Underground Interview With Gregory Julas
Gregory Julas is from a small town in Alberta, Canada. He says "It’s wide open prairie here, as far as you can see, beautiful really, with clouds that come right down and touch the earth." Gregory is a bit of a social activist at heart.
So lately he's writing about maintaining identity in the middle of a lot of deception and corruption in the world. Oppression, deception, and other harms to humanity have been written about for a long time by rock (and other) songwriters. One needs to sift through the corruption to find out what is really going on, and what is really relevant and wise in these difficult times, and what to stand up against.
The songwriters he loves really expose these things in their songs and that is what he wants to do as well, but in different times and settings. Gregory Julas takea his influences from Grunge, Hard Rock, and Metal. I am really focused right now as a songwriter and plan on pounding out a lot of new rock.
