Greg Cipes CD
(antiMusic) Greg Cipes's band Cipes and The People will release their album Conscious Revolution this Fall. You may know Cipes already. According to a PR blurb, An accomplished actor on hit TV shows House, Ghost Whisperer, Without a Trace and Deadwood, a voiceover artist on Disney Channel's W.I.T.C.H. and Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! along with Cartoon Network's Teen Titans and a professional junior surfer, the Florida-born Cipes comes from a show business family. His grandparents both acted professionally and his father was a TV director who became successful in real estate, then traveled extensively with his family, often taking them to the Bahamas, where Cipes heard reggae music for the first time.
"I was divinely placed in a position to see how the music made those living in poverty feel so good," he says. "The culture and the warmth of the people always intrigued me."
Citing reggae, hip-hop and rock as his main influences, the 27-year-old packed up his yellow Nissan Xterra and moved to Los Angeles to study directing at USC, but dropped out within weeks when he landed a pilot at Warner Bros. "Music has always been part of my life," he says, citing such disparate inspirations as Bob Marley, the Doors, Sublime and Miami bass rappers 2 Live Crew, whose battle for freedom of speech attracted a young Cipes as much as their music. "But it only started to take this form seven years ago." - Is it worth buying? Listen and decide for yourself.
