Nicholas Cangiano is a Montreal based multi instrumentalist who’s soulful and eclectic sound merged with his imaginative, imagery soaked lyrics quickly pulls you into his colourful world and creates a window into his life as a self made musician. Where anything goes, where the peculiar is encouraged, and where you’re enticed to let down your walls and come as you are. Cangiano uses his savvy for several instruments; most notably guitar, bass, and keys to blend influences of classic funk and soul with modern pop and rock together into fresh, infectious productions that will have you coming back for more. His sound has been compared to the likes of Tom Misch, Chet Faker, Jungle, and Daniel Caesar to name a few.
Born and raised in North Bay, ON, Nicholas moved to Montreal, QC when he was 18 to immerse himself in a growing music scene and develop his sound. Having played music since he could walk he learned to record music when he was 15 and from there started on a path of experimentation, honing in on a unique self made sound from which several collections of music emerged over the years. When he made the move to Montreal he began performing in the streets as a one man act, live looping several instruments he had picked up over the years including guitar, bass, keys, and percussion, paying his bills with the tips he would make day to day. From playing in the metros and side streets his first year in the city, to playing for thousands a day in the squares and cobblestone streets of Old Montreal a year later, he continued developing his looping style as well as his self recording technique in his bedroom studio nestled above the streets of the Old Port.
In 2019 Nicholas independently released his first EP entitled ‘Off The Wall’, quickly followed by another EP and a full length LP in 2020 entitled ‘Lonely Paradise’ and ‘Makeshift Vacation’. These projects garnered him a small committed following through fans that he had caught in their tracks on the streets and won over with his unique productions. Cangiano’s prolific songwriting over his time in Montreal culminated in another independently released LP entitled ‘That Thing You Need’ in 2021, and most recently the colourful ‘New Occasion’ EP released in October of 2022. With distribution and marketing support from the team at emerging Montreal label ‘Favourite Library’, ‘New Occasion’ has already been picked up by Canadian radio and press, as well as prominent playlists (notably Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” and “Fresh Finds Indie”). With lots of new music in the works and a strong momentum building, the coming years are set to be big for this young emerging artist.
Songwriting and Musical Style Development
In this course we will explore how we can utilize your unique skills and assets to start writing music, or develop your songwriting skills depending on your experience level. We will be focusing on helping you find your unique style in any or all of the following skills: singing, lyric writing, song structuring, and instrumentation whether you’re just looking to write music as a pastime, whether you want to start experimenting with releasing music, or whether you want to start or develop your career as a musician. This course is for individuals of all skill levels looking to develop their approach to songwriting and come into their own as a musician.
In this class we will look at how to use Pro Tools or Pro Tools First software to record and layer vocals and instruments, make beats, edit and mix arrangements, experiment with production techniques and effects, and apply songwriting skills in a digital medium. I will use my 9 years of self taught music production experience to help you not only understand practically how to record music, but how through experimenting with layering, effects, and other production tricks and strategies, we can open up all kinds of possibilities in the music making process and bring your musicianship to another level. This course is open to beginner and intermediate skill levels from beginners who want to start working with recording software for the first time to individuals comfortable with the practical aspects of working with recording software but want to go deeper in opening up the potential of their arrangements and making their productions sound more professional. This course will touch on technical production principles and techniques but is more so focused on the creative aspect of music production; opening individuals to their potential and finding their voice and/or sound through production.
