Greg Lyons was born in Newcastle in the north-east of England to rather nomadic parents who arranged that he started roaming the planet at a very early age. By the time he left school he had lived in 4 separate locations in England, in India and finally in central Scotland where he developed his fascination with music and started his career playing bass in bands of various styles in the late 70s.

He moved to Hamburg at the age of 19 and became a hard-gigging bassist in bands playing the club scene, but soon became dissatisfied with his musical horizons and his determination to master the saxophone led him to enroll himself into Berklee College of Music (Boston USA) on that instrument where he spent a couple of years immersed in the stream of jazz education.
