SongVault Artist Profile
California, United States
Rock & Roll / Rockabilly
Greg Cross grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and started playing guitar at age 11. At the age of 15, Greg took up the drums and after three years of studying jazz, blues and rock, Greg started playing with various projects in the late 80’s and early 90’s. After playing in several different bands as a drummer, one of his band mates asked him to start singing back up and Greg was hooked! Greg has been singing and writing his own songs ever since.
In 2002, Greg met K. Timothy McDonald and found they had a similar love of music and rock & roll! Featuring the virtuoso guitar skills of K. Timothy McDonald, the duo wrote many blues & rock songs influenced by the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Otis Redding and Led Zeppelin. Together with Bassist Marty Cohen, they formed "Kieran Cross", and played at cafes, bars, nightclubs, and fund raising events throughout California.
After two years with Kieran Cross, Greg decided to go solo and perform his unique blend of rock, pop, blues and rockabilly! With the help of some friends, Greg completed his first solo EP in 2005 featuring the song North Dakota! “There has been such a tremendous response to this song, people tell me they play it over and over; and that’s’ what I live for”!
Greg recently finished his second EP and is currently playing with his 5 piece band in the San Francisco Bay Area.
