Introducing the Greg Poppleton Band
Greg Poppleton caught the jazz bug at age three seeing Louis Armstrong on TV. To his parent’s despair he never had any interest in contemporary popular music. He's totally uninfluenced by it.
His passion is jazz and swing from the 1920s and 1930s. He's self-taught. He has his own style, unschooled and uncompromised by the jazz academy.
‘They Didn’t Believe Me’ from the latest album ‘Back In Your Own Backyard’ has just been chosen for the soundtrack of a new German-Israeli movie co-production, The Cake Maker. Greg has more than 850,000 views on YouTube, huge for a jazz independent.
Greg says, "With over 20 years of live jazz performance, my singing style is all his own. U.S and Australian critics have written I 'capture the essence of the Swing Era with uncanny accuracy’. It's the music I've always listened to. That's the way I sing."
Greg does study bel-canto vocal technique. He likes to use his full three octave range improvising in shows of up to five hours. That requires a fit and expressive voice.
Greg Poppleton is versatile and operates in a variety of forms from the popular four piece the whole way up to a ten piece band. They are perfect for functions and events that want to stand out.
