Baseball Gregg is a pop duo from Stockton (California) by way of Italy.
Founders Luca and Sam met in Bologna, the former a native of the city and the latter a math student studying abroad. Here, their first songs took shape and were recorded in a flurry of late spring nights, eventually becoming the duo’s self titled debut EP, Baseball Gregg (2014).
In 2015, the two friends met again, this time in California. They spent the summer 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 legendary Slovakian cassette label Z Tapes. Sleep was premiered on HypeMachine, getting recognition from Rolling Stone among others, helping the duo getting hundreds of thousands streams on Spotify while touring both in Europe & Usa.
While working on their third album, Baseball Gregg released Gifts (2018), a collection of six holidays songs, one written each year from 2013 to 2018.
