Gregory Hyde is a Chicago-based Singer/Songwriter who crafts inventive, intelligent, bombastic songs - often with a menacing edge. His tunes are riddled with nuances of slick pop hits, blues, classic rock, and a Southern sensibility that creeps in from his formative years living on the outskirts of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Hyde has toured the U.S., performed live on national radio, had his songs placed in award-winning films, documentaries, & shows, sold over 7,000 copies of his independently produced albums, garnered a Billboard Music World Songwriting Competition award for the Rock category, and still plays upwards of 200 solo acoustic shows and private events a year.
He's received comparisons to a broad array of artists such as Foo Fighters, Jeff Buckley, The Eagles, and Weezer.
Gregory has toured with and shared the stage as an opening artist for such noteable performers as Jim Gaffigan, 10,000 Maniacs, Sister Hazel, Gin Blossoms, Los Lonely Boys, Toad the Wet Sprocket, The Smithereens, The Jayhawks, Edwin McCain, Tesla, Guster, American Idol winner Lee DeWyze, Air Supply, Blood Sweat & Tears, Bo Bice, and many others at venues like The House of Blues, as well as the historic Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN. He was also recently given the honor of singing the national anthem for The Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Stadium.
The first entry in his new multi-EP project, "The Bellevue Sessions, Vol. 01" was just released to strong critic and fan reviews.
“Hyde seamlessly leaps across genres and effortlessly blends classic and modern covers with originals that hold their ground among chart-topping hits.” - Chicago Sun-Times
“First-class pop rock centered on accessible song arrangement and big choruses …seasoned songwriting and near-perfect melodic rock primed for the masses”. - VOX Magazine
