Bio

Gregg Gorrie started his musical career in Calgary at the age of nine, studying classical piano and music theory through the Royal Conservatory of Music, but by the age of fifteen he had found his true calling: the guitar. With a couple of years of private lessons under his belt, Gregg acquired a roster of his own guitar students and started playing and singing professionally in one-nighter and cabaret bands. He continued to perform throughout the 1970s - 1980s, moving to the Vancouver Lower Mainland in 1978.

In the early 1980s Gregg changed direction and started up a sound and lighting production company, touring for several years as a live sound engineer. In 1987, he accepted a gig at a local college that turned into a 20+ year career teaching live sound, digital audio (ProTools), and various audio/video courses. Simultaneously, he performed as a high tech solo act and freelanced as an audio-for-video editor/mixer. In 2011, Gregg left the college and started up Pistachio Studio, a personal project recording and teaching studio.

These days, in addition to operating Pistachio Studio in Aldergrove, B.C., Gregg hosts a couple of open mic nights (The Heritage Grill, Micky's Pub) and performs as a solo act ("Me, Myself, and I").
