BioGreg MacPherson was born 30 years ago in the Sydney City Hospital, half a kilometer from the most polluted body of water in North America, and half an hour walk from his family home at CFS Sydney. He grew up on radar bases all over Canada; a base-brat in the shadow of the cold war, and a student of regional diversity and disparity. He was raised in front of a television, rode a unicycle to high school, paid his rent at times by winning disco contests, dug graves in a cemetery for 6 years, and got a degree in Labour History in the mid-nineties. Along the way MacPherson learned how to work hard and he hasn't looked back. Multiple day jobs and a relentless touring schedule has seen Greg a janitor playing his music for punk rockers in Washington D.C. and a factory worker playing for 15,000 people on a folk festival stage in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The ordinary becomes important.
