From Wikipedia about Gregory Page 

Gregory Page is an American and Irish singer, songwriter, guitarist, cabaret artist, record producer and filmmaker. He was born in London, England on Easter Sunday in 1963. His Armenian and Irish parents met while they were on tour with their bands en route to the Middle East. His Irish Mother was the lead singer in the all-girl group “The Beat-Chics”, who opened four concerts for The Beatles in Spain, August 1965. According to an interview with KGTV reporter Phil Konstantin, Gregory showed little interest in academic or business studies as a boy. However, he was always fascinated listening to 78 rpm records on his grandfather’s phonograph. Upon arriving in the United States, he began a series of odd jobs, including as a cab driver and cook. He also began tirelessly writing and recording his own brand of music. It is easy to observe that the voice and music of Al Bowlly had a definite effect on Page’s career.

According to Page: “The tightrope my music teeters upon is the struggle between tradition & progress, history & fantasy. I am the songbird & the worm.”
