Greg has been a successful singer, songwriter, speaker, and humorist for over 20 years. He combines outstanding audience rapport with an irreverent sense of humor, and has a special interest in the relationship of music, laughter, and lifestyle to physical and emotional well-being. Greg's humorous musings on cultural absurdities, as well as his messages of effectiveness, optimism, and service, have garnered him a large international following.

A Kansas City native, Greg has appeared on The Nashville Network (TNN). Nashville also serves as Greg's second home, where this talented singer-songwriter continues to write and record songs that celebrate the passion and humor of life at work and beyond. He has released six CDs since 1992, and his songs have been recorded internationally by other artists.


Greg Tamblyn "Unconditional Love" (The Story of Evy)

Tamblyn left his hometown Kansas City in 1986, stifled by a lack of opportunities. Oh sure, he was playing local bars, and he'd been rated "Best Male Vocalist in Kansas City" by a local newspaper. He'd even sold a couple of songs to a country singer from the Philippines. But the lure of Nashville was too great. Eventually, he landed a writing job for a Nashville song publisher. Along with having some of his songs recorded by country artists, Tamblyn successfully released his own single, "It's Another Joyful Elvis Presley Christmas." It caught the attention of radio stations and reviewers around the country, and was named "Christmas Single of the Year" in Cashbox magazine.

Then the Cayman Islands Hyatt offered him a gig. Remember that pool bar that Gene Hackman sat near in The Firm? The singer in the background could have been Tamblyn. Except by that time, he'd left, burned out by tourists wanting to hear "Margaritaville" for the 896th time. He wanted to sing his own songs.

Then he was asked to play a wellness conference at Duke University Medical Center. With songs such as "The Shootout at the I'm OK, You're Ok Corral," and "My Life is a Beer Commercial," he was a smash hit. The brochure for the conference listed Tamblyn as a member of the seminar's faculty. Where initials such as M.D. and Ph.D. followed the other presenters' names, the listing for Tamblyn was followed by N.C.W., which stands for 'No Credentials Whatsoever'.

Greg Tamblyn

With humorous songs about inner guides named Clyde and environmental slowpokes who think the greenhouse effect means crummy tomatoes, Tamblyn has found a huge audience. In addition to his public concerts, he's played for groups as diverse as the Department of Defense and the American Holistic Medical Association.

Stories from his life and songwriting have been featured in several recent books, including "Stressed Is Desserts Spelled Backwards", by Brian Luke Seaward; "Shelter For The Spirit", by Victoria Moran; and "Art and Soul", by Pam Grout.
