MUSIC TO MAKE THE ROOM SMILE
SOLO PIANO GROUP (SPG) featured artist Shock G., of digital underground fame, put it best when he said this is “music to make the room smile.” Launched in March 2020, the Northern California based SPG series presents a collection of relaxing recordings by world renowned pianists and composers from across the globe.
SPG is a totally new direction for producer Atron Gregory and TNT Recordings. “Music has always been a huge part of my life whether it was Hip-Hop, R&B, gospel or jazz,” stated Gregory. “I’ve been thinking about this music for quite some time and with all that is going on in the world today, I thought it was the perfect time to share it.” SPG pulls together pianists to create original music, purposefully composed to give people an opportunity to “relax, meditate, take a deep breath and live in the moment as opposed to looking at the past and worrying about the future.”
SPG has released 4 full length albums, ‘Mellow Moods’, ‘Reflect N Chill’, ‘Piano and Rain’ and ‘Piano and Waterfalls’ and a number of digital singles. Songs from SPG are already featured on dozens of Spotify playlists, as well as international curated playlists and have found placement on the series “5th Ward”, streaming on Amazon Prime. SPG will be featured on the series “A Hip-Hop Life” from the Vyre network, and has recently partnered with WNBA star Monique Billings and released a limited vinyl pressing of solo piano recordings by legendary hip-hop artist, producer and pianist Shock G., simply entitled ‘The Piano Man’.
