Greenslade was born in Woking, Surrey, England. Among his works are, Cactus Choir, The Pentateuch of the Cosmogony (with art by Patrick Woodroffe) and Music from the Discworld. Television work includes music for the BBC series Gangsters (1975–1978), Bird of Prey (1982–1984) and A Very Peculiar Practice (1986).
After this he "virtually vanished from sight", becoming, as his friend Terry Pratchett proclaimed, "the man every TV producer in England would call when a new TV theme was needed". Greenslade's association with Pratchett, brought him back out into public view, with the 1994 release of From the Discworld, an album of music inspired by Pratchett's novels. Greenalde has been active, between 1994 and 2015, after the re-forming of the band Colosseum.
Two more solo albums appeared, Going South and Routes/Roots, in 1999 and 2011 respectively.
