The work of Canadian singer/songwriter Ricasso (a.k.a Greg Hargarten) usually falls into two distinct styles: folk-esque acoustic rock or electric-charged hard rock.
His discography meanders back and forth between these styles, but at the heart of it all, solid, durable songwriting and melodies that stick in your head.
His latest effort, Overgrown, is no exception. A departure from the straight ahead rock format of his previous two albums, Overgrown is a return to the more folky style evident on his debut release, Disgraceland. The album showcases Ricasso’s songwriting diversity, pitting introspective ballads against powerful, dark rockers; feel-good pop against longing alternative country. It also boasts a great guest line-up, including Kenny Greer (Red Rider) on pedal steel and Jason Fowler (John McDermott, Amy Sky) on guitar.
Over the years Ricasso’s songwriting has earned critical recognition by the industry, acknowledgment by the press, as well as air-play on commercial radio and campus stations across Canada. He is the two-time winner of ROCK102's Radiostar National Songwriting Competition at Canada Music Week, he has had his songs covered by other artists and been included on numerous compilation albums. He has also produced several albums for other artists most notably Dancing with Angels, the award-winning debut album by Eileen Laverty.
