Looking for jazz that swings?
Looking for a fresh take on the familiar?
Looking for a modern day singer who sounds authentically 1920s and 1930s?
Here I am. Take me home now!
Since 2002, I've been reviving the songs of the Roaring 20s, Great Depression and 1930s Swing Era with my band of swinging, world-toured classic jazz musicians.
"Greg Poppleton's music always hits the spot - so authentic sounding!"
Women's Vintage Radio (USA)
Drawing on influences like Louis Armstrong, Al Bowlly, Annette Hanshaw, Cab Calloway and very early jazz Bing Crosby, I've gained a loyal following with my authentic Jazz Age/Swing Era vocals, my always top-notch swinging 1920s-30s band and my original, high-energy performances.
This is what Lance from San Francisco emailed me after he saw me at an outdoor show one hot, Sydney summer night...
“Damn, I wish I had known you when we had a theatre. We would have called you over to perform with us in a minute! Your great voice, your ability to “sell a song” and your particular energy came across as completely American while sounding Australian! And that trio is an absolute knockout.”
Lance Belville, Writer / Theater Director, San Francisco
I've released 4 albums and two mixes here at Bandcamp that have received over 1 Million YouTube plays.
Who do I sound like?
1. Crocodile Dundee (I am from Australia, afterall)
2. Ol' Gramps Back in the Day
3. The Guy in the Shower
Maybe I'm all these things?
I'll leave that up to you. But I definitely sound 1920s - 1930s without putting on a funny voice or a bogus American accent.
I've appeared in Hollywood movies with Nicole Kidman, John Goodman and Adrien Brody.
I even auditioned twice for the band leader role in the Baz Luhrmann 1920s movie, The Great Gatsby.
“Poppleton captures the essence of the swing years with uncanny accuracy. 5 Stars”
John Gilbert, eJazzNews.com
“The band knows what to do in terms of style.”
Donny Harvey, MuzikReviews.com
“Just TRY not to sway to the music. I dare you!”
