A native of Maryland, Gregson has been writing music and experimenting with art his entire life. He was
introduced to music and the performing arts by his mother at a young age. His mother, having MS had to be
hospitalized when he and his sister were in 4th grade. He was moved to another part of the family with his
sister where he was introduced to drawing and painting.
For many years, he provided the vocals in Baltimore based hard rock bands Alexander and Crucible. He has
played throughout the Mid-Atlantic area.
His vocal style is influenced by a diversity of artists such as Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, Robert Plant and other
crooner style singers with an interest in control over various tones and vibratos.
His music is written on acoustic guitar, one he purchased when he was about 20 years of age and named
"Georgie" after his mother Georgia. Gregson's goal is to bring a fresh perspective, adding instruments that
best fit the mood of the song. He may not use an instrument for its traditional purpose and enjoys using
sounds from other cultures and music, moving into world music at times.
Gregson's lyrics are influenced from his experiences in life, the sea and are introspective as he grows and
considers his life, his spiritual walk and practical journey. Many times while working on a painting, he is also
creating the poetry that will become the lyrics. The songs are promising, encouraging, hopeful.
The CD , "Released" marks his maiden voyage as a solo artist and has been receiving great reviews. His
love for the blend of wood and electric are evident. He is very thankful to his fellow musicians and life long
friends that help him to relay what is in his heart to paper and recording.
Gregson is a seascape artist. His art has been shown in galleries in the Baltimore, MD area. The art on the
front cover of the album "Released" was painted by him and can be viewed in this site's art gallery.
Gregson's choice of medium is acrylic on canvas and his style is greatly influenced by the Hudson
River School of Art painters such as Frederick Edwin Church and
the great seacape artist, Ivan Aivazovsky. His love for detail requires many hours of work and his pallet usua
lly incorporates strong vibrant colors used to simulate the effect of natural light. His subjects are a
combination of the places he has visited and experienced
