Gregg Foreman is an American musician and DJ born in Philadelphia. Foreman gained recognition originally as the front man of The Delta 72, a band that created a frenetic and honest style channeling post-punk rock sensibilities with 1960s British Invasion R&B. The live gigs of The Delta 72 have been characterized by Gregg's energetic stage performances and James Brown-like moves.
Foreman who had been djing since 1995, also established a career as a popular deejay in his hometown, Philadelphia, and still spins in his resident city, Los Angeles. Foreman's sets span a range from soul music to post-punk, girl group sounds and psychedelic.
He joined Cat Power in 2006, now elevated to musical director. He was also in Pink Mountaintops, founded by Stephen McBean from Black Mountain ; psychedelic, post punk band The Meek, and a part-time member of the slow-burning, psyche rock band The Black Ryder.
Gregg also hosts The Pharmacy, a radio show focusing on the architects of underground music, interviewing artists like Alan Vega of Suicide, Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Genesis P-Orridge from Psychic TV and a pioneer of no wave, Lydia Lunch.
Gregg has one sister Abbe Foreman, a photographer in Philadelphia and mother Vicki Foreman who was a school teacher. He was raised in Valley Forge, coming from a single family which shaped him into the person and artist he is today.
