You hear it more and more, the phrase “these are strange times.” We wonder what lies ahead and what shape “normality” might take if and when life begins to sink back into a more relaxed pace, free from all of the additional anxiety brought on by the pandemic.
If these past six months have been challenging for most of us, the previous year was the most difficult yet for this seasoned songwriter and performer. They say good can always come from adversity, and that’s how it’s been for Gregory Page, with time to pause, reflect and reassess much of what went before and hopefully look forward to brighter, less angst-filled days ahead.
His last album, A Wild Rose, with tips of the hat to the Irish roots that mean so much to him was well-received on both sides of the Atlantic, and with this new recording, he’s been tugged back even
closer to that side of his life, which has maybe become even more important to him at a time when sound bedrock and stability were needed to steady him for the turmoil he had to confront.
The theme of fighting the good fight is highlighted in a poignant song set in 1916, a lyrical tribute to Page’s Irish grandmother and her brave young brother who at age fifteen gave his life for freedom’s cause.
Talking about the new project in more general terms, Gregory explains:
“This album came out of an extremely difficult period in my life, one in which I found myself fighting a very powerful force. Although I understood the risk I was taking by going up against this giant, I resolved to push forward, and with the help and support of close friends who believed in me, I made it through all the stress and strain of that hellish year and against all odds actually ended up prevailing.” When the dust began to settle, he felt “a tremendous sense of relief, as well as gratitude for a win that was not just my own, but for all artists and people facing a behemoth struggle.
I can honestly say that it’s in the hardest of times that a person finds out not only who his friends are, but also what he’s truly made of.” The track, “Change in the Weather” encapsulates this personal journey - a tumultuous time, filled with painful, but necessary transformations. “The Promise”, written in Yerevan , Armenia harnesses the power of dreams in our uphill journey . “Green Lights & Blue Skies” speaks of pure and unadulterated hope, “shooting straight up to the sun, after all the clouds have blown away.” Now, he can relish the thought of genuinely new beginnings... and look back on One Hell Of A Memory.
