Baseball Gregg is a pop duo from Stockton (California) by way of Italy.
Founders Luca Lovisetto and Samuel Regan met in Bologna, the former a native of the city and the latter a math student studying abroad. Their first songs took shape in a small rented room at the beginning of Via Mazzini and were recorded in a flurry of late spiring nights. Sam - after spending a year in Bologna - then returned to America at the end of march: Luca dropped him off at the airport, keeping a handful full of songs to remember their friendship.
These songs would eventually become the duo’s self titled EP, Baseball Gregg. In the summer of 2015, the two friends met again, this time in California. They spent the afternoons of July and August closed in the childhood bedroom of Sam to write and record, and in a month's time they had finished their debut album, Vacation.
After publishing a tiny experimental pop extravaganza titled "Ciao for Now", throughout 2017 and 2018 the duo tirelessly worked on "Sleep", their second LP, which was finally published last summer via La Barberia Records and Z Tapes, anticipated by the singles “Gemini”, “Yo Tengo” and “Welcome the Night".
