Greg is a multi-instrumental, clickity-clack, and turn-the-knobs on the pedals kind of guy. Human Flourishing, Greg’s main project performed with noise-partner Conor Perreault, creates ethereal atmospheres and almost-songs that bubble up from swamps, jump from dungeons, and cascade into sunny fields. Ranging from vocal loop harmonies, to drum machine frenzy, to acoustic performative percussion, Greg resides in the space between song and drone. Greg and Conor hail originally from Windsor, Connecticut but now reside in the best pizza cities in the world, informing their musical cheese and sauce. Greg currently resides in Ridgewood, Queens and is a fringe member of the Ridgewood Ripper Club for Experimental Folks. (New York City NY) humanflourishing.xyz; Bandcamp
