Thanks to everyone who helped with this new album: Robert Guerrier (master composer, pianist, mixer, and very very patient collaborator!!), Adrian Carr (AC Mastering- master of mastering!), Jean Anfossi (who just knew this would be a great partnership! www.2.musicforproductions.com), and my truly supportive and loving family and friends!
The past two months have been an incredibly fruitful time for me with my production and composing! ’Piancelle’ is a co-production in every sense, and the beautiful music that has stemmed from it makes my heart sing!
I was connected to Robert Guerrier (a seasoned composer/pianist) through Jean Anfossi, who has a music publishing library (www.2.musicforproductions.com based out of Toronto) and who is the publisher of these wonderful new tracks. Once the connection was made, Robert and I co-composed and co-recorded all the music via the web! I was so inspired by Robert’s music that the cello lines just seemed to emerge and soar from the piano lines. I am very excited to present these tracks in the neo classical genre.
Album set to drop December 5, 2013, when it will be available for download and purchase.
Here is a preview, as the tracks are now available for licensing!
I have so many favourites, but ‘Esprit’ is definitely on the top of my list! Enjoy!
Being a part of OrKidstra, a non-profit youth music program that empowers kids and builds community, has been a huge part of my heart and my life these last 6 years. With Tina Fedeski, Gary McMillan, amazing teachers, and an incredible Board of Directors, the Leading Note Foundation has flourished in leaps and bounds. It is bringing music back into the public school system in Ottawa this year, in 3 schools as a pilot project, and the satellite program at York St. Public School has been going strong the last four years! I can’t say enough about the children and youth that come together every week to immerse themselves in music and to help one another. Working with the kids of the OrKidstra every week is a highlight of my week and watching the bonds form as we all work together to create beautiful music and beautiful people is simply inspirational.

Infernal is all gurgling, dark cellos brewing, and climbs to an unbearable intensity! So cool to write and produce and my personal favourite. My edgiest track so far.
Impulse is kind of a Bond adventure, or a thriller, with excitement around every corner! Again, my musical mind lets loose and I truly think composing is a great outlet for all my emotions. Welcome to my world!
