1. COMMERCIAL RADIO AIRPLAY?
2. More than 1 MILLION YouTube plays?
3. True-to-the-era vocals with BRILLIANT musicianship?
But Greg Poppleton, authentic 1920s - 1930s singer and band, has all of the above. In his own words...
"Hooked on jazz from age three. That's when I saw Louis Armstrong on TV. I've never had any interest in contemporary music since.
That what makes me such a completely original singer, I don't sound like anyone else. I sound straight out of the 1920s and 30s.
“Jazz is about the here and now,” I said in a radio interview. “Even in a show of 1920s-30s songs, everything is improvised on the spot. That makes the music fresh, alive and exciting.”
Some say I'm a vaudevillian. I'm certainly high-energy.
The musically lactose-intolerant say, "More, please!"
People with allergies to the current plague of cutsey jazzbirds of both male and female plumage throw away their epi-pens.
That's why critics write that I capture the 1920s - 1930s vocal style to perfection.
I was auditioned twice for the band leader role in Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby.
And ‘They Didn’t Believe Me’ from my new album ‘Back In Your Own Backyard’ was picked for the soundtrack of a new German-Israeli movie co-production, The Cake Maker.
I'm a feature film, TV, stage actor and voiceover - worked with Nicole Kidman, John Goodman and Adrien Brody.
And if you need a 1920s Orchestra, I lead one of those: The Lounge Bar Lotharios.
I've released four albums. Two have been played on commercial radio."
