The Very Thought Of Yesteryear: Gregory Page joins In The Pines

Born in London in 1963 and coming of age in the United States in the late 1970s, Gregory Page, against all generational odds, is an old-school style crooner with a tender fascination for the music of the 1930s. With bittersweet lyrics and melodies drenched in nostalgia, Page’s songs pay loving homage to his musical heroes: dance hall favourites and jazz legends like Cole Porter and Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, Harold Arlen and Al Bowlly.

He joined me on Pines recently to chat about his Australian tour, play some live music and soak the program in sepia. Stream away.

Gregory Page’s latest album is called My True Love and you can pick it up here.
