Songwriter + Producer
I’m a songwriter + producer from Vancouver, BC (Canada).
My songs are about the dualities of the daily life, relationships, magical getaways, and personal dreams. As a songwriter, I am inspired by the craftsmanship of the classic writers such as Cohen, Cash, Springsteen, Young. As a producer, I am influenced by the sound palette of the modern artists and the infinite possibilities of technology. As a result, my work would fit somewhere between the romanticism of Cohen and the artistic curiosity of Bon Iver.
As an artist, my goal is to contribute and make a difference by creating and sharing beauty.
Visuals + Sounds
At the age of four I was given my first guitar. I remember it, as of yesterday. I clearly recall the feeling of standing in the kitchen, a foot on the table and the other on the chair, holding the guitar real tight. I was entertaining the infinite crowd in front of me. A new passion was born!
Drawing helped me survive high school. It allowed me to step away from the boredom, into my own imaginary world. This world was located somewhere between vinyl album artwork and Bugs Bunny’s fantasies.
In college I learned to turn my dreams into reality. I studied fine arts and communication arts. At night and on weekends, I played bass with various local punk rock, emo-core and post-rock bands. I was then, exploring every possible creative avenue. Music was becoming the central point of my life. During this period, I recorded and toured with bands such as: Unsafe, June, Equilibrium, Land of Nubia. After years of touring and somewhat intense living, I decided to slow down and do something gracefully important. I founded a family.
I am currently living and working in Vancouver, BC (Canada). I am a proud father of two with whom, I enjoy the West Coast lifestyle with. The busy modern life fuels my songs with ideas and keeps my passion well alive.
I studied fine arts and communication arts and I recently completed a master certificate in production and songwriting, at Berklee Online.
My current work includes publishing ambient music under the name of Tecosha and writing for other artists, movies and advertising.
