Greg is Australia’s only authentic 1920s - 1930s singer.
Unlike other jazz singers who find jazz after a journey through rock, opera or miming to a parent’s record collection of snappy-fingered Vegas crooners, Greg’s 1920s-30s vocals are authentic and original.
He fell in love with the music age three. That's when he first heard Louis Armstrong.
