Working with Artist Alliance has been incredibly beneficial to myself as an artist and a business person. Whether you to turn to Jason and his skilled team for work on or off the stage, you’ll always find yourself coming away with more than you previously had. Jason has the real world expertise and always gives his clients the very best – he’ll never settle until you’re happy. If it hadn’t been for him, I wouldn’t have found my confidence as a frontwoman or as a business person, and I would have lacked many things that have made me successful in the past year. He has the knowledge, he has the compassion, and he has the patience to see you out until the end. I’d highly recommend that you take whatever chance you can to work with Jason and his team.
– Maryn Pegan, vocalist and frontwoman of Five+None- Rock Artist
One year ago, I embarked on a new journey as a singer and songwriter. I had little knowledge of all the hard work required to create stellar songs. Jason Wilkinson was a godsend! He clearly explained the steps needed for successful songwriting and music production. I was honored to work with him on multiple successful songs, as a result. He goes above and beyond, providing excellent suggestions on how to improve the melody or tempo, and coming up with creative ideas for fills, leads and related enhancements. Jason is patient, knowledgeable and a very skilled music editor. He is also a talented event organizer and promoter, and was instrumental in arranging a short joint Restless Soul/Sirsy tour (Sirsy is a successful American rock band). This was Sirsy’s Canadian debut, and they were so pleased with the outcome. I hope that we continue to work together on new songs and related music projects!
-Cindy Goldberg, Restless Soul band- Rock Artist
I had a great time recording with Jason at Artist Alliance studio! I had been searching for the resources to help me complete several unfinished projects when I found the studio and Jason gave me the guidance and tools to complete the tracks and take it to the next level. We were able to lay down and mix professional sounding vocals, and recording at the studio was a very warm and welcoming experience. Jason also assisted me in putting together my first show as a solo artist, showcasing the finished productions and helped me develop a step by step plan to bring it all to life. Jason’s experience and expertise was exactly what I needed to get my career in music off the ground, and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Artist Alliance Studio.
-Neekoe- R&B Artist
The One Artist event was by far the best competition that I have attended so far. The marketing around it was amazing and we truly felt that we were at a high value event. The branding was very nice and the treatment you gave to all contestants was top notch, I think every participant truly felt like a rockstar, despite who won, I think in the end, they all won in experience. Our favourite part was the boot camp and your presentation. No completion we’ve attended has ever done that and it’s so crucial for artist today to understand the music industry and how everything now works. I think that your presentation is worthy of a seminar that you could go around cities on tour, teaching new artists what you know.
Overall it was an amazing experience and it really pushed ya to the next level, which is where are are working on right now.
-Gerry Rozo- Bella Rose- Rock Artist
It was an absolute pleasure working with Jason in his downtown studio! Jason is down to earth, easy to get along with, and definitely knows his stuff when it comes to writing songs and studio recordings. I came in to record a single song, guitar and vocals. Jason helped me go over song ideas and gave me tips on how to improve the song. The entire recording process took around 4 hours and it was honestly a lot of fun. The service was quick, I got my mastered and mixed song in 3 days, and very affordable.
I would definitely go back to record more of my songs in the future! I highly recommend you do the same!!

“I have worked with a number of production companies and have found Artist Alliance to be of the greatest value and quality. They have outstanding equipment and facilities in place to develope artists of all levels and genres. The staff and owner is very knowledgeable and understanding as a musician and as a producer. It has been a privilege to work with Jason and Artist Alliance to make my music.”
-Falvi – Hiphop Artist
Jason and I have worked together in two capacities. As his Social Media Manager/Artist Supervisor and as an artist signed to his label Young Wild and Free Records.
During my time at Artist Alliance Jason has always made sure the environment was friendly and ready for the next artist to walk in the door. Every consultation was met with professionalism leaving the artist inspired and filled with knowledge they could apply to their future careers. Jason’s business plan for my career has far exceeded my expectations and as helped my music career grow in a very strategic way. More buzz and bigger, better ideas for every show.
Jason has inspired me to think bigger than big and has directed me in another path that I didn’t think possible. Always keeping my light and vision for myself alive, we always work as a team to attain my goals and the goals he has set for me always keeping me on track.
Jason would be an asset to any organization.
-Laura Gagnon – R&B Pop Artist
My bands time with Jason in the studio was unreal. We received everything we were promised from the very first moment we spoke with Jason. He taught us an endless amount of techniques when it comes to song writing and he also showed us the first steps to producing and recording our own music. Jason helped us take our songs to a new level. Our songs are now at a spot that we never thought they’d be. His studio had a very chill and welcoming feel, with everything available to us to record a hit song. In our opinion Jason is great option to be working with right now for any new artist/band wanting to start a career and record hit tunes. We can’t wait to return to Ottawa to work with Jason again in the near future!
–Luke Olsen and Jordon Arbuckle – Earthquake Like Shakes – Alt rock Artist (Coming Soon)
Working with Jason has been so educational. He has helped me get back on track with my music career and shown me how to take control of my music career by myself. He’s taught me the business side of things like no one else has, throughout this year working with him I have been able to grow my career and manage it better than I ever have!

Passion, desire, devotion, commitment
After a 10 year career in acting, I switched over to a new career in broadcasting in 2010. During these years I’ve had the opportunity to meet a lot of incredibly successful people in the entertainment industry. However, I fondly look back at my time spent with Jason, now seeing that the drive he had and continues to have for music, is the same exact kind of drive that has built the careers of this industries most successful people. If you were to put your ambitions into some ones hands, I’d highly recommend it to be those of Jason Wilkinson and the Artist Alliance Company,
