Double Standard second vinyl only delivery is the debut release from one half of No Regular Play, Greg Paulus, with a sumptuous selection of wholesome music. Quickly building a reputation for well-made, somewhat obscure but always rewarding music, Double Standard introduces another member of the family in Greg Paulus.

It displays what I am able to do, when I have no limitations whatsoever, stylistically and instrumentally,” explained Greg.

During this time Greg studied and worked with many artists including James Brown drummer Jabo Starks and Lauryn Hill.

They subsequently formed the group No Regular Play and began releasing multiple records on Wolf + Lamb. Greg is curre
