I fell in love with music, and the structure of compositional thinking, in grade school while also learning the clarinet, guitar, trombone, and drums. My parents would record me singing and reading into a small tape recorder at age 3 which ignited my love of recording. I'd create my own 'multi-tracking' of voices between two tape decks facing each other thenrecording a capella versions of radio hits. Making mixtapes for friends replete with unique artwork was a way of life and a way to communicate.
This has lead to a life of DIY music-making from songwriting to engineering, tracking, mixing & mastering, designing album art, pressing & distribution, running my own record label, storyboarding, shooting, & editing music videos. I've had the pleasure of working with and learning from the most exciting audio engineers of the times including Steve Albini, Joel Hamilton, J. Robbins, John Vanderslice, Jacob Winick,Alan Douches, Eric Ambel, Gene Paul.
My sweet spot lives around story-telling & communication, the balance between people with music, products, & technology.

‘impressive -- accomplished indie pop that touches on a wide spectrum of sounds. Hoy is the brainchild, somewhat predictably, of Greg Hoy of Last Town Chorus and Yearbook fame. Hoy is responsible for all of the instrumentation on his solo debut, as well as the recording itself. The results are impressive -- accomplished indie pop that touches on a wide spectrum of sounds and moods.’ — Splendid Ezine
