Lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist Gregory Hoskins always seemed to be surrounded by music. He was only in the first grade when he started learning to play the guitar while other children were happy simply expanding their vocabulary and finding out who could cross the monkey bars without falling. In his teens, in 1979, Hoskins formed his first band. In his early twenties, he put together the group known as Gregory Hoskins & the Stick People. Other members were singer Lynn Simmons, bassist Mike Fabello, saxophonist Colleen Allen, drummer Michael Spencer-Arscott, and singer and keyboardist George Civello.
