Thank you for joining me and experiencing some of my musical ideas. Let me tell you a little about myself. I started in music by learning the piano at the age of five. My father had a music business, so I had the fortunate opportunity to learn other instruments along the way. Of those, the guitar was the instrument I enjoyed the most. After taking some formal lessons on classical guitar I pursued my love of jazz and for a short time played locally in the Ottawa area. Other pursuits in my father's business and later my own business in the music field kept me away from playing for a number of years. However, several years ago my interest in playing was rekindled and recently after being pushed by fellow musicians, I came out with my first album 'Bright Start' in 2007. Since then I've realized that writing music is really what I want to do at this point.
My criteria is writing and selling to other artists and producers. Laurel Moore has as an example written and performed lyrics to some of my tunes and as mentioned earlier, won an Akademia award.
I'm now signed with different publishers and several producers have some of my work on file to be used for the future. As well, several tunes both from the 'Shadows of Light' album and my own instrumentals, are being aired on radio at major cities around the world.
I hope you enjoy the music.
