My name is James Ervin and I pretty much live for music. I relish any chance to roll up my sleeves, create unique and memorable music for any type of media.
Not just a one trick pony, I have spent the last number of years learning the art of the Mix Engineer. Learning how to mix my compositions has become such a great asset and I firmly believe that no matter how great the music is, it doesn't stand a chance if it is poorly mixed.
With the over accessibility of sampled instruments and loops I find it is all too easy to loose the sense of authenticity when creating music. This is why I continue to to work hard, improving my skills on multiple instruments including trumpet, valve trombone, guitar, bass and the electronic wind instrument (EWI). This has really allowed me to expand the authenticity and breadth of my music.
When I am not writing and producing, I can be found performing trumpet all over the world with Canadian recording artists, and Juno Award winners, Walk Off The Earth.
But that is enough about me. I want to hear from you.
