"After hearing a performance by Chi & Greg, you may get the feeling this duo is tapping into something deep below the surface."
— Bethany Bushen, Behind the Setlist
Chi & Greg, formerly known as the Heartland Nomads, are a Brooklyn-based duo made up of Chi Ko and Gregory Meyer. The two met in Los Angeles in January 2013, while working at Liberty in North Korea, a nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing and resettling North Korean refugees. They have been together ever since. Following the tragic deaths of their three friends — Calvin, Shane, and Karolina — they made it their ambition to seize the day and chase after their long-abandoned dreams.
The two have been playing music together since they met in 2013, but they both had been playing music long before then. Chi started singing when she was four years old, and Greg first picked up his grandmother's guitar when he was six. With powerhouse vocals, emotive arrangements, and evocative lyrics, these two tap into something deep below the surface. Their songs are honest and vulnerable, breaking through barriers and bringing emotions straight to the surface. Their music speaks straight to the heart, creates space for pain, and firmly proclaims hope.
In 2015, they began writing, making music, and performing together for people on the streets of Long Beach. One year later, they packed up their two, small cars and moved across the country, from Los Angeles to New York City. In October 2016, they released their debut EP, Small but Fortunate, and in 2017, they went on a Small But Fortunate National Tour with Sofar Sounds. In May 2019, they will be embarking on their Old Light Tour throughout the Northeast of America. They are currently working on their second EP, and they hope to release it by the end of 2019.
