Recording Studio

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.
