From Riverside, IL an historic old world town, dotted with dimly lit gas street lights and winding wooded roads is where it all began for singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/producer, Greg Wallace. Injected with a fervor and determination after many fruitless attempts to find musicians to collaborate with, Greg set out on his own to not only write, but also to lay all tracks, arrange, record and distribute his own music. His creation was the Greg Wallace an-tith-esis.
Classified as “a modern American pop rock space shuttle, designed to heighten your senses and travel to the unknown without ever forgetting our classic rock predecessors here on earth.” Keep an eye out for Greg in the months to come.
Houston, Texas has produced a number of great artists who have had a major impact on popular music. Born and raised in Houston himself, singer-songwriter Griffin Swank dreams of carrying his passion in the same direction. Working his way into the scene from open mic nights, Griffin began to build a name for himself – playing restaurant gigs and venues like Fitzgerald’s and McGonigel’s Mucky Duck. He lives and feeds off of many diverse genres that surround him, inspiring the creation of a unique music style, one described as “acoustic-folk pop” by the Houston Chronicle.
Swank, 19, has emerged as a sophisticated multi-instrumentalist and a prolific songwriter. “Griffin has a stage presence and performing style that is far more mature than most others his age,” says Grammy winning producer/engineer, Randy Miller. Miller continues, “Griffin is the real deal. He’s already a professional. Griffin can really sing a song and his music is fun and easy to listen to.”
Griffin currently lives in Austin, Texas, where he is finalizing his debut full-length record.
