Gregg Belisle-Chi is an Asian-American guitarist and composer living in Brooklyn, New York, who over the past decade has been “busily establishing himself as an important and distinctive new voice in the contemporary guitar world” and “has emerged as one of the most creatively dexterous musicians.” (Earshot Jazz) 

Described by the New York Times as “a subtle stunner,” his work draws from the spaces between the spiritual and the analytical, the ethereal and the tactile, inviting listeners to a place of pause and reflection; music that “oozes beauty both in concept and execution, making us luxuriate in its immersive sonorities.” (Part-Time Audiophile) 

Within a career of mercurial interests, he has performed with Bill Frisell, Tim Berne, Reid Anderson, Hank Roberts, Jim Black, Ches Smith, Marc Ducret, Steve Swallow, Cuong Vu, Ted Poor, Ben Goldberg, Wayne Horvitz, Nasheet Waits, and many more in the Jazz, Improvised, Rock, and Chamber music worlds.
