Sailing for the Sun, is the second solo album by singer/songwriter Greg Dayton, produced and mixed by Adrian Harpham, and mastered by Greg Calbi in New York City. This versatile singer/songwriter/guitarist was inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame shortly after the self-release of his debut solo album, Lonesome Road in 2016. He began work on the new album in January of 2018, taking his time to create an album in the old school sense of the word, conceived with vinyl in mind where each song counts and the song order has meaning.
