This is the page for gene r. singleton Jr. an aspiring videographer and composer who uses the knowledge of music theory and film to help paint explosive visuals and sounds to reach out to others. the beginning of my journey was most like any other artist who needed an outlet. dealing with the loss of loved ones and depression was how this all came to be. the birth of what is now grsjr international started with album sales from the debut album journey having support in
journey, a project composed, recorded and mixed by myself came about through my interactions as a warehouse worker in a well know music store. in savannah georgia. during my work period i was introduced to several DAWs (
A digital audio workstation (DAW) is an electric or electronic device, or computer software application for recording, editing and producing audio files. ) this allowed me to lay out my thoughts virtually rather than writing my compositions on paper. exposure from playing on the pianos alone through my lunch breaks landed me gigs at the
Hunter Army Airfield , and local tv shows hosted by other videographers in the
i grew up a multi - instrumentalist having a mother and father carrying the torch as organists at their churches. young i was exposed to the talent of musicians backing choirs and vocalists. playing saxophone and drums was what i was most recognized for as a young lad and those two instruments have brought me to where i am today. wanting to gain money outside of the normal 9-5 i was a street musician wooing the tourists of the
Savannah Historic District
making up to $100 a night i figured I'd push my self to see if i would get the same response with multiple instruments. i was a popular face among the inner city of Savannah's classical music scene giving lessons all throughout the area on piano. generating a buzz , i brought my physical copies of my newly released Journey (2013) album while playing downtown and that maximized my profits. after a while my social presence had reached an all time high of 12,000 followers and i managed to obtain a music app found in google play and the app store provided by eMinor | CrunchBase which would allow my followers free ability to listen to any tunes i uploaded via web.
it didn't take me too long to figure out the cycle of playing at local bars/ night clubs was not for me. my composition is and has always been a full sound requiring a little more performers than what i had at the time. in hopes of finding a way to expand my life, i found just that in Denver, Colorado taking a two week trip that resulted in a life changing solo step in to the real world. my plan as a child was to have an organization to help children and adults harness their talents and use them to teach and help others.
through production of more albums and independent films which showcase the inner beauty of the cities i visit and people i meet, i plan to also expand my audience.. living in Denver for about a year i released a second project Destiny (2014) to go along with my current set of published work. at this point I'm networking, expanding my circle and interaction, looking forward to branching out of my independent films and hopefully writing for major films. (any thing is possible)
if you're still reading this, I'm not there yet and i need your help by promoting my work. what do you think? ;) Take a stroll through life with me and keep up with this gift god has given me.
