Greg MacPherson (born 1973) is a Canadian singer-songwriter based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. MacPherson performs both solo and with a backing band.[1]

MacPherson's sixth album, Mr. Invitation, was released on March 30, 2010,[2] and was longlisted for the 2010 Polaris Music Prize.

MacPherson co-owns Canadian indie label Disintegration Records. He has previously released albums on G7 Welcoming Committee Records, and more recently Smallman Records. The independent record label play/rec, based in Copenhagen, has released a compilation LP in Europe.
