Baseball Gregg is a Pop duo from California and 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. 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).
Sam returned to California, where in 2015 the two friends met for a second time. Spending the summer afternoons shut inside Sam's childhood bedroom, the duo wrote and recorded their debut LP, Vacation (2016). After publishing Ciao for Now (2016) and Sleep (2018), their second LP, the band started touring extensively through USA and Europe, appearing at SXSW and Iceland Airwaves.
Every month of 2019 Baseball Gregg released a new song: the project slowly unfolded, one song at a time. These 12 singles have been then compiled into Calendar (2020). Two years later, the duo released Pastimes (2022), an album composed for the first time with the full band all together in one place: 20 tracks distributed over three months in as many EPs and then compiled into their fourth LP, «one of the year’s best albums» (Week In Pop).
