Greg Farnese is modern-day throwback vocalist, a crooner, if you will. He reignites the treasured and timeless classics from The Great American Songbook in his live performances and blends them with his unique interpretations of his modern -day favorites.
A South Jersey native, Greg began his career in acting, and moved to Hollywood, California where he worked in theater, television and in films. Missing his roots, he ultimately moved back to the East Coast, where he started his own production company producing content for television, commercials, web content and documentaries. It was here in New Jersey, that his love of jazz and his vocal abilities took root and he began singing professionally. His soulful tone and inspired phrasing, as well as his reputation as a consummate performer, have produced a wide fan base of musicians and music lovers.
In 2017 Greg released his very first EP titled Set In Motion which was picked up by the prestigious label Victor Records With a mix of contemporary covers (RADIOHEAD, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS) to classic standards (COLE PORTER, RODGERS/HART) Set in Motion has been admired by a cross section of listeners. Set in Motion is available on iTunes, Cd Baby, Amazon and here on this site.
