Hey this is Mage. I sing and play guitar, piano, and bass. I graduated from Vancouver Island University in January 2010 with a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies. I relocated to Los Angeles in 2014.
Since my early life, I have had an immense passion for music that continues to thrive today. I have participated in some songwriting competitions including the Canada Music Week Writing Competition in 2003 in which I achieved second place for my composition “Flower of Lies.”
I formerly made my living as a computer technician doing technical service jobs. In 2014 I decided to prove my proficiency by acquiring my Apple Certified Macintosh Technician credential in both software and hardware. That same year I left the computer technical service industry to pursue music.
In May 2017 I completed my studies at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) as a Performer-Composer MFA. I currently earn my living through teaching music (guitar, electric bass, piano, voice, home recording, and songwriting/composition).
Thanks for checking out my music!
