Choo-Choo Soul’s Genevieve
Born to musician parents in the San Francisco Bay Area, Genevieve Goings has been creating music since childhood. She perfected her live stage performance touring with her neo-soul band, Legato in 2004. Genevieve’s studio career began in hip-hop, writing and recording hooks for multiple local artists. This expanded into joining many hip hop groups and free styling at many San Francisco venues. Her studio experience led her into voice-over work, and to date she can be found on multiple video games, children’s toys, and websites.
Choo-Choo Soul was developed by video game designer Greg Johnson and music director Burke Treischmann. The two met Genevieve Goings when she auditioned for one of the voice-over roles in a video game they were working on together. Genevieve recorded several character voices on that project, some of which were gospel singers. For those characters, Genevieve suggested singing her lines as opposed to speaking them and both Greg and Burke were so blown away by the soul in her voice that Greg edited the script, adding over 10 pages of new singing lines for Genevieve.
Since the success of Disney’s Choo-Choo Soul “With Genevieve!” she has moved to Los Angeles and released the solo album Diversity Personified, a title expressive of not only her diverse heritage, but her effortless knack for combining genres and styles. In addition to touring with Choo-Choo Soul, Genevieve is also currently working with Disney’s ELL division, creating musical curriculum which teaches English as second language to young children.
Choo-Choo Soul’s DC
Constantine “DC” Abramson is a renaissance man of the entertainment world. Break dancing, beat boxing, acting, painting, drawing and performing as mascots for the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers and the NBA’s Golden State Warriors are among his many talents. DC and Genevieve first toured together in the neo-soul band, Legato. In addition to touring regularly across the US and Canada with Choo-Choo Soul, DC is also currently working on a compilation of beat boxing fused with musical arrangements. Constantine is also a visual artist working in oil on canvas and pen and ink.
