Greg Volker is a Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter/ who made a name for himself while living in the San Francisco Bay Area where he recorded six albums with bands Deer Crossing, Dirt Road, and Gunpowder. Since moving back to Minneapolis he formed his new band, The River, in 2022 with young talented musicians who have invigorated his music with a new energy.

Volker’s music traverses a musical landscape filled with long, thick shadows and flashes of blinding light.Sometimes soft and gentle and at other times jagged and raw, Volker’s music inspires comparisons to the honest and unruly magic of Neil Young and the sonic propulsion of My Morning Jacket. Their sound shares a deep reverence and kinship with alt-country bands of the 90s including The Jayhawks and Son Volt. At its core, American roots music remains the singular force uniting and guiding Volker’s vision with influences like Gillian Welch and Steve Earle.
