Born and Raised in Calgary, AB, Gremlyn discovered his love of music very early on, being influenced by any genre of music his ears could listen to. After years of music lessons, Gremlyn began to discover Hip-Hop and Electronic music, two genres he had heard almost nothing of before. He was instantly inspired and wanted to create music, rather than just play it. At the age of 12, Gremlyn was already producing music and training himself to become a DJ. After years of practice and live experience in his hometown proving grounds of Calgary, Gremlyn joined the Hip-Hop and Dance Crew, Legacy One. They toured all across Canada and South Africa, performing and teaching DJing, Dance, and Spoken Word at Churches, Youth Conferences, and Schools, sharing messages of Hope, Artistic Motivation, and most of all, the Love of Jesus."
