Instrument: Vocalist
Born: October 19, 1985

Greg Poppleton caught the jazz bug at age three seeing Louis Armstrong on TV. To his parent’s despair he never had any interest in contemporary popular music. He's totally uninfluenced by it.

His passion is jazz and swing from the 1920s and 1930s. He's self-taught. He has his own style, unschooled and uncompromised by the jazz academy.

‘They Didn’t Believe Me’ from the latest album ‘Back In Your Own Backyard’ has just been chosen for the soundtrack of a new German-Israeli movie co-production, The Cake Maker. Greg has more than 850,000 views on YouTube, huge for a jazz independent.
