Canadian Recording Studio of Note

Written by

Ma-Me-O Music Recording Studio is a multi-service recording facility owned and operated by Miles Jackson, pianist/composer/producer/engineer.

Located 45 minutes from the Edmonton Airport, Ma-Me-O is a lovely town that sits on the sandy shores of Pigeon Lake, right in the heart of Alberta. The studio is across the road from the beach, and offers private accommodation to recording artists as a feature of it’s facility operations and services.

Owner Miles Jackson has been playing the piano since age five, and boasts an impressive list of music credentials. Aside from his years of playing in local ensembles, he spent nine years as musical director for Canadian icon Frank Mills, writing the musical arrangements for Mill’s multiple annual tours, performing the orchestral parts, and directing the choirs that accompanied the Christmas concerts. During the Calgary Stampede, you’ll find Miles in the pit orchestra, backing up over 100 competitors annually in their Youth Talent contest. Some great Canadian artists were discovered during the contest and have gone on to build successful careers, including Paul Brandt, Gavin Hope, Bret Barrow, Canadian Idol’s Billy Klippert, and recent winner Maureen Murphy.

Miles has added to his enormous musical talent a solid repertoire of electronic skills including midi sequencing, computers and software. His studio experience includes fifteen years of operating Milestone Productions, a Calgary based project studio, where among his long list of credits he produced innumerable tracks for karaoke style operations. His greatest passion is working with other singer/song writers to develop their projects for demo purposes or through to commercial CD release.

Over the past 8 years of Ma-Me-O Music Recording Studio operation, Miles has produced and arranged over 60 CD projects in an astounding variety of genres including folk, speed rock, classical, jazz, alphorn, country, marching bands, choirs, big band, inspirational, native powwow music and even comedy. Not to mention blues, R & B and some music that defies description!
