Toronto-native Greg Adams majored in marketing communications at Montreal’s Loyola School, singing folk music around the region. He became an editor for Having VERY GOOD NEWS and, after purchasing his demonstration around, agreed upon with A&M. The label, nevertheless, released only 1 single, “Consider the street” (1972). More than another five years, Adams composed music, acted, and produced a songwriting relationship with Eric Robertson (which spawned Roger Whittaker’s “River Female”). In 1977, Greg Adams agreed upon with Attic Information; the label released his self-titled debut record the following calendar year.
