Portfolio

 

Greg has a wide selection of music on which has written, recorded or performed. This hand-picked portfolio represents some of his best work as both a musician and an audio engineer. Please feel free to contact Greg for a complete portfolio.


"Falling" was written by Greg while he served as the group's lead vocalist and guitar player for a semester long project. In addition to being the writer, Greg also served as vocalist, guitarist, and co-engineer. Additionally, his mix was used in the final release for the song.


Victorian Sky reached out to record "Bookmarks" at Greg's self-constructed project studio in Arcadia, CA. Greg also served as mixing engineer on this track.


Out of eight mixes that Greg crafted for Stevie Rae Stephens' second album, Burn, "I've Had Better" was her personal favorite. Not only does this track demonstrate Greg's skills as a mixing engineer, but also as session acoustic guitar player, having remotely recorded the acoustic guitar for this track.

Testimonials

 
When I saw that Greg Hanson was leading the sound crew, I was very pleased... Greg and his crew were attentive to every detail of our mix needs on stage... Greg demonstrated his knowledge and skill by simultaneously mixing the room and stage, all while monitoring a stereo feed out to a portable recording unit. The audio feed to the portable was so good, that we use it on our band website for samples of our product. I would not hesitate to hire him and any crew that he would lead for our future sound needs...
— John Nava, Founder Latin Jazz Collective
On the few occasions that I’ve worked with Greg Hanson, he’s been nothing but the consummate professional. I’d recommend him to anyone. He’s a quick learner, fast on his feet, and great at problem solving on the fly. His attitude is always positive, and he’d be a welcome addition to any team or company.
— Gabe Kubanda, Owner/Touring Artist Epic Proportions Tour
Gregory Hanson quickly became an integral part of my creative process when it came to the production of my two albums in the last two years. He has played acoustic and electric guitar on the majority of my professional music, engineered multiple sessions with me and for me, and recently spent his precious time mixing my final portfolio for my Master’s program. Among his many qualities, including his incredible musicianship and personal relation skills, I would say that his impeccable work ethic shines the most in my eyes. Gregory holds himself to the highest standards with ease and grace in every environment he encounters, making phrases like “we’re only human” seem conditional. He is hardworking, efficient, dedicated, compassionate, selfless, honest, understanding, talented, and hilarious on a bad day! I am fortunate, appreciative, and satisfied with everything he works on for me and would recommend his unfaltering skill sets to anyone.
— Stevie Rae Stephens, MM
“My ensemble and I have had the privilege and pleasure of working with Gregory Wayne Hanson Jr. twice a week as a bandleader for the past summer and I can state unequivocally that he is one of the most talented and professional individuals I have ever worked with in any field and anyone who is fortunate enough to have him on their team will do better work because of it. Also, there are some really great photos of him as a teenager in his Facebook feed. Five stars and two thumbs up.

— Michael Kammers (MK Groove Orchestra), 2015
Greg Hanson was so much more than my recording engineer. He was my springboard, my consultant, an innovative musician to work with, and a patient educator in all things technical and musical. His creativity, dedication and artistry brought about the realization of my wildest dreams with his talented work on my debut album as a guitarist, bassist, percussionist, sound engineer and producer. It was truly an honor to work with him and I hope we will work together again in the future!
— Emily "Mio" Bischoff, 2015
