Glen Alan

Glen Alan

Studio Manager/Producer

Glen Alan, a graduate of the Humber College Music Program (1996) was first introduced to recording and engineering in 1998 when he studied recording with engineer and musician John Ferreira, who at the time was head of Cubase Technical Support for Steinberg Canada. With his musical background Glen learned quickly and soon was asked to engineer, produce and arrange the songs of other artists and bands he worked with. His keyboard, vocal and musical experience proved to be invaluable and over time his studio and recording clientele began to grow.

In 2005 while attending Harris Institute For The Arts as a part-time student Glen met and formed a friendship with Kevin Cameron and in a year's time they completed extensive renovations that expanded Find A Way's second recording studio location (originally located at 32 Monarch Park) into a fully treated multi-room recording studio space. When Kevin graduated from Harris in 2006 he was hired part-time as an engineer for Find A Way Studios and Glen made the jump from engineering to producing. Since that time Glen has produced hundreds of sessions at Find A Way Studios. In October 2012 Find A Way moved to its present studio location in Studio City at 75 Sherbourne which is an award winning multi-room recording facility designed world-renown studio designer Martin Pilchner.

A competent session singer, arranger and keyboardist himself, Glen is able to work with a wide range of instruments and styles to produce great results. His strong musical background allows Glen to speak easily to musicians and session players to get the best performance possible for his client. As a voice over artist Glen has been engaged by a number of Toronto filmmakers and a variety of small to large sized business clients including The NHL, Floorball Pro and Georgian Bowl.

Glen has collaborated with many accomplished musicians, songwriters, producers and arrangers including Taylor Ambrahamse, Dylan Bell, Chris Birkett, Tim Bovaconti, Bill Colgate, Michael Cooper, Paul Delong, John Dickie, Marc Dubois, Wendell Ferguson, Don Francks, Robert Graham, Steve Hunter, Elise Legrow, Leh-Lo, Charles James, Sterling Jarvis, Natalie MacMaster, Tony Nesbitt-Larking, Jackie Richardson, Karrnnel Sawitsky, Lenny Soloman, Julian Taylor and Suba Sankaran.

Greg Kolchinsky

Greg Kolchinsky

Senior Mix Engineer

Originally from Russia, Greg Kolchinsky was involved in music from an early age. Greg studied voice and piano but didn’t catch the pop musical bug until he was 14 and heard the Beatles and began listening to Western music. It was hard to get your hands on good western music in the mid 80's in Russia. Greg also played in a Russian band who made a number of amateur recordings. Before emigrating to Canada in his early 20’s Greg studied sound for film.

When Greg arrived in Canada he went to recording school and upon graduating worked in Toronto as a live sound and freelance recording engineer. Within a couple years he had built his reputation and experience sufficiently to land a job as an engineer at Phase One Studios where he subsequently worked for over 7 years. In that time Greg was fortunate enough to work with the following great artists: Barenaked Ladies, Jann Arden, I Mother Earth, Treblecharger, Nelly Furtado, Jully Black, Sting, Leahy, Robi Botos, Vito Rezza, Peter Cardinali, Anne Murrray, Bruce Cockburn, Dawn Langstroth, Herbie Hancock, Hilario Duran, Shaye, Jesse Cook, Cardinall Offishall, LEN, Sean Lennon, Big Sugar, Andy Stochansky, Matt Dusk, Billy Ray Cyrus, Faith Chorale, Ian Thomas and many more.

Over the last 3 years, Greg has continued to expand his considerable experience and reputation as a sought after recording and mix engineer. In the fall of 2010 Greg was hired as an engineer at Find A Way Studios. Greg’s versatility allows him to take on all types of music projects including music for TV, radio and live recordings. Greg’s most recent clients include The Canadian Tenors, The Jersey Boys cast, Jesse Cook, Amy Sky, Mark Jordan, Anne Murray, Levon Ichkhanian, Robi Botos, Lenz Ent., Somerset Ent., Mark Masri, Colin Hunter, U of T Gospel Choir, David Clayton Thomas and many more.
