Born in Australia, raised in Toronto and New York, briefly a resident in Colorado, Ohio, and North Carolina, Greg Tannen is the son of an amateur jazz pianist and the grandson of a magician.
His music has "won more awards than his website has space to list, such is it's quality" and with one listen, it’s easy to hear why. Besides a flood of wins in international songwriting competitions (John Lennon, UNISONG, USA, ISC), and in festivals (Sierra Songwriters, Telluride, Rocky Mountain Folks), Greg’s music can be heard on national TV, on national radio, and in award-winning films. He has also shared the stage with musical greats such as Rosanne Cash and John Hammond.
His previous two albums, “Roam” and “Coney Island”, were both chosen as one of the "Top 12 Independent Albums" of the year by Performing Songwriter magazine. His sophomore album, "Coney Island", was completed with the help of 3 Grammy winners (co-producer, mixing engineer and mastering engineer).
Greg lives in and works out of NYC, and is a regular at places like the legendary Bitter End and the Living Room. He tours across the U.S. either solo or with his band.
"Greg Tannen is someone worth listening to now and someone we'll all probably be listening to soon" (Performing Songwriter Magazine)
