Gregory Page (born April 14, 1963) is an American and Irish singer, songwriter, guitarist, cabaret artist, record producer and filmmaker. He was born in London, England on Easter Sunday in 1963. His Armenian and Irish parents met while they were on tour with their bands en route to the Middle East. His Irish Mother was the lead singer in the all-girl group "The Beat-Chics", who opened four concerts for The Beatles in Spain, August 1965. According to an interview with KGTV reporter Phil Konstantin, Gregory showed little interest in academic or business studies as a boy. However, he was always fascinated listening to 78 rpm records on his grandfather's phonograph. Upon arriving in the United States, he began a series of odd jobs, including as a cab driver and cook. He also began tirelessly writing and recording his own brand of music. According to Page: "The tightrope my music teeters upon is the struggle between tradition & progress, history & fantasy. I am the songbird & the worm."
Besides working on his own music, Page has also worked with an array of artists such as Jason Mraz, John Doe, Jewel, Tom Brosseau, Steve Poltz, John C. Reilly and A.J. Croce. According to Jason Mraz: "He’s the real deal, a rare gift." In 1996, John Doe, formerly of the band X, provided lead guitar on and produced his independently released Fare thee Well album. His collaboration and friendship with Croce enticed him to join A.J.'s label Seedling Records and to release his CD, Love Made Me Drunk. In the 1990s, Gregory was a member of The Rugburns.
