Album Notes
Jim McGrath (pronounced McGraw) is a Toronto-based composer best known for his film and television work, which includes ThinkFilm's The Last Mogul : The Life and Times of Lew Wasserman, Alliance Atlantis' film Foolproof, Columbia Tristar thriller Resurrection and Odeon's Treed Murray, which was nominated for five 2001 Genie Awards including Best Picture and Outstanding Achievement in Music. The score for Treed Murray went on to win Gold in the 2002 Film Festival in Mar del Plata, Argentina.

McGrath has orchestrated and conducted film scores with the Munich Symphony, the Salt Lake Symphony, the London Philharmonia and the City of Prague Philharmonic. He has also written arrangements for such recording artists as Tom Cochrane, Ian Thornley and Big Wreck, the Tower of Power Horns, Manteca, Universal Honey, The Northern Pikes and Sarah Slean with the Art of Time Ensemble.

Concert music includes a set of miniatures recorded by True North Brass, a suite for horn and orchestra for Canadian Opera Company principal horn Joan Watson and a commission for the Kitchener Waterloo symphony:

“…both the piece and the performance were pretty much the highlight of the whole concert. Larry Larson's trumpet was beautiful and flawless, and the piece itself had echoes of Aaron Copland, John Williams and even Samuel Barber. Written for trumpet solo, strings and harp, Silent Town is a miniature masterpiece.”
- Harry Currie, The Kitchener Waterloo Record, October 4, 2002

Jim is currently scoring his seventh season of CTV's award-winning series Degrassi:The Next Generation, for which he received the 2006 Gemini Award for Best Original Score for a Dramatic Series.
