Greg Lui is one of the most versatile and sought-after session musicians in Hong Kong’s pop music industry. His main instruments are piano and keyboards, but also doubles on woodwinds (saxophones, flute and clarinet).
Born in Hong Kong, Greg began studying classical piano and violin at a young age. Upon finishing elementary school, Greg moved to Vancouver, Canada where he was exposed to jazz. Greg went on to study jazz improvisation under the late great jazz pianist Bob Murphy, and frequently attended jam sessions hosted by some of the finest musicians in town.
After graduating from the University of British Columbia (with a Master’s degree in Engineering), Greg started performing professionally and became increasingly involved in the Asian entertainment scene in Vancouver. Greg was eventually taken under the wing by Cantopop’s legendary music director Tony Arevalo Jr. and performed regularly in Vancouver’s major pop concerts under his guidance.
In early 2013, Greg moved back to Hong Kong when he was invited by Hong Kong’s top music director Andrew Tuason to become a regular member of his band. Greg has since been regularly performing live with many of Asia’s biggest stars, and is active in studio recording, music production and song arrangement works.
