Greg Coulson is an English Blues and Jazz singer/songwriter, and multi instrumentalist. He is also a session musician and producer, and has played for artists and bands such as Burt Bacharach, Spiritualized, Morcheeba, The Blockheads, The Selecter, Dani Wilde, King Pleasure, Lilly Moore, Tom Grennan, Sway and Big Daddy Wilson.

In 2018, he released his critically acclaimed debut album, “What’s New?” coinciding with appearances at festivals such as, HRH Blues, Colne R&B fest, Top Secret Blues and The Great British Blues and Rock Festival. Greg’s heart lies firmly within songwriting and draws inspiration from his heroes, Steely Dan, Randy Newman, Little Feat, Ray Charles, Booker T and Dr John.

Greg spent the duration of 2023 on tour with Spiritualized supporting Queens of the Stone age on their North American tour. Throughout 2024, Greg will be appearing at a selection of high profile festivals and venues across the UK to support his Second Album that will be released later in the year.

“Gregory Coulson has the homegrown R&B thing down – see jiving opener 10/10, the cocksure Sick Note and the lift-off chorus of Girls, all three songs as fresh as the genre has sounded in years” – Classic Rock
