Our guest this episode, Greg Sykes, is one of those folks that we seem to run into a lot, and we’re always the better for it. The Covenant Award winning songwriter and worship leader hails from St. Catherines, Ontario (Canada!). His debut EP, Reverse, was released March 10, 2017, by Integrity Music.
Despite juggling family and multiple careers, Greg generously gave of his time to chat with Dan. In his humble, soft-spoken manner, Greg takes on topics like receiving criticism with grace, how Michael W. Smith influences his art, and – most importantly – how he fights for balance between prioritizing his family and pursuing his career in music.
