MIGIZI Website Sell your music everywhere


Game of Thrones had just begun, Apple lost their founder and a Royal wedding had everyone enamored. 2011 was also the year Peter Masson embarked on starting up MIGIZI. A rock band with a throwback to the '80s sound, but after several months things hit a wall and Peter had to walk away. He took a few months to rejuvenate his musical plans and with Rick Sabourin, they started anew with Marc Leclair, Petyo Penev, and Paul Gould. A group of men in their 50's (sans Paul who's 30 years their junior) who just love to rock, MIGIZI was back in action come March 2012. Fast forward to today and they have released their debut single, "It Feels Alright" with a new album hopefully out by the end of September 2017.

Inspired by fellow Canadian artist Bryan Adams for the beauty of his simplicity, as well as The Eagles as Peter has been a lifelong fan. A reason they have two lead guitars is due to the influence of The Eagles. With that along with their harmonious additions, they bring a vibrant energy to their performances - which have been abundant. MIGIZI has played over 85 shows in the Ottawa area from bars to fairs and everywhere in between, including opening for 80’s powerhouse Prism. Some of those shows have included their latest single "It Feels Alright" which Peter says, "It was a collaborative effort from all of us to just throw song riffs and rhythm down and I came up with the lyrics pretty quickly for this one. Not a whole lot of meaning behind it just wanted something with some punch and that would be a little catchy with the people listening to it. We have had some great feedback so far."

Not only do they have a single that's killing it, but they also have been featured in Danielle Magazine, as well as on Aboriginal CKCU Radio 93.7FM. MIGIZI has also qualified for the Canadian Finals music competition through Landmark Entertainment. Right now they are focusing on those Finals, as well as pushing out an album in September 2017.
