In 5th grade, Greg Walton begged his parents to buy him a guitar so he could imitate the art of musical legends — Elton John, The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac. He was a quick study, but soon found that his real passion for music came from being a part of his own parish community. His participation in the youth choir and his deep reflection on the Bible prompted his interest in music evangelization and a stronger commitment to his Catholic beliefs. After his attendance at a weekend retreat, he wrote his first song, "A New Day's Gonna Shine," (when he was just 15 years old) and realized that he was being called to use his gifts as a means of passionately serving God and neighbor.

Greg has had incredible opportunities since that first decision to use his gift and passion of music to serve. His ministry has taken him all over the United States, Canada, Europe and Africa. He has performed at hundreds of youth rallies and Lifeteen events, dozens of festivals and evangelical events, and some of the world’s largest gatherings — World Youth Day, Creation Festival, NCYC and Kingdom Bound. Through his work as a solo artist and former band member of Polarboy, he has shared the stage with celebrated artists Matt Maher, Sarah Hart, Ceili Rain, Newsboys and others. His music is distributed by OCP, iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby and Saint Mary’s Press.

In addition to his commitment to service through music, Greg also believes deeply that Christian faith acts itself out in love, so he partners with the relief and development efforts of Catholic Relief Services. "Tune of Ignorance", one of his most well-known works, is a resource for CRS' FoodFast, and a central theme in Greg's Catholic Social Teaching program, "Ignorance Is Not Bliss." He continues to write liturgical and extra-liturgical music. He resides in Spring Hill, TN with his wife, Mary. Together, they do their best to keep up with their 5 kids. In addition to composing, Greg works as the Electronic Evangelization Coordinator for St. Philip Catholic Church in Franklin, TN and plays weekly at Catholic Church of the Nativity in Thompson's Station.
