What to Expect
We strive for the 'WOW' factor! Our goal is to have our audience, and clients, remember our performance as one of the highlights of their year. In the recording studio, we aim to produce timeless music at the top of the industry.
I am a violinist, music contractor, and producer. It has been my good fortune to live, and work, in Austin for 17 years as a professional musician. Originally from Canada, I moved to the U.S. at age 21 to attend the University of Arizona. It was there that I received my Master of Music degree. I moved to Austin to work as a professional musician in The Live Music Capitol of the World, and to attend the University of Texas for a Doctor of Musical Arts.
Event planners are consistently impressed with our professionalism, range of musical styles, and cheerful nature. We strive to produce the most memorable and entertaining music for all live, and recorded, events our clients dream up.
