Hi there. My name is Greg Panciera. I’m a music professional based in Chicago, IL. I make my living helping people organize and capture their musical ideas. I also occasionally perform with a few different bands here in town. Like most musicians, I’ve loved music for as long as I can remember and I’m a firm believer that the process of creating and capturing music should be both honest and inspiring.
Every artist is unique and requires a different approach in the studio; I have experience working with artists on a range of levels and have been fortunate enough to work with, as well as learn from, some truly amazing individuals over the years. If you’re a younger artist about to embark on your first studio project, or if you’re an experienced veteran, as long as you’re interested in making honest music, it would be my honor to assist you in whatever capacity that I can. If you’re not sure exactly what you need or whether I’m the right person, please don’t hesitate to give me a call; I’d love to hear about your project, and you can rest assured that if I don’t feel I’m the person you should be talking to, I’ll always say so.
If you’d like to know a bit more about me, here’s a proper bio…
