Biography

I've been performing and making records for the last 20 years, mostly with my groups Dillon Fence and HOBEX. If you don't know either of these groups, you should! We released some great albums on Mammoth, Atlantic, London, and Tone-Cool Records in the '90s and '00s and toured constantly.

I self-released my first solo album, "Trunk Songs", last year. The instrumentation is acoustic - somewhat of a departure from the sound of my electric bands, but still centered around my voice, guitar playing, and songcraft. I still do electric gigs, but I've been exploring acoustic music and making quieter records. It's just where my songwriting is taking me right now.

I toured a lot to support "Trunk Songs", thanks to my longtime booking agent Brad Madison at Mongrel Music. I'm working on a follow-up LP release for Fall 2010 that is shaping up to be quite a genre adventure. Excited about it. Would love to play the Americana Music Festival and Conference - I'm a fan of what y'all do.

Thanks,
Greg
