Greg Laswell already has had many of his songs featured in various TV shows. His song Sweet Dreams was just featured in FOX's Dollhouse. But it's no wonder every TV show uses his music because his songs are incredibly heart felt and simple. No showy production, just a simple piano, acoustic guitar, and maybe a few strings. Laswell's voice carries much of the song with great melodies. It has an inherently sad quality to it that makes it the perfect soundtrack to your next wallow session. But this guy isn't new to the music scene. In fact, he is on his third album. His latest Three Flights From Alto Nido came out last year. It features great songs like Comes and Goes (In Waves), from the HBO movie Taking Chance, and my favorite I'd Be Lying.
His music relies on simple melodies mixed with a David Gray-esque quality with a dash of Coldplay. You will have to hear for yourself. Laswell deserves to be more than "that guy with the song in that show." His song Off I Go was recently featured prominently in the season finale of Grey's Anatomy. Make sure you listen to his excellent cover of Girls Just Want to Have Fun below.
