  • How He Got Started in Jazz Music

    in Entrepreneur

    Listen in as we speak with Kang and hear how we went from IT to discovering and accomplishing his passion in music. 


    One day I was tired of wishing and wanting to learn how to play the bass guitar. So I ordered one, because I'm left handed. I watched the instructional DVD that came with it. I tried to follow the recommended way to play a bass guitar and hand placement. I noticed it was holding me back, just like some people type on a computer they don't follow the suggested hand placement but they can type real fast.

    The day I realized to go with my gut feeling and just play what you feel and don't worry about hand placement - just play. I learned how to play faster, smoother and by ear. I can read tabs if need be.  I've been playing the bass guitar for 4 years so far and I haven't looked back. I'm living my dreams!!!

    Power of Perception music with Monty Greig

    in Spirituality

     


    Monty Greig has been a singing and entertaining for audiences all over Ontario since 1999. In his Rock & Roll Days, as lead singer for the Popular 80’s style band "One Night Stand" he served as the show opener for Canadian Rockers "Trooper" and for 60’s Legends "Dr Hook and the Medicine show". For many years he relished the idea of trying something new. While working in Las Vegas, he fell in love with the whole "Rat Pack" style of music and entertaining. Upon arriving home, he started his journey into jazz standards and has never looked back.  For the past 5 years he has been pleasing audiences by bringing to life his "Crooner Show" and breathing new life into classic jazz standards from the best in the business. As a high energy entertainer and a soulful singer, Monty has the ability to bring a crowd to their feet and have them dancing the night away.  
    In 2010 he recorded his first jazz standards demo, self titled "Monty". This made its way to several small radio stations around Ontario. In 2012 he released "I’m Gonna Live Until I Die" which featured 2 original tracks and was subsequently picked up by many more radio stations across Canada via DMDS. It was November 2013 when Monty released his third album "Winter Wonderland" through networking efforts and DMDS. He was able to have this album picked up by even more stations in Canada, the U.S. and in Europe.  In January 2014, he was able to market 2 of his albums on iTunes, Amazon, and many other media outlets, and has had a consistent level of sales in the Canadian, U.S and European Markets. Over the past 5 years Monty has gained over 10,000+ fans through social media outlets and has gained popularity from his 250+ live performances over this time period.  In early 2014 Monty teamed up with Mark Zubek to help bring his original music to fruition.
