Ontario Arts Council Grant & nomination

I've been cooking up some music with the very talented ARLENE, who's upcoming EP will be released in early summer.

We just got the good news that we received a record grant from the Ontario Arts Council... so now we'll be working on a 2nd EP for a Fall release! Not to mentioned she was just announced as a nominee for the 2018 Marty Awards!

Keep killing it Arlene!

'EP OF THE YEAR' nomination at the 2018 IMAs in NYC!

Many congratulations to my sweet DAHLIA for her 'EP Of The Year' nomination at the 2018 Independent Music Awards in New York City. 

 'SHIFT' was released last year and since she's been named 'Best Singer/Songwriter' at the Toronto Independent Music Awards' as well as runner up for 'Song of The Year'.  After a successful run in mainstream radio she's now touring the EP overseas.

I had the honour and privilege to produce/engineer her gorgeous EP. Congrats Dahls!!

"Startup" cameo

Yours truly was just feature as part of the 'Started as a Startup' campaign by DMZ.

The video promotes the ups and downs of the entrepreneurial life. It also features a poorly acted "morning yawn" by me...

Enjoy

Joining forces with TORONTO SOUND

I'm thrilled to announce that as of 2018 I'll be joining forces with post-production house TORONTO SOUND! We've had a close friendship for many years but now we've decided to make it official. 

Toronto Sound was founded in 2012 and since it has become one of the most in demand sound post houses in Toronto, working with numerous agencies and production companies in Canada.

I couldn't be happier to have a home base for future post-production projects. It's an honour to join the team!

DAHLIA wins 'Best singer/songwriter'

I'm thrilled to share that the lovely and talented DAHLIA was named 'BEST SINGER/SONGWRITER' at the 2017 Toronto Independent Music Awards for her single 'Dreamlova' (produced by yours truly!)

She was also runner up for 'Song of The Year'. Many many congrats lady! Truly well deserved :)

Broke and Famous TV Cameo...

As odd as it may seem, yours truly will be seen playing non other than Michael Jackson (yes, Michael Jackson!) on Reelz Network's show 'Broke and Famous'. No, I did not have to dance. What a bizarre, awesome, humbling experience...

This was such a reminder of what a monumental talent this man was. Many thanks to Broke and Famous for this short-but-wild experience...

Billboard...?

On unrelated news, it seems ya'll have the misfortune of putting up with my blown up face across Toronto! It'll be at least couple of months, so sincere apologies...

Many thanks to Beck for the opportunity to humble brag!

We on the radio...

DAHLIA's first single 'Dreamlova' (produced by yours truly) has been circulating all over the radio across Canada. The song's been getting a lot of on-air love! Congrats Dahls :)

DAHLIA EP release!

After working on this project for a couple of years I'm happy to announce that Dahlia Fernandes just released her new EP 'SHIFT'!

It's been a pleasure producing this record, (which turn out quite nicely if I may say so!). Check some of it out HERE

Congrats sweet Dahls :)

'ODD SQUAD' Cameo...

Today I had the pleasure of shooting a little cameo for "Odd Squad"! The episode will air on PBS and TVO later this year. 

Odd Squad's first season won 4 Emmy awards, so I was in very good company on set today...!

Canadian Screen Awards Win!

Our golden child 'Tactical Girls' just won at the Canadian Screen Awards for 'Best Performance By an Actress In A Digital Series' for our very own Melissa D'Agostino! 

This is the show's second award win in the last month. I had the pleasure of doing all sound postproduction for the series... #humblebrag!

Congrats Mel!

Night Time TV Appearance

Many thanks to 'Night Time' for having me on the show today!

We chatted about looping, music projects... and the fact that everyone seems to think I'm a singer in addition to being a producer! I guess I could have just started singing on-air to quickly put that myth to an end... 

Thanks to Arlene Paculan for a fun interview!

'Humble & Fred' radio appearance

We payed Humble & Fred's morning show a visit this morning with my friend and singer Dahlia Fernandes to talk about music, upcoming projects... and our ethnic backgrounds? We also had a little acoustic jam. Fun times...

Thanks to Humble & Fred for having us!
