Atlanta has no shortage of musical talent. Toni Braxton, TLC, Drivin' and Cryin', Collective Soul and Outkast are just a few of the performers that make up Atlanta's diverse music scene. Now another talented singer is ready to leave her mark. Her name is Genre.

Genre (pronounced Jahn-Rey) was born in Fayetteville, Ga. She was an entertainer from a very young age. At school Genre competed in talent shows and sang with the school's show choir. At age thirteen she began voice lessons and then ventured into Atlanta. Genre's resume began to grow. She started by singing cover songs. At age fifteen Genre began writing her own music. Genre caught the attention of Manuel Seal Jr., Grammy Award-winning songwriter/producer, and “Commissioner” Gordon Williams, a Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer. Genre is now under the management of former Arista Records executive, Thomi “Fat Thomi” Hairston and CEO of her own lable CRJ records.

Genre is inspired by music legends such as The Temptations and Whitney Houston. She is also a fan today's artists. Genre's lyrics are very personal and very relateable to the audience. She writes about her life experiences. Genre's newest single, Run Away, is about being hurt in a past relationship. You want to run away instead of heading into your future. You can preview Run Away and Genre's previous material here.

There is much more to come from this very talented artist! You can keep up with Genre at her website.
