New York-based americana artist Greg Jacquin shares the video for “Floating” via Pure Grain Audio, who writes about the track, “‘Floating,’ is a lazy but upbeat tune that whisks the listener away to a nearby stream on a warm, sunny day.”
“Floating” is the second track off Jacquin’s recently released Hudson River LP. In Jacquin’s own words, “‘Floating’ is a song about having to move back to the town you grew up in after years of falling out of touch with everyone and everything.”
Greg Jacquin traces his roots and his inspiration to the Hudson Valley in New York. Born in Sleepy Hollow in 1970 to a young single Cuban immigrant who worked as a waitress, Jacquin spent much of his early life with his Cuban grandparents and grew up on The Beatles and Cat Stevens. He picked up his stepdad’s guitar as soon as he could hold it, and began playing in bands in high school, recording several albums in the early ’90s. Years spent having a family and working took him away from music, but after retiring from law enforcement and facing personal obstacles, songwriting led him back. Jacquin found new energy for music along the Hudson Valley in the company of the many creative artists who live there.
Returning to music in the past decade with a variety of exceptional bands and while parenting his youngest child, Jacquin has re-emerged as a musician with a new LP Hudson River, out now. Jacquin’s band consists of singer, songwriter and piano player Paul Griffin and singer, songwriter and guitarist Rich Berta who share songwriting duties. Bass player Lalit Loomba and drummer Peter Wilson hold down the bottom end. The band is currently based in the Hudson Valley, NY and is preparing to tour in anticipation of their full length follow-up album expected to be ready for an early 2019 release.
