When it comes to the current contemporary music scene, few artists possess the giftedness and authentic talents of Christon Gray. An Ohio native, Christon comes from the same stock where fellow music greats John Legend, Twentyone Pilots, The O’Jays and The Isley Brothers got their start.
Christon’s music combines elements of his soulful church upbringing, classic jazz, hip-hop and contemporary R&B. This blend of musical touch affords him crossover appeal into the mainstream and made way for the cult classic, School of Roses, which Billboard exclaimed as a hot-shot debut, landing at number 5 on the R&B charts. After signing to RCA under Kirk Franklin’s imprint, Fo Yo Soul in 2015, Gray released the 2016 massive hit "Stop Me" on The Glory Album. The project also peaked at number five on Billboard's R&B chart, number 9 on the Hip Hop Chart and number six on the Christian chart. “Stop Me” has been synced on a variety of major placements such as ESPN, The Espy’s, Honda, HBO's Ballers, FOX's Lethal Weapon, the movie Rampage, the intro of Madden 2019 just to name a few.
With two top five albums on the Billboard Hot R&B Albums chart, a recent signing to "The Thirties" management company, and a distribution deal with "OneRPM", Christon is looking to embark on his biggest solo project to date "School Of Roses 2" in 2021. He has fully embraced being an independent artist and is anticipating some of his brightest days climbing the charts in multiple genres of music.
