Roy Salmond has been in the music business for 30 years as a music producer/engineer/composer/studio owner.
Roy’s award winning productions have taken him to some of the top studios in the world, recording throughout Canada, the United States and in the UK. For the last 12 years working out of his own studio, Whitewater Productions in Vancouver BC, Roy has worked on a wide variety of musical styles with a cross-section of performers. From classical to hard rock, from pop to world beat, hip-hop to electronica, film to spoken word, Roy has endeavored to imbue his projects with commercial viability and artistic integrity.
A multi-instrumentalist, Roy often plays percussion, bass, acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, piano and sings on many his projects as well as hiring some of the most in demand session musicians Canada has to offer.
Roy deeply believes in new challenges that spur artistic growth. So in addition to albums Roy also works as a composer, recording engineer and player for film scores. Also known for his erudite bon mots, Roy also writes on music for various publications and speaks on the latter at various music conferences.
Echoing the architect Frank Lloyd Wright, Roy always answers the question of ‘what is his favorite project?’ with …..“The next one.” Encouraging out the fearless creativity of others sets Roy’s heart on fire and gives him meaning in his work.
Residing in Vancouver, Roy loves to read, ride his bike, & unwind in his hot tub when he’s not producing, speaking, or writing.
