Major: Audio Engineering

My name is Graylyn "Gino" Claiborne Jr. I'm studying Audio Engineering at the Recording Connection Audio Institute. The studio I study at is Metro 37 owned by my mentor Kevin Sharpe. As my final years in highschool approached, I was torn between following the path of my football career or following my absolute passion which was my love for creating and composing music. When my season didnt quite go as planned, I immediately knew that it was a sign that I should pursue my musical dream and study audio engineering. In highschool I loved to rap and write poetry, so I often recorded songs and posted them to youtube and twutter, but as I got older I realized that I wanted my music to be looked at as more than a typical "youtube rapper's material" so I stopped putting out vocal material still until this day, that's until I can offically record my first big project professionally. On the production side, I continued to post videos on youtube, soundcloud, and twitter to bild some buzz and i'm still doing so! My goal is to make great music when it's all said and done, and to be able to know how to engineer as well?! I see a bright future ahead!
