Greg Tressel is this week's guest.
Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Greg was exposed to wide range of musical styles, from psychedelic rock and blues, to the Bakersfield country sounds of central California. Starting bands as a teenager, and as a young man moving to Nashville with a songwriting -publishing contract with the Paramount Music Group, he continued to write and play his music.
Through the years, Greg moved into the management and promotion part of the music business, working with such artists as John Hiatt, Joe Bonamassa, and B.B. King. He now lives in southern Oregon.
Songwriting has always been his first love, and in the past few years Greg has released three diverse original albums of new music: “The Hard Way,” “Ankle Deep in Love,” and his current “Half Way There,” which features the single and video “Keep Facing the Sunshine.” It's a very upbeat song for our times.
