”Gregory Boyd is an amazing musician. His music is fresh, he is a great singer and a next level steel drum artist. And he brings the Funk!!! Big Time!!”

Ida Nielsen -Bassist- PRINCE 3rd Eye Girl

"I love this guy! Okay, where do I begin? He's playing steel drum and singing-how many times do you see that? It is very innovative. His improvisation is really great! I love what he is doing! Singing with his instrument-I've never seen anyone do that. It's a whole new twist!"
Cassandra Wilson- Grammy Award Winning Vocalist Composer

"soulful," "uplifting" and "melodically clever."
Music Connection Los Angeles

“...with genious and aloofness of Monk, blended with the soulfulness of Al Green, coupled with the musical presence of Jimi Hendrix, Boyd can Jazz, Funk and Ring in the Blues.......
Pan on The Net - Pan On The Net

"Gregory's playing during his time in New Orleans in the '90s really opened up my ears to what is possible on the steel pans." Nicholas Payton
Nicholas Payton Grammy Award Winning Musician

Gregory's music is a real bridge between pianists in jazz, R&B, world and world class pan players. He has fully mastered his craft. And he is writing great songs.

Cassandra Wilson- Grammy Award Winning Vocalist Composer, does not seem to know much about who has been doing what with the pan.

Saying that someone "Singing with his instrument-I've never seen anyone do that. It's a whole new twist!" shows her lack of knowledge.

It is not a new twist just because you have never seen anyone do that.

I have been doing that since for the past 30 years in Denmark, together with another Trindadian Roy Pascal.

Please get your facts right before writing.
