I grew up singing and listening to vinyl. My formal vocal training began at age 17 when I decided to study privately with classical and jazz singing masters. Joining a band in high school and forming my first band in 1987,
I performed and wrote original folk, rock and progressive rock music while graduating from York University.
My independent, self-titled, debut, Canadian, jazz CD gained critical acclaim and still receives regular airplay on international playlists. My live release in 2000 with my band ClaireVoyance gardered "CD of the Week" at Jazz Review in the U.S.. Performing "Something's Coming - An Evening Of YES Music" live at HotHouse Cafe 2005, I realized my potential as a vocalist.
As an educator and performer I continue my musical life journey hosting my 2nd, (self titled) Renaissance Jazz Fair Feb. 1, 2 & 3, 2008, Toronto, ON Canada http://www.bcrjf.com

On my tune "Timeless" I played both piano and bass myself.
I made this for my client SEIKO WATCH TV-CM a couple of years before. The complete version will be on my next album. Yes, It's gonna be a great idea with Vocal. I should start thinking some Lyrics for it.
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
