Greg McGarvey is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and visual artist from the Delaware Valley.
Having first performed live in 2001, Greg performs both solo and with a rotating cast of talented friends as Greg McGarvey Band. In addition to his own songs, Greg sometimes performs songs by artists such as The Everly Brothers, The Beatles, Neil Young, R.E.M., and Robyn Hitchcock.
Greg released his first album in 2020. Count The Colors is a tribute to the Bucks County artist Marcella Di Sandro.
Forced offstage during the COVID-19 era, Greg took stock of his past work and found two song cycles (crickets surround and You Don’t Have A Map) which chronicle his coming of age in Bucks County. He is recording this and other work in his home studio in Hopewell, New Jersey.
Greg also releases freeform and instrumental music.
“Long before I ever wrote my first song, I fell in love with improvisation. Whether alone at home or playing with a rock band, I love capturing these unplanned, inspired moments that only happen once. Digital audio editing allows me to also weave in field recordings I make during my travels, resulting in a sort of an audio diary.”
Since 2011, Greg has performed with his friend Righteous Jolly in The Jolly Tinkers and other projects.
Greg is also a prolific photographer. His work has been included in gallery shows such as The Activity Of Form (ArtTimesTwo Gallery, Princeton, New Jersey) and A Few Moments With Marcella (Langhorne Coffee House, Langhorne, Pennsylvania).
