Originally from Richmond, VA, Greg Moved to Boston for its rich Folk Music tradition and has become one of its most unique and superlative emissaries. His "In the Name of Love" a lead into the U2 Classic, "Pride," was the #5 song on the folk DJ List in 2013. It has become a defining piece on his journey to becoming an international artist capable of addressing sensitive topics like Race in a way that connects audiences to their humanity while entertaining them at the same time.
Musically, Greenway's guitar, piano, and ukulele reflect inspiration from all over the map–gospel, rock, blues, Jazz, and world music. But his center is in the singer/songwriter tradition that traces its roots all the way back to the social awareness of Woody Guthrie. His central appeal is that it all comes through the singular lens of Greenway’s own humanity and affinity for the audience. He has legendary energy, couched in a presentation of high spirited give and take with such good humor that audiences unfailingly walk away uplifted.
