Greg Beattie has been writing songs since age 12, when he got his first guitar, a $25 Sears Silvertone. During his college years, he played in coffee houses in Stockton, California.

Greg's song Ready to Fly has been covered by several other performers, featured in several compilations, and played at the opening ceremonies of the world figure skating championships.
