Musician/songwriter and producer Gregory Page was born in London, England to a musical family. He grew up in North London surrounded by family members who performed & recorded Traditonal Irish Music. His Grandfather Dave Page was a master uilleann piper who played in Leo Rowsome's famous piping quartet in the 1930's. Dave Page's Irish dance band "The Siamsa Gael Celidhe Band" made two 78 RPM recordings in the 1930's, some of the earliest recordings of Irish music. One was made in London on the Parlophone label, the other in Dublin on the Columbia
His mother was the lead singer/bass player in the all girl group, The Beat Chicks. In August 1965 they opened twice for The Beatles in Barcelona & Madrid. The concerts were held inside a bullring.
One day both groups sat together watching a bullfight. Young Page sat upon Paul’s knee and right before the bull was finally slaughtered Paul covered Gregory’s eyes with both of his
hands. Gregory's mother is also a well-respected woodwind player (flutist).
Gregory's Uncle Dave Page Jr.(founder of Page Drums custom drum company) knew as a child growing up in Dublin, that when he grew up he would become a drummer. After serving in the Irish Guards he became the original drummer for Tom Jones, appearing on the “Ed Sullivan Show.” He has performed with such artists as Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope and has recorded with Marvin Gaye. He has been the drummer on several movie scores including The Prince and the Showgirl, which featured him accompanying Sir Laurence Olivier & Marilyn Monroe. He can be heard regularly on the soundtrack of Monty Python’s Flying Circus.
As a teenager, Gregory attended Trinity College of Music where he studied classical guitar and composition. At the age of sixteen, Page moved to Southern California where he began tirelessly writing and recording his own brand of music. As the years passed, Page not only worked on his own projects but also began to work with an eclectic array of artists such as Jason Mraz, John Doe,
Jewel ,Tom Brosseau, A.J.Croce, John C. Reilly and others.
At the age of 30, Gregory’s mother informed him that the man he thought was his father was in actuality his stepfather, and though she knew nothing of his real father’s whereabouts she gave him
his name. After a great deal of searching he found that his father, also a gifted musician, was living in Paris, and a reunion was arranged. The concept of “Love Made Me Drunk” came to life during that first visit to Paris.
Gregory Page has earned the love of audiences from Southern California to the Southern Hemisphere (Australia) and throughout Europe. He is greatly respected in the musical community for his rare talent.
