“The Reincarnation of Lou Gehrig,” with Guests Author Cathy Byrd and Young Baseball Player with Memories of a Past Life as Lou Gehrig, Christian Haupt, and Musical Guest Greg McFall, Bassist, Composer and Songwriter, on The LIFE CHANGES Show.
As a bassist, Greg’s journey began in San Jose, where he grew up and attended SJSU, getting a B.A. in jazz bass performance. He began playing gigs around the Bay Area with pianist Alan Chang (MD, pianist for Michael Buble), vocalist Faye Carol, and veteran reedsman Don Pender. After moving to Alan’s futon near USC in 2000, they recorded their first album with Tom Jackson and Brad Ranola, forming a band called Your Future Lovers, which has recorded with Grammy-winning producer J.J. Blair (Johnny Cash, Ryan Adams, Kelly Clarkson) and Grammy-winning engineer Brian Warwick (Ludacris, Weird Al Yankovic, Michael Buble). Greg started meeting and playing with other great LA musicians and developed his skills as a sideman, playing bass and singing backup in many groups and genres. In 2014, Greg graduated with an M.M. in composition from CSULA, and has been composing music for commercials and TV as well.
Recent highlights include performances with Bridget Everett (Trainwreck, Comedy Central, Inside Amy Schumer) for her sold out shows at the El Rey Theatre and Largo, Curtis Peoples (Pierce the Veil) for his sold out Coffee Shop Arena Rock nights at Hotel Cafe, synth-pop band Cataline, and folk violinist and singer-songwriter Chris Murphy. He also wrote and produced the musical finale of the web series Wait Crimes, recently selected for two film festivals.
