Gregg Holsey began his musical career playing the bass guitar while in his early teens. Growing up in the rich musical environment of Detroit. Michigan put Gregg on the fast track to becoming a successful bassist. Before he turned eighteen he had developed the skills and talent to perform with many of Detroit’s top recording artists.
