Guitarist and composer Greg Block was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta and mentored on guitar by Brian Griffiths of The Big 3. Greg has released his book of spells titled Book 1, a work of over 100 original compositions for solo guitar with beautiful ink work by Lauren Plante

The music of Greg Block is diverse and ranges anywhere from complex classical arrangements to meditative soundscapes; from sea-folk shanties to rock and roll. Greg takes much inspiration from literature, especially Tolkien’s High Fantasy and classic Russian literature like author Leo Tolstoy

Well suited to dance and movement arts, yoga, restorative healing, and meditative focus, Greg’s compositions can be brought to life on a range of instruments and are bound to inspire and please both audience and performer.

Greg is the founder of Forest Glimpse Publishing Company™

Baby Jay is rock n’ roll husband and wife duo Greg and Jocelyne Block
