Gregg Dreise is a gifted artist, storyteller and musician, and he features the didgeridoo and guitar in his high energy performances. He uses music and laughter to take audiences on a story telling journey – that maybe… just maybe… might sneak in a lesson or two. Gregg is a touring author/musician/entertainer who continually performs in schools, libraries, community events and even the Sydney Opera House with his didgeridoo and guitar. He always aims to educate an audience filled with smiles.
Gregg is a guest presenter on ABC’s Play School and on Mugu Kids on NITV. He designed the Indigenous Jersey for the QLD Maroons 2019, plus the QLD Murris all Indigenous NRL team jersey. He created all of the Aboriginal Art in the sets of the reality TV show I’m A Celebrity – Get Me Outta Here Australia. As a descendant of the Kamilaroi and Euahlayi people of south-west Queensland and north-west New South Wales his storytelling addresses self-image, friendship, kindness, bullying and indigenous culture.
The latest books he wrote and illustrated include Common Wealth a Slam Poetry Persuasive about change and unity, plus Hello and Welcome a companion to My Culture and Me, and the newest of his Bird series Cunning Crow will soon have Awesome Emu following. There are also two board books for young readers coming Today’s Sun and Where’s My Baby?
