He and fellow enthusiast Michael Kiwanuka have even formed a label, Movement Records, to release the updated soul music they love. Turns out their first artist is Christian Gregory himself, with an EP called <em>Count On You</em> out on August 18. Recording the album live to tape, Gregory is definitely onto something, as you will hear. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 WXPN-FM.

Earlier this year he self-released his second album, <em>Metamodern Sounds in Country Music</em>. He has called it a "social consciousness" concept album disguised as a country record. That may be, but there is no disguising Sturgill's amazing voice and the songwriting on this record. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 WXPN-FM.
