    This is the second time I've worked with Greg on one of my songs and once again, he took my song to a whole new and better level! He has great instincts as a producer/musician/mixer etc. My Kangaroo Song literally jumped out of the speakers! (pun intended:)

Interview with Greg Johnson

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  15. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
