Geoff Castellucci Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education
Geoff Castellucci was born on 27 August 1980, in Alexandria, Virginia USA. He hasn’t talked about his parents and siblings much, just saying that his parents supported him in his earliest musical aspirations.
He was just five years old when he started playing piano at his grandfather’s house in New York. In addition, he also was interested in break-dancing, but his dancing skills were nowhere near his musical talents. Aware of these talents, Geoff’s parents enrolled him into local classical and jazz piano training. From there on, he became interested in singing, and while in middle school joined the choir where he got his introduction into a cappella singing.
It was in high school that he developed the skills of a bass singer, and met his future colleagues, with whom he started the famous VoicePlay.
The group was formed in Orlando, Florida in the early 2010s, with Geoff, Layne Stein and Earl Elkins as the original members, while other members joined later, including Eli Jacobsen and Cesar De La Rosa, who are in the current line-up. Several changes have been made over the years, as various musicians came and went.
Rise to Prominence
The band started performing at local venues, earned a reputation, and recorded their songs. Gradually they were becoming more popular, and Geoff was becoming known as the bass-man, his low voice at times imitating a bass guitar. They started touring the US as they were earning recognition, and so far have gone on eight national tours. The group has won several awards, including the 2019 Shorty Awards Finalists for YouTube Musician of the Year, and were the season four finalists on NBC’s “The Sing-Off”.
Moreover, they launched their own YouTube channel, on which they have been uploading music they make. So far they’ve amassed more than a million subscribers, and their videos have around 200 million views. Some of their most popular videos include “Moana Medley ft. Rachel Potter”, which has over 38 million views, then “Road Trip”, viewed around nine million times, and “This Is Halloween| The Nightmare Before Christmas”, which has around 8.5 million views, among numerous other videos that have only increased Geoff’s wealth and popularity.
