Greg’s musical career began in the rock industry as a singer-songwriter guitarist with Newcastle band DV8. Since the mid ’90s, returning from two and a half years studying and teaching yoga in India, Greg focused most of his energy on acoustic music. His high energy, percussive guitar style draws from many influences including pop, blues, funk, rock, jazz and bluegrass.
A blend of three part harmonies mixed with keyboards, guitar and percussion provide a soulful and high impact repertoire making Gen-R-8 one of Newcastle’s finest vocal acts. Since formed, Gen-R-8 has perfected its sound with regular performances around the club scene in Sydney and Newcastle. The trio delivers a repertoire of soulful Funk, Swing, Rock and R’n’B.
Taking instantly to the piano Matt, from the small Hunter Valley town of Denman, took lessons from the age of 3 until 16. Even though he is classically trained Matt now gravitates towards pop, funk, dance and blues covers. When Matt isn't playing covers his music draws inspiration from a wide variety of artists. Matt has been performing professionally full time around the Newcastle region at local venues, weddings, corporate events and functions. in 2016 Matt placed in the Top Five of Channel Nine's- Australia's Got Talent! Matt and his guide dog Stamford have travelled nationally and internationally and Matt will continue to take his best friend and signature red instrument on the road.
