Bio

Born in Scotland, Greg started his musical life at an early age taking lessons, first on the piano aged 5, and then on the cello one year later.
After studying cello at the Royal Northern College of Music, Greg started freelance work with a number of different orchestras including the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, the Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, the English National Orchestra and the Performing Arts Symphony Orchestra.
However, during his time in Manchester Greg has been leading a double life, working both as a singer in his own right and as a writer and producer of rock and pop music.
A particular highlight, winning a competition run by Manchester's Key 103 radio station resulted in the opportunity to sing one of his own songs, "Something More", to a packed Manchester Evening News Arena in July 2002.
As the keyboard player and Musical Director for the Howard Keel Golf Classic event, Greg works with musicians such as Don Felder (Eagles), Tony Christie, Rick Wakeman and John Miles. He was also invited to become the official MD in the UK for Don Felder, joining him onstage at the Dunhill Links Championship in 2005 at St Andrews, alongside Bon Jovi's Tico Torres.
June 2006 saw the chance to play in the opening act for two of Bon Jovi's UK tour dates at the Milton Keynes National Bowl in front of over 120,000 people.
Having grown up surrounded by many different types of music, Greg draws on a vast range of influences for his own work and is constantly experimenting with various styles in performance, in writing and in producing.
