Born and raised only miles from New York City, Greg grew up in a musical household. The son of legendary musician Bob Mayo (of Peter Frampton, Hall and Oates, Foreigner and others), he’s had it in his blood. Since studying jazz and studio composition at The Hartt School of Music and The Conservatory of Music at SUNY Purchase, he has been living and working in the New York music scene for the better part of 10 years.
In addition to producing for and performing in countless projects scattered across the musical spectrum, Greg leads an old school soul band called ‘The Greg Mayo Band’ singing lead and playing piano. He also plays guitar and sings in ‘Brooklyn Sugar Company’, a rock and roll band based in New York.
Over the years, Greg has honed his skills on piano, guitar, bass, drums and vocals, playing in many groups. Recently he served as a musical accompanist for America’s Got Talent and The X-Factor UK, as well as produced and released records with Brooklyn Sugar Company, ItsTheReal, and many others. He is currently in and out of the studio producing and mixing a new mixtape for ItsTheReal and a debut EP for soul singer Bski. He also just kicked off his 9th year of teaching at the Lagond School of Music in Elmsford, NY.
