about

Greg Davis is a musician based in Chicago. As an undergraduate at DePaul University in Chicago, he studied classical and jazz guitar alongside composition and jazz studies. Davis is well known for forming a musical combination of acoustic instruments and electronic processing which later became branded as laptop-folk. But his field of work constantly grew and included drone elements, harmonic song writing and sound/noise orientated works and often crosses the boarders of contemporary and popular music. This lead to several releases on labels like carpark, kranky, ache and many more and to a vast amont of concerts and tours played during the last years. In 1997, he started his own label, Autumn Records, which releases a broad catalogue of fieldrecordings as part of the "Leaves series".
