BIOGRAPHY

Greg started drumming at the age of five. He grew up in Bournemouth and had lessons locally until he gained a specialist place at Wells Cathedral School in Somerset. In the five years he spent there, Greg was involved in many styles of music including Classical, Big Band and Samba.

 

In 2006, Greg studied for two years at the Royal College of Music before moving to Drumtech in West London. In 2009, he was offered a six month UK Theatre Tour of The Who’s Quadrophenia. Under the watchful eye of Pete Townshend, Greg put his mark down as a rock drummer, which has led him to working with some of the top musicians in the world. 

 

In 2012, having seen Greg play in Quadrophenia, Simon Townshend invited him to play on his ’Secret Weapon’ tour. 

The other musicians for this tour were Tony Lowe (Guitar) and Phil Spalding (Bass); both of whom have had a close connection to Greg’s career since.

 

Greg has gigged in reputable venues across the UK with both original artists and function bands alike. 

As well as this, he has worked with several West End musical directors. In 2010, Greg worked at the Young Vic in London for  the ‘Human Comedy’ and ‘My Dad’s a Birdman’.
