Greg Buium is a writer and edi­tor in Vancouver.

His arti­cles on cul­ture have appeared in the Believer, the Wal­rus, CBC.ca, and most of Canada’s met­ro­pol­i­tan dailies, includ­ing the Globe and Mail and the Van­cou­ver Sun.

A noted music critic, he has also con­tributed to Down­Beat, the Wire, and Coda, among many oth­ers. His music writ­ing has been trans­lated into Span­ish and Ger­man and has been anthol­o­gized in a uni­ver­sity text. He has writ­ten liner notes to numer­ous jazz and improvised-music record­ings in Europe and North America.

Born in Van­cou­ver in 1969, he is a grad­u­ate of McGill and the Uni­ver­sity of Chicago, where he stud­ied history.

He is cur­rently at work on his first book, The City Stays in the Pic­ture, a series of non­fic­tion nar­ra­tives explor­ing the con­nec­tions between place and artis­tic creation.

He lives in the Grand­view Tri­an­gle, in Vancouver’s east end, with his wife and two children.
