It all started when I first discovered the wonderful world of music at the humble age of 6. It was with Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”. I loved that song so much, I made a cassette mixtape with only this track in repeat then at the end, one copy of Europe’s “The Final Countdown”. As a typical 6 years old, I would listen to this cassette in repeat for hours. At 13, I discovered Cakewalk music software. I instantly got hooked with creating music of my own. I was no Justin Beiber, just a kid tripping his life on a dinosaur computer. Then, from 16 to let’s say 25, I was deep into progressive metal. The more notes you can cram in a song the better it is right? Well, not really. That might work for some super talented gifted musicians. I was good, but not THAT good. You know you ain’t that great when the best comment you get at a live show is: “well, that was… interesting.”. A couple of years later, I moved to Montreal and hooked up with some friends that had a top 40 rock covers band. From Black Eyed Peas to System Of A Down. They needed a singer, and cocky as I was at that time regarding music, I figured out it was going to be pretty easy (chocker: it was not lol). But something happened in the 2 years I was in that cover band. Songs that I would usually despise because of their simplicity started to feel pretty fun to actually play! We did a dozen or more shows and I started to really like the feeling of playing music for people that are just there to have a good time. That was the first epiphany that brought me back to pop and general public songs. Just the pure joy of making something I loved doing at the same time as entertaining people. This brought back my love for pop music. Back in my home town of Granby, Qc, I started back to compose new music with old friends. Making heavy rock but always looking on the side to include EDM or electronic music. I was in between 2 chairs. Undecided. Fast forward to 2019 after a couple of years of dive into EDM/Metal creative dilemma, I stumbled upon Reggaeton. Sadly, I tend to discover stuff 10 years after everyone. I’m working on that ? As a musician, when I love a style to death, I tend to crave the need to make it for myself. And you know what? I’m now 38 (as of 2020) and making Latin Reggaeton makes me happy like a child rediscovering music for the first time. So, that’s pretty much that whole story.






What is music to you? What does it give you?
