Greg Loiacono
Greg Loiacono
Greg Loiacono is a musician based out of Marin County, California. He is a founding member of the seminal California rock band, The Mother Hips. Greg plays guitar, sings and writes songs for The Hips, Sensations ( his solo project that features a rotating cast of California's elite bassists and drummers including Scott Thunes, Paul Hoaglin, Reed Mathis, Todd Roper and David Brogan) and Ball Point Birds (an acoustic duo) that he created with his musical brother, Tim Bluhm.
When Greg is not on the road, recording or sitting in with friends around town, he brings a customized, music group into Bay Area treatment Centers to help addicts recover from addiction and psychological disorders.

"Victoria George has the enviable skill of sounding effortless at everything she does, be it country, rock or breezy pop music...this North Bay native simply knows her way around a good tune." Irish Greg- KFOG

Yes, California Country is a thing. It’s a beautiful thing, actually. It’s the gift Victoria George gives her growing legion of fans everyday, and it’s worth knowing intimately.

California Country happens when places like Northern California’s Marin County and country music meccas like Nashville collide. The result in Victoria George’s case is rather fascinating — a sound that’s part San Francisco folk, part Nashville/bluegrass twang, all heart and revelations and smarty-pants yarn-spinnin’. .Combining the country-flavored vocals of the Dixie Chicks with the tone of Alison Krauss and the roots of Bonnie Raitt, at the end of the day Victoria George has her own sound.

Victoria is by now a confident mid-career singer-songwriter who knows what and who she is. She comes from a family of artists and herself has a background in theater. And, well, she’s lovely. So it’s not all that surprising she commands a stage with the zeal of an Allison Krauss or Bonnie Raitt, artists who check their pretention at the door and prefer honest-to-goodness stories.

Music biz folks have indeed taken notice throughout the years. Victoria has worked in and outside of Nashville’s finest publishing houses and shared bills with the likes of Brandi Carlisle, the Doobie Brothers, Steve Earle, Delta Rae and other industry names that speak for themselves.
