Greg Drummond has made an engaging impression as a fresh face within the Vancouver music scene. His music has been described as well crafted, catchy melodies that are reminiscent of the sounds heard throughout the Canadian Maritimes. His lyrics are soulful, relatable and resonate deeply with his audience.

At 28, Greg has written music throughout Canada, Northern USA and Alaska. He has performed sold-out shows, from coffee houses to venues holding over 1,000 people, and will be playing at the Snoring Sasquatch on Nov. 19.

The title track of his debut album illustrates leaving behind a corporate lifestyle to pursue his passion for music and travel.

A tragic fire almost cost Drummond months of hard work in May 2011, when the studio caught fire just before completion of his album. Studio owner Claude Laforest risked his life and without hesitation saved Drummond’s recordings.

“The tracks must have been too hot and caught the place on fire,” said Laforest.

Drummond is currently supporting the release of his album, Walking Man, with Canadian tour dates.

“I don’t write music just for a song,” he said. “What I love about music is seeing the people inspired.”
