With powerhouse vocals once described as ‘one of the best voices ever heard’ by music mogul and Grammywinning producer/rapper Dr Dre, accompanied with impeccable stage presence, Jeremy Gregory is a born entertainer with the ability to captivate audiences from the first note on.
Born in Durban, South Africa, Jeremy’s introduction to the diverse world of contemporary music didn’t begin until his early teens. With nothing but heavy gospel influence in his house, he started listening to bands like Boys II Men and Jodeci, and realised that pop music could also be really passionate and that opened a lot of doors.
He soon discovered Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Sly & the Family Stone and many other great soul, urban blues, R&B and pop artists dating all the way back to the 50′s.
In 2004, Jeremy signed a record deal with Warner Bros Records and produced a self-composed hit, That’s What’s Going Down – and earned its footing on the Australian Top 40′s singles charts for three full weeks.
That song went on to make more waves in the industry, which eventually led to APRA & ARIA awards’ nominations in 2003 and 2004 respectively. APRA and ARIA are both prestigious determinants in Australia’s music accreditation and artiste recognition.
Jeremy has worked with many prolific R&B/Hip-Hop artistes the likes of Macy Gray, Babyface, and British Pop Idol Will Young, all but to name a few. Not a force to be reckoned with, he has been globetrotting, from United States to Australia to Indonesia to Singapore. Don’t hold your breath, for he is not stopping anytime soon.
