He’ll find a way...




Little interesting information about Gregory Abbott other than the fact that he is an American singer-songwriter who will go down mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the big-caliber single "Shake you down", single released in 1986.


For that reason alone, we had to devote this article to him.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1986 ... a single title was enough, This title, to make the fortune and the glory of this fop, to say the least somewhat unknown. All this on a title with absolutely sumptuous finesse that will undoubtedly remain as one of the most successful Ultimate Slows of the decade. MA-GIC !



1986 ... a first year of career 100 % glamorous. And it succeeds him, to say the least ...



1986 ... a triplet of Intimist titles which allowed him to impose his style very quickly. After that, he shouldn't lock himself up a little too quickly in this niche without taking an interest in others ...



1988 ... he does not intend to change it at first glance for the moment. Rightly or wrongly, that's another thing because too much Intimist could kill the Intimist on terms ...



1988 ... it is clear that there will be no major changes until the end of the decade. On the other hand, as long as he maintains a sufficient level of quality, we will be largely satisfied with it !



1988 ... ah, we couldn't believe it anymore but here comes the long awaited evolution on the tempo side. And my faith, the result is not that bad ...



1988 ... a parenthesis immediately closed. A hard-line which is increasingly beginning to isolate him and deprive him of recognition commensurate with its merits ...



1994 ... he disappears from the radar for almost 6 years and here he is back in this year 1994 in a form that we will qualify as average. The style has changed little and this is not necessarily what we expected from 6 years of forced or wanted break ...



1994 ... in the same vein. Frankly too bad he didn't try to explore other musical paths because he had the musical talent to ...



1996 ... as much as the 1980s will have been focused on the Intimist, the 1990s will have been focused on Afro-Caribbean rhythms. We cannot say that he is unworthy in this register there, far from it, but his lack of audacity will have cost him a high price in terms of recognition among the general public ...



1996 ... he finally tries to adapt to the latest musical trends but the train of modernity has passed and he unfortunately missed it. Hard law of the trade ...



2002 ... once again he goes back to his comfort zone, once again a reflex that is counterproductive to say the least. There is nothing to do, we will not do him again ...



2005 ... by wanting to play the 'Serial Lover' too much, he will have weighed down his career in an almost automatic way. Only him still continues to believe in what he produces ...



2012 ... this does not prevent him from going through the decades as he sees fit and especially without really taking into account the result of his titles in the Charts. Afterwards, it is him who sees as they say ...



2013 ... anyway, he's still here today. So, in the end, maybe he was the one who was right to lead his career in this way ...



2017 ... always and again ! A desire to move forward again and again which undoubtedly commands respect. Especially since he is far from being ridiculous, even more than 30 years after its debut ...



2018 ... for the moment the adventure will not go further but with him, everything is possible. Who knows if he does not intend to make us an umpteenth comeback the following decade. So to follow ...
