Doug was born into a musical family and raised in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario. His father, Bob Wilde played jazz bass and piano, his brother Jim Wilde became a choir director/composer and multi instrumentalist. Sister Pat lost out on the nasty battles for time at the piano and decided to become an artist.
Doug is the principle composer, music director, and keyboard player for the Canadian world/ jazz /fusion group Manteca and plays keyboards with David Woodhead’s Confabulation. As well as composing for Manteca, Doug has released a number of projects under his own name, both “Chamber/ Scenic Jazz” and “Ambient Music”. He also worked as a keyboard player with numerous Canadian artists including Leonard Cohen, Jane Siberry, Nancy White, Manteca, Simon Wynberg and Scott Merritt.
A classically trained musician with a penchant for the punk music. Sev has played in numerous bands, on keyboards, drums and voice. Tulpa, with John Bottomley, holds a special place and so do the rock punkers, Throbbin’ Hoods. Sneaking up on 40 years of experience in a variety of mediums, Sev Micron engineers Muzicare Productions and has produced a good number of indie artists. Songwriting is another of Sev’s many and considerable talents.
And it wouldn’t be right to not mention that Sev loves animals, dogs especially (hi Bela), and that cooking is a forte! Peace and love are big fans, too.
