Gregory Grene

Gregory Grene is a musician based in New York City, who grew up between Chicago and County Cavan, Ireland. He is the son of classicist David Grene. With his band The Prodigals, he writes and plays a style of music that melds Irish traditional and rock influences, and he has also recorded a solo album, FlipSides (2008), with musicians ranging from John Doyle, former guitarist with Solas, to Tony Cedras, a multi-instrumentalist who has played in Paul Simon's band since the Graceland tour. Grene's music has received critical acclaim over the years, was included in the Rough Guide to Irish Music compilation, and was featured in the soundtrack for Pride and Glory, a movie starring Ed Norton, Colin Farrell, Jon Voight and Noah Emmerich, as well as on television in the ABC show Mercy and the FX series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.[1]

He currently teaches English literature at the upper school of Hunter College High School. He also previously worked as Director of Music for the New York advertising agency Draftfcb, and in that capacity recorded tracks ranging from reggae in Kingston to the Beatles tracks and symphonic music in Abbey Road, and has spoken on Shoot and Billboard music industry panels in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Prior to his musical work, Grene worked as an actor, appearing in both regional and Broadway theater, and in independent film.[2][3]
