Bio

Over the last 10 years, I have been working in the music industry as a singer, songwriter and composer with more than one international radio hit under my sleeve as part of my professional achievements. During those years, the knowledge I acquired in songwriting, composing and producing, I learned through my college education on one hand and through my experience as a popular artist on the other.

 

In 2010, I entered the professional music program at Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy in Quebec. However, I had the withdraw two years in due to health problems. Nonetheless, it did not stop me from pursuing my dream and in 2014 my musical journey started with the creation of June 21, a country band signed by Father & Son Records. We produced and launched our first EP “Summer Love” in 2014 and a second one “A Little Bit Stronger” in 2015. With the help of radio promoter Nathalie Corbeil, our song “A Little Bit Stronger”, produced by Guy Tourville, propelled our band to fame throughout the province of Quebec. With this came live radio and television performances with multiple showcases in Montreal. The band separated in 2015 as we all decided to pursue solo careers.

 

At the end of 2015, I released the song “The Way You Want Me” with the producer Lucky Rose and Higher Reign Music Group. To this day it has more than 12 million plays on Spotify and not only did the song was nominated for the Canadian Music Week, but it was also bought and signed by Ultra Records, a label which signed well-known industry stars like Calvin Harris, Avicii and David Guetta. During that time, I teamed up with John Nathaniel (producer and winner of multiples SOCAN awards) and the late Tom Coyne (legendary music engineer who worked with Adele, The Weeknd, Sam Smith and many others) to explore Pop music in more detailed manner. With this collaboration, I released the song “Think of You” with Mama’s Boy Records. The song had an average playing time on DBS radio stations in Montreal and the music video was nominated at the “Fête du clip de Montréal”.

 

In 2018, I changed management and production team and joined MBMC Music, a company based in Montreal. During that year, I started working with different songwriters and producers and explored Pop and R&B music. I teamed up with songwriter Nessa Roque and released a single called “Everytime” under Higher Reign Music Group/Sony Music Canada. This song has been featured on major Spotify playlists such as New Music Friday Canada, R&B Right Now, Fresh Finds, Go Pop, Introducing, Le motto, and many others. The single has now reached over 77k streams on Spotify.

 

Since I joined MBMC, I started to focus more on the composing and producing side of the music industry. Mentored by producer Youssef “Pako” Mamouni, I participated in the co-writing of songs for several artists, including the song “Alone” by Canadian singer Joshua Moreno, which appeared in the 3D animated film “Snowtime”. These days, I work more and more with different types of artists, and with my vocal training and experience, I believe I have the potential to become a complete producer who can write songs and compose in an original and very current way while also directing singers and helping them with their vocal performances, including harmonies and back vocals.
