“Greg helped me understand how to use my mix to enhance my singing in the most effective and reproducible way. The songs I worked on with Greg lead me towards the style I most enjoy singing in to this day. He uses his extensive knowledge of choice techniques to help every singer reach their full performance potential. Having watched him produce an extremely well-received album with several distinctive vocalists, I KNOW how well he can coach the perfect performance out of any artist.”

“I was lucky enough to experience Greg’s teachings in Buenos Aires. Thanks to his classes I discovered that there is a link between the most profound parts of our spirits and the voice and that, beyond the spoken word, our stories can be shared with the universe through song…”

"Greg really helped me to realize through the process what was limiting me as a performer, which as it turns out was keeping me from acting on why I love singing in the first place! He took me from mimicking a song to owning a song. Working with Greg is amazing!"

"I had the honor of working with Greg on my recording of India Arie's "Brown Skin" for Shades’ Sankofa album. I loved the experience of working with Greg. He took a polished vocal that I created for "Brown Skin" and showed me how to push my voice and range further to deliver an absolutely stellar vocal. Greg allowed me to play with my vocal ability in the studio and gave me visualizations to apply to my voice during our recording session. With Greg's outstanding prowess as a vocal coach and musical director, he helped me create a recording that surpassed anything I could have done without him. "Brown Skin" was nominated the following year for "Best Mixed Collegiate Solo" by the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Academy. Recently, "Brown Skin" was selected to appear on the Best of Yale A Cappella Album. Greg is truly a genius."

-Jamice Oxley, Singer, Entertainment Lawyer

“I called Greg very late on a Monday evening in desperate need of some vocal coaching in preparation for an upcoming audition that Wednesday. Greg was graciously available to help me that same evening, and the coaching was amazing. Given that I am a dancer, I was very impressed that Greg was able to translate many of his corrections to physical actions I could do, speaking in the physical language with which I am familiar, and I was able to immediately understand all his corrections. I am normally terrified to sing in front of people, but Greg created an environment of comfort yet intense work that made me feel much more confident and armed me with vocal techniques and information that I was able to use in my audition and beyond."

-Kendra Ross, Dancer, Teaching Artist

“Greg was a trusted collaborator on my debut recording Offiong Bassey and throughout the pre-production phase, gave me sound advice on word choice and rhythms that have enhanced the clarity of my messages. And this was no easy feat, given that my project spanned Afrobeat, Highlife, Gospel, and Jazz Soul! A prolific songwriter and vocalist, he floats among genres with ease and can help bring an artist's vision to life, as he has done in his own compositions. To any project, Greg brings funk, humility, brilliance, and a certain "je ne sais quoi" that will surely take any artist to the next level!”

-Offiong Bassey, Singer, Songwriter, Producer, Poet

Has mentored South African youth in Johannesburg through music and performed widely in numerous venues including the U.S. Africa Business Summit in Washington D.C. and the GreenSoul Fest in Boston
