Well, you could say this really started back in 2009 in a dorm room at York University, when Bryn and I first met and casually fell into what would be one of many deep discussions on music, life & philosophy. It didn’t take long before blazing and talking about ideas didn’t quite seem like a worthy use of our time – so, we started to look for ways we could bring those ideas to life, make an impact on the world with our creativity, and connect others to their own. As a result, over the seven/eight years so far of our friendship, our lives have taken a markedly different trajectory.
We started with simpler creative victories – made some CD’s of original music, printed 100 copies and placed them unlabelled around campus for anyone to take and enjoy. We both made lots of other music during this time, and dabbled with volunteerism. Soon after, we graduated with B.A’s in music from York University. We found love with ladies, and we found heartbreak, and love, and lust, heartbreak, and etc. I went to hell and back to rediscover my love for music after a long battle with depression, and stumbled into a career I love in voice acting at the same time. We started playing gigs and winning music contests – we ran Airbnb together. Later on, while taking a rigorous leadership program with the intention of getting trained to make a great living in the arts, I booked a part acting nonstop on a sitcom, then booked another show, then another.

But out of all our victories, making this studio has been, by far, the most challenging one since the start of our friendship, and likely in our 25 & 26 years on this planet. But when you prove to yourself you can keep your word and follow through on the other things, and jump the bar with so many other hurdles together – heck, everything starts to seem possible.
