Greg Foat is a London-based keyboardist, composer, bandleader and DJ. He claims his life-long love/hate relationship with the piano began at age 3, when he fell off a piano stool at his aunt's house. He started composing around age 11, and at 15 attended a jazz workshop with Jeff Clyne, Olaf Vas, Trevor Tomkins and Nick Weldon, igniting his obsession with jazz music. He furthered to study jazz at Middlesex University, and then studied for 6 months in Sweden on an Erasmus grant. He played his first professional studio session there at 21, and has been working as a professional musician ever since.'Snake Plant Shuffle' and 'Spider Plant Blues' are inspired by the plants on Greg's bedside tables - which periodically move around the house depending on his mood. The plants provide a good source of oxygen in the room and create a calm soothing atmosphere for Greg's musical projects. Together the tracks feature live drum kits by Ayo Salawu, Fender Rhodes, and a plethora of vintage synthesizers.'Snake Plant Shuffle' has had radio plays in Germany, Poland and Canada, as well as being heavily featured in Amazon Music's Jazz playlists, including 'Fresh Jazz', 'Coffee Shop Jazz' and 'Cafe Jazz'. Both tracks are featured in Apple Music' 'Jazz Scene: UK' and 'New Latitudes' playlists.Tracklisting:A. Spider Plant Blues (5:10)B. Snake Plant Shuffle (2:06)
