ABOUT GREG TROOPER
It’s not surprising to learn that artists from Steve Earle to Billy Bragg are Greg Trooper fans. Trooper, A New Jersey native now based in Brooklyn, excels at character studies, painting wonderful portraits of people living through good times and bad times. His matter-of-fact delivery – as both a singer and a songwriter – bring a sense of realism to the tales that he tells. His music lives at the intersection of Memphis soul, Greenwich Village folk and Texas troubadour. As a live performer he is articulate, quick-witted, extremely musical, sassy and outrageous, compassionate and kind.

His songs have been recorded by numerous artists including: Vince Gill, Steve Earle, Billy Bragg, Robert Earl Keen, Maura O’Connell, Lucy Kaplansky, Tom Russell and Walt and Tina Wilkins. On previous albums he’s had help with harmony vocals by the likes of Emmylou Harris and Rosanne Cash.
