Gregg Karukas

One of urban contemporary jazz’s most versatile and acclaimed artists over the past 25 years, keyboardist/composer Gregg Karukas is now a Grammy Award winner for producing, engineering, co-writing and arranging Omar Akram’s Echoes of Love, which won Best New Age Album at the 55th Grammy Awards in February 2013.

As a solo artist, Gregg's 11 CDs have garnered consistently solid reviews for his signature piano touch, pristine production, and melodies that are both soulful and sophisticated. Always in demand as a musical director and keyboardist, Gregg has received multiple Best Keyboardist nominations at the Oasis and National Smooth Jazz Awards. His best-known singles, “Girl in the Red Dress” (#4) “Nightshift” (#1), and Jessy J.'s #1 hit “Tropical Rain” showcase Gregg's funky, melodic compositional style familiar to his fans.
