Greg Davis is an American electronic musician who has recorded albums drawing from a wide variety of sources, including guitar, field recording, various world / ethnic / traditional instruments, percussion, and voice, all delicately processed through digital manipulation. After years of experience in hip-hop groups, jazz combos, free improvisation, and experimental composition, Greg moved toward the world of computer-based music in 1997.[1] At Depaul University in Chicago, Greg studied classical & jazz guitar alongside composition and jazz studies.[2] In 1997, he started his own label, Autumn Records, to release his own music and the music of others. Greg moved to Boston in 1999 to pursue a master's degree in composition (which he received in June 2001) while independently immersing himself in the study of electronic music. Since 2001, Greg has played shows all around the world and released records on a number of different labels. He has collaborated with Keith Fullerton Whitman, Ben Vida, Sebastien Roux, Chris Weisman, Steven Hess, Jeph Jerman, Akron/Family, Toby Aronson (as Harmonizer), and Zach Wallace (as Sun Circle).

Greg left the city of Chicago for Burlington, Vermont in December 2004, where he has been organizing experimental and creative music events.

Greg has played live shows around the world with Hrvatski / Keith Fullerton Whitman, The Flying Luttenbachers, Blectum From Blechdom, Loscil, Animal Collective, Ratatat, Jan Jelinek, Sebastien Roux, Leafcutter John, Colleen, Avey Tare & Kria Brekkan, No-Neck Blues Band, The Books, Beach House, Mountains, Bird Show, Fog, Viking Moses, Ariel Pink, Boom Bip, and many more.

Greg has released albums on labels such as Kranky, Ekhein, Room40, Install, Home Normal, Digitalis, Carpark Records, as well on his own Autumn Records.[3]
