MG (Mike) Greaves is a veteran Musician from Hull in Northern England. He started his career in the mid 70s playing the Working Mens Club circuit in northern England from Tyneside to the Midlands in bands called The Cruisers , a country/rockabilly band & Machine Gun, a high energy pop/RnB outfit.
Mike has played and sung in almost every kind of band imaginable including “Export” a Soul/Funk review with a full horn section. “The Stops” a very aggressive Post punk/New wave band where Mike was the principal songwriter, “The Roustabouts” a lively New Country band where again Mike was the writer.
Mike is probably better known as a songwriter than a performer, having had a number of his songs recorded by other Artists, notably The Housemartins and The Beautiful South.
Lonesome Too is a four piece band with Mike on guitars and veteran Hull Musicians Bri Chapman on Drums, Brian Hisrtine on bass and Andrew Watson on Accordion.
Their style is totally unique, somewhere between the Country Outlaws ( Waylon & Willie etc) and Jim Croce with more than a touch of Rock n Roll thrown in. They Have self released a number of CDs including The King Of Heartache City, Fight of The Century and Diamonds Always Shine.
