Greg Pagel

“…an ingenius hybrid of jazz fusion backdrops, experimental electronic innovation and a poprock-informed writing. 5 STARS!“ -- CD

“Greg Pagel is a nut, and I mean that in the best way… The man is off his damned rocker, and proud to be so. And I think it is a very good thing for all of us that he is.” --

Often regarded as Wisconsin's most unusual keyboardist, Greg Pagel has been a professional musician for over 25 years. Having begun playing piano and composing at the age of nine, he went on to receive a Bachelor of Music degree from Lawrence University and a Master of Music Degree from New England Conservatory. In the 1990’s, he was an active performer in the Boston jazz and avant-garde music scene, playing in many clubs, coffeehouses, and concert venues. Since 1999, Greg has been played jazz, rock and classical music with many of the finest musicians in the Midwest.

In addition to being a busy solo artist, Greg is the founder and leader of the electronic music collective Karmadog, a founding member of the Open Interest Jazz Quartet, a frequent collaborator with acclaimed cellist Matt Turner, and a member of the Greg Pagel/Becky Markvart Duo. Recordings of all these can be found in links on the lower-left side of this page, under "LINKS".
