West Coast Beats: New Music from Singer-Songwriter Gregory Ackerman



Gregory Ackerman is a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist born and raised in the Los Angeles area.

Having soaked up the sun and song of the Laurel Canyon air since childhood, his music reflects his views on the world, the people of the world, and the current events that define the world’s history through an easy-to-listen-to acoustic vibe.

We’ve Got a Runner” was a song I wrote after a break up,” explains Los Angeles-based songwriter.  “I recorded it in my room and posted a demo on Soundcloud in 2015, but I always wanted to resurrect it in the studio.”

The song is now the first single from “Stresslove” (Oct. 4th, Munich Records), Ackerman’s upcoming EP of tunes that were written as “love songs meant for those who had fallen out of love.

As with his 2018 debut album And Friends, the “Stresslove” EP was produced by Pierre de Reeder, former bassist with Rilo Kiley, and the engineer of recent recordings with bandmate Jenny Lewis, M. Ward, She & Him, and other notable songwriters.

The EP follows the arc of a failed relationship,” Ackerman continues. “It’s like a sonic version of 19th century painter, Thomas Cole’s series ‘The Course of Empire,’ but for the stages of love.”

Today, Ackerman shared “We’ve Got A Runner” music video, which Folk Radio UK says, “will hook you in from start to finish. Outstanding.”
