it all started quite accidentally, my sister entered my name in a local talent competition without my knowledge, i received an invitation to an audition and went on to become a semifinalist.
after that competition i became a member of the vocal group l.i.g.h.t, an acronym for "living in great harmony together" .that is where i meet gregory the g in r&g.
we developed a great friendship and began writing songs together.
in 1996 the group entered its first major competition, our national song contest, with a song penned by gregory which took us to the finals. sadly after that competition some of the members pursued separate careers.
in 1998 greg and i entered a local jingle competition and won first prize, with that we decided to record the album "a love to remember". the album was completed in august 15 2004 and since its release it has maintained study airplay on local radio, the album also received very good reviews in the local newspapers.
music, creativity and art. that spells gregory henderson stoute jr. born on the 31st august 1971. here i am thirty-three years later with an ever growing passion for music. an artist in the true sense, this passion does not stop with just music but extends to painting, drawing, designing and building woodworks as well but my writing and the creation of music will always be my first love.
i came from a musical family, where many if not all of them have in some aspect been affiliated with music. along with these home-based influences there were the international artist such as, earth wind and fire, boyz to men, stevie wonder and brian mcknight.
my musical experience was first explored singing with the five member accap pella group l.i.g.h.t. "living in great harmony together". we started making guest appearances at school shows and other community concerts. the barbados song contest was the first major competition where we sang the song "people" written by myself and arranged by john roett.
the group has since parted and remaining are myself and rodney small forming the duo r&g. we have just completed the recording of or first cd "a love to remember".
q: who would you say gave you the push to get started on the project or with music altogether?
a: r&g. a local broadcaster and member of madd entertainment kevin hinds gave the first push to take music seriously and encouraged us to go into the studio so we could work on the project "a love to remember".
q: did you ever think you would have this cd?
a: r&g. honestly the answer to that would be no, this project took (5) five years to put together and that in it-self would discourage most people.
q: how would you describe the album?
a: r&g. the album is "the handbook for lovers, an investment in your romantic future" a cd everyone should have in there collection.
q: have you reached your peak, if not, where would you like to go from here?
a: r&g. no, we have not because creativity has no limit and we would like to go as far as possible or as far as our talent will take us. we are also establishing ourselves as songwriters for other artist.
q: what advise would you give to someone who would like to enter the music industry?
a: r&g. you must be prepared to work hard first and foremost, love what you are doing and be true to yourself ,don''t try to be like someone else. hard work and being who we are is what got us to this point. all we can be is r&g.
