Greg Loving

Many Folk singers probably think of themselves as some sort of philosopher, but most don’t have the credentials of Greg Loving. The Illinois native teaches philosophy at University of Cincinnati Clermont College when he’s not writing and playing Folks songs both alone and with his duo, No Consolation. Fear not — you don’t have to have your Master’s to enjoy Loving’s music, which is smartly written, clever and insightful, but not academically so, likely thanks to avowed influences like John Prine and Bob Dylan and an evident sense of humor that shines through in his writing.
