GREG FLEMING


Auckland singer/songwriter Greg Fleming’s first show was opening up for legendary Texas songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Since then he's built up a reputation as a razor sharp songwriter - adept in a wide range of styles and settings. Greg’s now working with The Working Poor one of Australasia's finest, forward-thinking rock bands. Their most recent album Stranger In My Own Hometown follows on from the highly acclaimed 2014 album Forget the Past – both of which enjoyed 4 star reviews both at home and internationally.

This album touches the head and heart.
— Graham Reid, Elsewhere. **** star review for Stranger , August 2015
Fleming knows how to set up a scene and get his little vignettes across within the length of a typical pop song (perhaps he could teach Dylan a thing or two…)
— Marty Duda, 13th Floor
Not all listeners like those masculine hard-edged whiskey-soaked voices like Tom Waits, Jon Dee Graham, Otis Gibbs or even John Haitt. But, Greg seems to have found a balanced mother-lode that straddles the mineral from the grasslands.
— John Apice, No Depression
