Greg Edmonson grew up in Dallas, Texas and played the guitar as a youth. He studied jazz composition at the University of North Texas College of Music. Later, while he was a studio musician and session player, he went to the Musicians Institute of Technology. He has studied with Dr. Albert Harris, the former musical director for NBC and a leading composition teacher and music lecturer.
As a protégé of the widely successful and well known TV composer Mike Post (Magnum, P.I., Hill Street Blues, The Rockford Files), Edmonson worked on a number of series providing additional scoring for Post (credited and sometimes not credited).
His compositions are usually written on the piano but he sometimes uses a guitar.
