George Leger III has been involved in the recording industry
George started his journey into the world of music playing tuba
at the age of 7. By the time he was 20 he was playing drums, guitar,
bass, and keyboards and was performing in bands until he attended
The Institute of Recording Arts in Vancouver, Canada (now known as The Center For Digital
Imaging and Sound).
Soon thereafter, George began creating songwriters' demos for
the membership of The Pacific Songwriters Association in Vancouver,
B.C., Canada. Many of these recordings were deemed to be of high
enough quality that they were getting airplay on both CFOX, and
Z95 FM, the two top radio stations in Vancouver. His own song,
"I¹m The One", was one of the most requested songs
the year it was released, and one of his clients, Thomas
Donovan, has achieved international success with his three
As time went by, George honed his craft as a producer and arranger,
and many of the songs he worked on as musician, arranger, and
producer, went on to win awards in many songwriting contests,
including Vancouver, Canada's Write-on, and the prestigious
Billboard Song Contest.
With the launch of his new studio, Utopia Parkway Digital, in
the fall of 1993, he decided to branch out into CD Mastering,
and soon he was considered to be one of the top mastering engineers
in Western Canada, as well as the Pacific coast of the United
States. His work in this field has been a factor in some of his
clients winning the Juno Award in recording excellence, Canada's
version of the Grammy Award. The
Paperboys' CD, Molinos, was one of those winning a
Juno award. That same year, 1997, seven of the CDs George had
mastered were nominated for Juno Awards.
He considers the computer his current instrument / tool for music
creation. He is very gifted with these tools, having an innate
ability to get the best out of them. George's sonic and technical
prowess is comparable to any "A" list professional.
Among his entertainment industry clientele, George's proficiency
with the Macintosh computer has gained him the nickname, "MacDaddy".
He has also been songwriting with a number of up-and-coming
and well-known artists; served as a tutor or technician to clients
like Donny Osmond,
Rhonda Smith, Sheila
E, Kat Dyson,
Abdul; is author of an Emagic
Logic Tutorial; and is or has been a beta tester for Emagic,
