Born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Grenville (a.k.a. ‘G’) has been playing the violin since the age of seven. His musical abilities have been nurtured from a young age with continuous recitals and performances that have resulted in his love for the stage and entertaining others. He comes from a musical family, with his mother playing and teaching piano, his father who sings, and two sisters who are professional pianists and accompany Grenville regularly.
G was classically trained under the Royal Conservatory of Music, and was a member of the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra. While continuing his musical studies, he also earned an Honours Bachelor of Commerce Degree from McMaster University. In his hometown, G was an altar boy for 10 years, a runway model for Beaumonde Productions and part of the disc jockey group, Dynamic Tension. These experiences have contributed to Grenville’s sound religious roots, versatility and showmanship.
G now resides in Toronto and performs professionally across North America and Internationally for special events and concerts. His wide repertoire of music, bubbling personality, and love for entertaining others, are just a few reasons that make him a perfect addition to any special event!
“A party without music is like a low-fat potato chip: Decidedly unsatisfying and no fun”
– Carley Rooney, 1999
