Gus MacGregor is a contemporary singer songwriter, and gigging musician, performing classic covers including Bowie, Beatles, Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Paul Simon, Dylan, Crowded House and many more. His own songs find touching and humorous observations in equal amounts. Story-telling lyrics, are complimented by roots guitar and voice styles.
Gus was born and grew up in the north west of England, then for ten years went on to play the lead role in the west-end musical Buddy, for which he was nominated for an Olivier Award. He spent seven years living in Bern, Switzerland, during which time he made a splash on National Swiss radio with his first single Lifeline. That and subsequent songs continue to receive regular airplay in Switzerland, and several songs have been used in high profile Swiss TV ad campaigns.
His down-to-earth presentation means it is not unusual to see teenage goths, fashionable 30-somethings and retired couples mixed together at his concerts.
In 2015 Gus moved to Shoreham-by-sea, England, where he lives with his wife and his two boys. Gus works in a local primary school, where he shares his passion for music, art, nature and creativity.
