After a string of lo-fi DIY releases and almost 2 decades as an underground cult-favorite phenom, Gregory Stovetop is emerging with his first proper studio release - "The Good Stuff", recorded by Ian Gorman in Kalamazoo, mixed by Eddie Spear (Jack White, Willie Nelson) in Nashville and mastered by Glenn Brown (Spinal Tap, Eminem) in Lansing. "The Good Stuff" was co-produced by longtime friends and fans Dominic Davis and Seth Bernard, who selected the songs, studios and players in an effort to put all the pieces together for the best rock record possible.
Gregory Stovetop is a human Olympic Torch. Born and raised in Chelsea, Michigan and currently hailing from Queens, New York, Stovetop has earned a devoted cult following that comes from the underground and is quickly making it's way up into the airwaves around the world. An electrified Earth Angel, radiating love and passion in an original singular world of sound, Gregory Stovetop is as fluent in Elvis and Johnny Cash as he is in Soundgarden and The Replacements.
As a visual artist he has created iconic album covers and miniature stop-animation music videos as well as having Psychedelic Illustration shows in Brooklyn and New York in recent years. He has been involved with a good number of awesome bands in the last decade - Snake Dudes, Firecracker Firecracker, Knockin' Boots, Hy-Lo and the Dangles to name a few, and to see him solo is to witness a true rock star bursting with heart and vibrant color, in his essential element. "The Good Stuff" was co-produced by Dominic Davis and Seth Bernard at La Luna studios in Kalamazoo and features Drew "Captain Midnite" Howard on electric guitar and pedal steel and Adam Danis (the Go Rounds) on drums. Rock and Roll Magic is alive on earth and it is Wild and True, flowing through the one and only Gregory Stovetop. He was born for this. The village is starving - cook and don't stop, Stovetop.

Risks and challenges
Gregory has always been connected to the cosmos as an artist and it seemed auspicious to be able to release this record on the occasion of the total solar eclipse of August 21st, 2017. That gives us the risk and challenge of a short window for fundraising, but the album is all finished, so full speed ahead.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
