I am delighted to have received funding from Canada Council for the Arts and FACTOR (the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings) towards my debut solo album, Lineage. This is a project which is very dear to my heart, and has been over a year in the making.

My debut solo album will feature works by Iranian-Canadian composer Iman Habibi, Irish composer Rhoda Coghill, Johannes Brahms, Claude Debussy, and Ottorino Respighi. I feel honoured to have a wonderful team in producer David Jaeger, and recording engineer Dennis Patterson for this project. Check back for updates as the recording process gets underway. Be sure to follow me on Facebook as well, where I tend to post more frequently with photos, news, and behind the scenes action! In addition, I will soon be announcing a release date for the album, as well as information about an album launch concert!

Meanwhile, I would like to take a moment to sincerely thank the Canada Council for the Arts and FACTOR for their support!
