Tom Petty with a twangy twinge of Dwight Yoakam, is abetted by the sure touch of players like keyboardist Matt Keating, bass player Jason Mercer and Duane Jarvis (who passed away in April) on Dobro. Welcome to the Nowhere Motel allows us to discover a quietly clever tunesmith with a gift for finding the sad beauty in everyday dilemmas and disappointments.
