Biography:

Born in Kapuskasing Ontario, Neil showed early signs of musicianship as a child. His Parents sent him to Saint Michael's Choir School where he learned rudiments of music theory and harmony and to really hear and appreciate music. He continues to show a love for arranging and composing music and an undying passion for listening to music. Neil has enjoyed learning and performing all over the world with his closest friends in the a capella group 'FATE' and all over the greater Toronto area with the 'Uptown Swing Band' and dear friend and pianist Norman Amadio.

"To record with Norman (Amadio) has truly been a dream come true and a great gift to my family as my Grandfather (Lauri Salo) had played (drums) with him in Timmins. It is an even greater honor to call him a friend!"

Recently Neil joined the ranks of 'Airborne11' as team captain for the Global show "Canada Sings!" which aired Spring of 2011. The group won a 10,000 $ donation to their charity 'Ronald Macdonald House'.

His passion for music continues through learning, creating and performing for life!


“Switching styles is one thing - as Brother Neil does with ease and grace on "Bonfire Confessions". But in the end, it's the songs that count the most. And to these ears, the album is a feast of folk music. In the ideal world for which we long, young people with guitars will be singing these very songs around a camp fire in years to come.”

- Mark Rheaume, CBC Radio
