According to Rootz Reggae & Kulcha magazine, “Eugene Grey is yet another of the many genius guitarists of world class status that Jamaica has produced” playing professionally from the age of 14. Eugene has toured worldwide as lead guitarist with such artists as Grammy Award winners Burning Spear and Toots and the Maytals, and Kid Creole and the Coconuts.
More recently Mr. Grey established a music base in Argentina where he has been invited to perform several times since 2007. His latest attendance was in 2013 where he completed a successful one month tour backed by the local band, Sessiones. Eugene also, by special invitation of the Province of Patagonia Argentina conducted music workshops. These workshops and clinics were conducted as part of his nonprofit Rootz of Music, Inc., that was founded in 2011 to provide music education and cultural enrichment performances to underserved communities. That same year saw Eugene perform as guest artist on the Reggae Jazz Fusion at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts featuring the legendary Jamaican jazz pianist Monty Alexander.
Mr. Grey released his latest solo double album CD called Diversity in 2010 and was inducted into the Bob Marley School of Music Walk of Fame.

All of Eugene’s releases were recorded at his own studio, Tropic Isle Recording Studio, Inc. in Fort Lauderdale where he is the engineer. Two songs on Ernie Ranglin’s latest release Surfin’ (Telarc), “Dance All” and “Yu Si Mi” were recorded at the studio as well as Eugene playing guitar.
