Nick Charles from RHYTHM MAGAZINE wrote about Greg in an article in 2008 : “ Greg Bryce is the great guitarist and singer songwriter from one of Australia’s most popular acoustic festival bands, Jigzag...wonderfully eclectic, virtuosic, energetic and thought provoking.....a role model for guitarists“
Greg specializes in reading his audience/demographic and playing accordingly. If the majority are dancing he will take the set in that direction or if they are singing along he will encourage the atmosphere and take requests as well as play the many popular songs that people know and love. If people are dining and want to hear gentle background music then he will oblige. Songs range all the way from the classics to more recent artists like Ed Shearen, Maroon 5, Avicii, LMFAO, Black-Eyed Peas, Snow Patrol and Mumford and Sons.
He utilises acoustic guitar and voice with a stompboard through a bass graphic which is very organic and danceable without having to use backing tracks. He also is deft with the Loop Station pedal which allows him to record chord patterns in real time and play guitar solos over the top.
