Copper & Red
Mario Sevayega This is a project that was in the works for over a year. With the musicians, Producer, and Mastering of this magnitude, the scheduling to get everyone together without the financial support of a Label was a huge feat! Their belief in my sound was the first true testimonial to my potential. Now, I'm ready to take it to the next level! I am indebted and very excited about the Musicians and Artists that I am working with. Claude Champagne Claude is one of the biggest producers in French Canada and has many Gold and Platinum selling records to his credit. He is also at the top of his game right now. Since 1996 he has been nominated for nine 'Felix Awards' (Quebec Grammy's) and has won an astounding six times! He has recorded the Russian Red Army choir and The San Francisco Symphony, and before we can type cast him he turns around and records a rock band, or a singer/songwriter. Cluade first listened to one of the Sevayega recordings, after one of his studio engineers who was a friend of mine, secretly passed him a CD without my knowledge. He immediately asked to meet with me. Matt Johnson Matt most recently was the drummer for 2002 Grammy award winning artist John Mayer. He has also played and recorded with Rufus Wainwright, Duncan Sheik, and Beth Orton. Matt first busted onto the Music scene as Drummer for Jeff Buckley. Anyone who has heard Jeff Buckley's 'Grace', need not any more experience to recognize Matt's gift. Hugo Perreault Hugo is an incredibly gifted rock Guitarist formerly of the Canadian Gold record awarded band Okume'. Since his split from the band in 2002 he has been working with Claude both arranging and in some cases coproducing with him. 'Copper and Red' is the third project that they have worked on to date. Andy VanDette Andy is one of the most respected Mastering Engineers from New York's legendary Masterdisk studio! He has worked with many artists including 'The Smashing Pumpkins' and 'Uncle Cracker'. 'Masterdisk's engineering staff has put the finishing touches on over 10,000 albums and boasts hundreds of gold and platinum awards.' Anouk Lessard The sound of a CD is nothing without a great CD design and photo's to match, and Anouk is the best in Montreal! One of the most Recent bands that she worked with, 'Les Respectables', were opening for 'the Rolling Stones' in the of summer 2002.
