“Urban Folk” is the first official album from songwriter Greg Moverley and delivers his own unique brand of clever originals: timeless, folky, acoustic guitar driven gems, melodic and loaded with memorable lines. Greg deftly touches on the woes of record store owners, empty houses & prostitutes; the highs & lows of barstool drunks & scientology converts; the throes of a soldier's wife who doesn't want to be where she is. Character studies like short stories brought to life that will get stuck in your head; the more you listen the more you'll see.

“Mudhollow” is a stripped-down, organic collection of guitar songs recorded in one session. The performance captures Greg at his best; playing from the heart. Intimate, evocative, dreamy, the sounds he brings forth from his trusty guitar are from the muse pure and simple.

Recorded by: Charles Austin, at Ultramagnetic Studios (AKA “The Mullet”), Halifax, NS (2006)

All songs written and performed by Greg.


“Candy Apples” features some intricately crafted folk songs, performed and recorded by Greg at his sister’s place while dog-sitting.

“Cocooning” is the latest instrumental offering from Greg Moverley; sparse and homemade, folk songs that flow and caress the moment.

“Songs From The Mountain” has some more timeless songs from indie folk master Greg Moverley. Tales of loss and longing, both literate and homespun; nimble picking abounds as Greg settles into his sound.

“Through The Blue” contains more diamond-blasted urban folk gems from Greg Moverley, featuring tales of treacherous neighbourhoods, pretty barkeeps and dangerous sunsets. Performed with his usual brand of absurd and mellow, this is one that’s sure to please.

“Old News” was inspired by some of my favourite kinds of records; field recordings of folk & blues artists like Reverend Gary Davis, Mance Lipscomb and Mississippi John Hurt. Recordings with portable machines capturing these greats in their own natural environment; living rooms, kitchens, back porches, picking and singing. These are some of my favourite songs and I play them any chance I get. I recorded these sitting at my kitchen table. You might hear my dog walking around on some of them; her nails on the linoleum are my kind of percussion.

“Banjero” is me composing intimate instrumentals on the 5-string banjo. I don’t play in a typical Bluegrass fashion and I don’t play in a typical clawhammer style; I just play. According to Urban Dictionary, ‘Banjero’ is “a name given to somebody often found drunk in a sewer”. That works too.

The cover is a drawing by my dad, Doug Moverley, given to me for my 30th birthday. It seems a long time ago now, my 30th. It gets further away year after year :)

“Hedges & Fences” was recorded by me in my kitchen, documenting some songs that fell through the cracks. Some of these songs are old enough to drive. Once they get to be booze buying age, you’d better look out.
