Originally from Russia, Greg Kolchinsky was involved in music from an early age. Greg studied voice and piano but didn’t catch the pop musical bug until he was 14 and heard the Beatles and began listening to Western music. It was hard to get your hands on good western music in the mid 80’s in Russia. Greg also played in a Russian band who made a number of amateur recordings. Before emigrating to Canada in his early 20’s Greg studied sound for film.
When Greg arrived in Canada he went to recording school and upon graduating worked in Toronto as a live sound and freelance recording engineer. Within a couple years he had built his reputation and experience sufficiently to land a job as an engineer at Phase One Studios where he subsequently worked for over 7 years. In that time Greg was fortunate enough to work with the following great artists: Barenaked Ladies, Jann Arden, I Mother Earth, Treblecharger, Nelly Furtado, Jully Black, Sting, Leahy, Robi Botos, Vito Rezza, Peter Cardinali, Anne Murrray, Bruce Cockburn, Dawn Langstroth, Herbie Hancock, Hilario Duran, Shaye, Jesse Cook, Cardinall Offishall, LEN, Sean Lennon, Big Sugar, Andy Stochansky, Matt Dusk, Billy Ray Cyrus, Faith Chorale, Ian Thomas and many more.
Over the last 3 years, Greg has continued to expand his considerable experience and reputation as a sought after recording and mix engineer. In the fall of 2010 Greg was hired as an engineer at Find A Way Studios and recently became a recording instructor for Find A Way Music School. He is also an instructor at Trebas Institute in Toronto. Greg’s versatility allows him to take on all types of music projects including music for TV, radio and live recordings. Greg’s most recent clients include The Canadian Tenors, The Jersey Boys cast, Jesse Cook, Amy Sky, Mark Jordan, Anne Murray, Levon Ichkhanian, Robi Botos, Lenz Ent., Somerset Ent., Mark Masri, Colin Hunter, U of T Gospel Choir, David Clayton Thomas and many more.
