Nicolas Stackhouse is a bilingual (English/French) Canadian composer, music producer and sound engineer from Ottawa, Ontario. His musical sound/style as he describes is “cinematic”. It is a genre of music often instrumental, emotional and dynamic that creates worlds in the listener’s mind. However, he is versatile in all genres of music and can adapt to various media. 

Music became a passion at a very young age for him. He started composing music at the age of 14 when he purchased his first digital audio workstation (DAW) FL Studio by Image-Line. Thus, truly began his journey into music. 

After graduating high school, Nicolas continued to educate himself on the music industry by enrolling into the Music Industry Arts program at Algonquin College. He then graduated with honours and won an award for “Best Production 2015-2016” with his third independent study project (now known as “Breathe”). 

While he is knowledgeable in many aspects in music, his primary goal is to compose music for film and video games. He is currently working on his portfolio by composing soundtracks for Montreal student films and working on personal projects.

Nicolas currently resides in Ottawa, Ontario.
