ABOUT

Hello and welcome to my profile! To start, a little about myself - I've been a "bedroom musician" for about the past 10 years with experience here and there playing with keyboardists, drummers, and guitarists. I picked up the bass guitar as my first instrument around the age of 20 primarily because of how badass I thought Gene Simmons was. As I made my way past the KISS catalog, I began finding different musicians and genres that really inspired me. In the past decade, I've made really awesome explorations into music such as Mizell-brothers jazz/funk records, 80's and 90's east coast hip hop, psychedelic rock from Poland, current jazz music coming out of the UK, disco, Japanese funk, classic rock, and 90's and current alternative rock. What I really want to do now is take my bass playing to that next level - I want to be in a band. I am hard working, easy to get along with, reliable, and I just love playing music! I would love to talk if you think you have an opportunity for me! Thanks for looking! -Greg

PS - I currently live in Naperville, next to where Route 59 meets I-88.
