Greg Mathieson, Keyboards

Greg Mathieson was born 2/25/50 in Los Angeles Ca. and has been a native of Southern California his whole life.

From 1971 - 1974 he played a series of club gigs including the Bla Bla Club as a duo with Al Jarreau, the Play Boy Club lounge in Hollywood Ca. for a year and a supper club across the street from A&M Records called the ETC with Maxine Weldon. Greg replaced Edgar Winter in White Trash, cut an album with them, and played the Whiskey a Go Go. Greg was in Al Jarreau's band the night Al got his record deal at the Troubadour club. At the end of 1974 -1976 he traveled with Helen Reddy around the world and from 1976-1978 he traveled with Olivia Newton-John.

In 1978 Greg made a commitment to stop traveling and become a part of the vibrant L.A. studio scene. Not only did he become one of the top keyboard session players but also become one of the top arrangers, including String and Horn arrangements. It was at this time he played and arranged his first hits with Donna Summer, Barbra Streisand, the sound track for Midnight Express and Umberto Tozzi in Europe. In the early 1980's he tried his hand at producing and immediately
had hits with Tony Basil's "Mickey" and Laura Branigan's "Gloria". For the rest of the 80's, while he continued to arrange and produce records, he also made two solo albums. In 1981 he recorded a live album at the Baked Potato with two members of the group Toto, Steve Lukather and Jeff Porcaro, along with Pop's Popwell from the Jazz Crusaders. In 1986 he recorded a studio album on Head First Records featuring Carlos Vega, Michael Landau, Abraham Laboriel and Luis Conte. In the 1990's Greg spent most of his time traveling and producing in Europe. In the last five years Greg has recorded 3 solo albums, traveled with Faith Hill and continues
to arrange, write and produce.
