is a musician, composer, music director, and producer who has become a sought after visionary in the music industry. Grey strives to uphold an influential brand through his pursuit of excellence and holistic approach to life. His value is demonstrated through his commitment to understanding the intention of the artist and the heart of the music in order to create, collaborate, and execute.
Grey is a triplet, born to parents who grew up during the Ska and early Reggae music era in Jamaica. Raising first generation Americans, his parents instilled discipline, strong work ethic, and the importance of education and the arts to all four of their children. Grey's early exposure to various genres of music helped him develop an attraction to the bass instrument and rhythms. His education and experiences have armed him with vital skills and invaluable lessons along his journey. He graduated with a Bachelor of the Arts in Music and Music Business from City University of New York- City College and maintains his personal studies of history and theory of music composition.
Grey has developed a solid and versatile repertoire, with acts including Michelle Williams, Will.I.AM, Ludacris, The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, and the Greater Allen Cathedral Choir, in addition to the West End and Broadway bound musical 'Marley.' His entry into commercial music commenced while touring with hip-hop recording artist Fabolous and he has not looked back. Since then, he progressed to working with Keith Harris, founder of the Gobo Music Agency, and has musically directed and collaborated with a broad range of musical acts including Mary Mary, Fifth Harmony, Rodney Jerkins, Stanley Brown, Shedrick Mitchell and Jason Michael Webb, to name a few. He is currently the assistant music director for the Greater Allen Cathedral Choir and Michelle Williams.
In production, Grey is adamant about being detail oriented and having a strong grasp on organizational structure, no matter how small or large the project is. The objective of his company, ChelTune Music Productions LLC, is to find the balance between how we process life individually and how we seek to work collectively to bring people together and elevate consciousness through music.
Grey appreciates working in an industry that can defy time. He expects that the music he creates and plays today will serve as a positive foundation for what is to come in the future. The absence of comprehensive music learning in academic curriculums nationwide is a problem that Grey is looking to help solve. As a musician that can read, write and teach he hopes to inspire future musicians to come through partnerships with his company HelpOneHelpOne.
