Greg Spero is a musician on a mission. A multifariously creative force who’s built an entire ecosystem that empowers self-expression, Spero creates music and tech that embodies limitless possibilities. A Chicago-area native based in Los Angeles, the pianist/keyboardist, producer, arranger, composer, bandleader, YouTube educator, label-owner and internet entrepreneur has devoted a good deal of his time to building vehicles that connect fellow artists with audiences. Familiar to a diverse array of listeners through his collaborations with the pop star Halsey and the funk/fusion Miles Electric Band, Spero has also composed music for film, theater and television, written songs with Rolling Stones bassist Darryl Jones, and co-produced tracks with Ski Beatz. In recent years he’s focused on Spirit Fingers, his powerhouse quartet featuring a cadre of the era’s definitive players, including drummer Mike Mitchell, aka Blaque Dynamite. Spero’s new album, 2022’s The Chicago Experiment, is a collaboration showcasing a brilliant cast of  hometown improvisers with Makaya McCraven, Marquis Hill, Joel Ross, and Jeff Parker. Always seeking outlets for creative expression, Spero responded to the isolation imposed by the pandemic by launching Tiny Records (an imprint of Ropeadope Records). The label’s L.A. studio became the home for Tiny Room Sessions, a prolific series of livestream performances pairing top-shelf jazz instrumentalists with artists such as Lido, J’Von, and Terreon “Tank” Gully. Spero also launched the innovative tech startup weeBID, the first fan-initiated crowd-funding platform. With early supporters like Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancock, the company reverses the crowd-funding dynamic by allowing an artist’s fans and supporters to solicit new work or projects.
