JP Maurice on SoundBetter

I've been writing and producing music for the past 20 years. Have international touring and performing experience for the same amount of time. I love collaboration and trying to find the true essence of a song.

I have been writing songs and performing as an artist for the better part of the last 2 decades, but my real love and passion for music is in the studio.
I started cutting my teeth at music production when I was 14, after my mom bought me a Tascam 4track tape recorder. This affection for recorded sound evolved into a home studio I opened up with fellow Victoria native and westcoast indie legend Aidan Knight in the late 2000's. It was here I really burst onto the local scene, recording my first professional production gig for Arts and Crafts artists Gold+Youth as well as the demos for Hannah Georgas' debut record.
Since then I have slowly been gaining a strong resume of artists I've worked with over the years which range from members of Hey Ocean and Said the whale to Canadian HIp Hop hero Shad, and Internationally successful artists like Mother Mother's Ryan Guldemond and Pink.
My 4th album as a Solo artist "Pressure Makes Diamonds" was released in 2021 which I co-produced with Ted Gowans (Kesha, Tegan and Sara, The Rentals)
