ABOUT ME


THE ARTIST, THE BUSINESSMAN, THE FAMILY MAN


Born, Gregory Lorenzana, Jr, on May 11, 1980 in Long Beach, California, our family moved from Southern California to the Bay Area, where I would spend the majority of my childhood and teenage years. 


After college, I worked several jobs before realizing that I wanted to pursue showbiz full time. I auditioned for American Idol in 2003, and decided I would take my chances in entertainment by leaving the corporate world, and moving to the Philippines. 


In 2006, new to Manila, I tried my luck in music, signing up with an independent label and management, releasing two albums. In 2008, I auditioned for ABS-CBN's Star Magic at the age of 27, and became a part of their newest batch, Batch 16. 


In 2009, I got casted in my first leading role in the afternoon soap, Precious Hearts Romances, where I would be paired with Kaye Abad. One of the most successful love teams from that show, our pair up would lead to another soap, and my career would continue to flourish as an actor in the Philippines. 


Throughout my career, I would particpate in several musical groups under ABS-CBN, and would perform regularly on their noontime shows. In 2013, I would try my luck as a celebrity contestant, along with my sister, on the first season of The Voice of the Philippines, landing a spot on Team Apl de Ap. 


In 2016 I got married, and was encouraged to go back and try music again as a solo artist. So in 2017, I would end up signing a distribution deal with Warner Music Philippines, releasing several singles. 


Also in 2017, I became a resident DJ at one of the largest dance clubs in South East Asia, Cove Manila. 


2017 also marked the year I would end up moving to Viva Entertainment, where I would sign a 5 year management contract. Today, they are handling my acting and singing career. 


Outside of showbiz, I am the founder and president of my own artists management company, Open Door Artists. My company currently handles music artists from all parts of the world with offices in the UK and in Manila. For more information on my company please visit, www.opendoorartists.com.


Aside from all of this, I am a loving family man. I am very active in my church, leading Bible studies with my wife, and I also sing on the praise and worship team. I have a beautiful baby girl, and am expecting another baby in early 2021.
