  Galveston and Dustin
  My name is Galveston Barnaby a.k.a ill-Logic. I'm a First Nations Mik'maq from Listuguj Quebec, and am only 17 years old. I played basketball my entire life until one year I decided that it wasn't my thing. When my mom told me I had to find a new hobby, I took her advice and turned to music. It was just fun at first but after putting a few songs out and receiving positive feedback, music made me feel so good that I decided to continue making it.

I founded Gmanwolf Productions in 2008. The company started when my friends and I began making videos for laughs. After designing my own logo, the snowball effect started. As many people in my family are involved in business, I think it's in my blood. Someday I wish to open up my own professional studio.

My name is Dustin Isaac Googoo. I am 19 years old and my hobbies include writing positive songs, skateboarding and snowboarding. I was born in Campbellton, NB and raised in Listuguj Quebec. I have been into music since I was just a little boy and started to take it more seriously as a young man.

Music is something I can see myself doing for the rest of my life! Creating a positive message in my music makes it a fun challenge. I hope it helps and has an effect on many people. I am very respectful and understanding in my work. I appreciate every opportunity that comes my way. Thanks.
