Singer, Pianist, Session Musician, Arranger & Composer for Hire
I am a full-time professional musician based out of Ottawa, Canada with 18 years experience as both a performer and recording artist. I am formally trained (Royal Conservatory of Music, ARCT) and also play by ear. I have worked with songwriters, DJ’s, musicians and bands, and have had my work featured on radio, tv & film.
I love the process of creating music and transforming simple ideas into something beautiful. Have a listen to my “before & after” demo samples to get an idea of the kind of magic I do.

Pricing & Process
Contact me to discuss your vision for your song along with:
a) a rough recording of your song with a chord & lyric sheet, or
b) written music or a score
I will send back a quote with an invoice for a 50% deposit to retain my services to start your project.
I will then learn your song, arrange, record and mix my tracks, and email you a draft mp3 to review.
I make any changes you’d like until you are happy with the final product, at which point I will invoice for the balance.
The final mastered version (wav), and any stems of individual tracks you’d like, are uploaded for you to download via Dropbox or Google Drive. I complete most projects within 2-5 days.
