Gregory James Maxwell Juan was born on the beautiful island of Maui and raised in Kihei by his parents, Rodney and Hiʻilei Maxwell-Juan. Greg is a proud alumni of Kamehaeha Schools Maui ʻAʻapueo. He graduated from highschool in 2012. He attended the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa with a Bahelor's Degree in Communications, specifically for Public Relations and received a minor in Hawaiian Language. He is very passionate about singing Hawaiian music, playing the guitar and ʻukulele and dancing hula. Greg dances hula for Hālau Kawailiʻulā, under the direction of his Kumu Hula Chinky Mahoe. He is the older brother of Edward Juan. As keiki, their tūtū kāne would pick him and his brother up from Waiheʻe Elementary School and they would constantly listen to Akoni & Da Palapalai Patch, which is how they learned to sing their first song "He Uʻi", together. In 2016, Greg graduated from from Kamehameha Schools 'A'apueo. He also attended the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa with a Bachelor's Degree in Communications, specifically for Public Relations and received a minor in Hawaiian Language. In that same year, he became the 2016 Richard Hoʻopiʻi Leo Kiʻekiʻe Falsetto Winner. His inspiration comes from those before him who have helped developed his love for music as well as pass down their ʻike which has helped shape him into the talented young adult he is today and hopes to be someday.
