BOYCE is the new brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Gregory Boyce.
After two acoustic rock albums and a jazz-fusion CD, Gregory decided it was time to go back to his heavy-metal roots.
The songs range from straight ahead metal to complex arrangements you would come to expect from the progressive-metal genre.
“There are a lot of surprises on each album. Spanish style guitars, time changes, style changes. There are even a couple songs you
could probably dance to! (laughs)
Mainly, the idea was to keep the listener guessing while still being entertained!”
"Back From The Dead" the latest single from Boyce!
Taken from the Boyce II album "Over And Over Again" is our favorite track from Boyce - Listen here!
Gregory Boyce is a virtual one man band. Everything you hear on the CD is him, guitars, bass, drums, all vocals, everything. Done one track at a time. All songs are originals completely composed by Gregory Boyce. They are all based on life experiences and are very personal to the artist.
Gregory Boyce has been playing music since he was old enough to hold a guitar or sit behind a drum set.
The songwriting is very much that of a story teller and his guitar playing is reminiscent of Al DiMeola and Mark Knopfler.
As the result of being a one man band he is unable to tour.
This is his second career acoustic rock album!

Boyce is heavy, but also incorporates melody. Sometimes progressive, sometimes not. Anything and everything goes with Boyce, for example, don't be surprised to hear flamenco guitars in the middle of a heavy song. Boyce always tries to keep the listener guessing and entertained on what they might hear next. With Boyce every song is a little different than the others and offers great variety to his fans.
