Maryland native Greg Friia was always convinced he was living on the wrong coast. And he was right.......sort of. What he thought was Los Angeles calling, turned out to be somewhere in the middle........Nashville, TN! Greg's passion and rich talent for songwriting led him there in 2001 and he hasn't looked back. "It was a night at The Bluebird Cafe' with D. Vincent Williams that put everything in perspective. I knew I had to be here", says Greg, and he has taken advantage of every moment since. Greg has had songs recorded by Bonnie Tyler, Andy Griggs, Richie McDonald, Lainey Wilson, LoCASH, Eric Paslay, Brady Seals, & earned his first Top 5 song on the Billboard Dance Chart for the song "Body Needs" recorded by Consuelo Costin.
He has an impressive list of collaborators including, Kelsea Ballerini, Lainey Wilson, Brett Eldredge, Jimmie Allen, Eric Paslay, Casey Beathard, Cyndi Thomson, Rory Bourke, Greg Barnhill, Danielle Peck, Jimmy Nichols, Wood Newton, Mark Bright, Marc Beeson, Dean Sams, Jason Scheff, Bill Champlin, Felix Cavaliere, Vince Melamed, Jimmy Olander, Robbie Nevil, Kevin Savigar, Oliver Leiber, Derry Grehan and more. He is a proud member of The Recording Academy and the President of the Starbucks sponsored show "Songwriters Singing For Coffee.
