Mark Camilleri

There are so many people in the world who have been quoted as saying "music is a part of life."  However, everyone in the world who knows Mark Camilleri knows that for him, music is life.  

Mark’s entire professional life embraces music.  As a Music Director, Pianist, Composer, Arranger, Accompanist, Engineer, Producer, Conductor, or Recording Studio Owner, Mark has encountered nothing but great success.  This success can be attributed not only to his talent, but also a work ethic devoted to always improving and providing the best.  All of this is evidenced by the amazing opportunities and experiences that Mark has had (see below).

Outside of his career, Mark is surrounded by his loving family.  His wife Louise, (a talented and accomplished vocalist, dancer and actor) and his two sons, Andrew and Adrian.

Mark Camilleri and the CT Project


I first met Mark Camilleri on an advertising assignment for Johnnie Walker. It was immediately clear we were both over qualified for the job. He for his incredible piano-playing ability and me for the simple fact that no one should have to sing Karaoke in liquor stores wearing horse riding pants. True story.


As the years passed, we (ok “he”) matured as a musician, an arranger, a producer and most of all as a human being. Happily for me though, he has never lost his sense of humor which, if it were going to school, would be somewhere between pre-kindergarten and grade 2.
To hear the complicated arrangements and see the speed at which he works with other incredibly talented musicians is too much for a comedian’s brain to grasp. But to be able to work alongside him, when our busy schedules permit is like playing hockey with Gretzky, painting with Picasso or committing fraud with Bernie Madoff.


I would say the completion of this first installment of the CT Project fills me with “Glee”, but then I would be sued forcefully and immediately by Fox Network. Plus the music is more mature than traditional pop. Meaning the musicians involved actually played musical instruments.
Plus the vocals of Louise St. Cyr? Well, let’s just say if you don’t have Barry White available, put this on I guarantee you’re making babies. Even if you’re by yourself.
So I’ll just say I am very proud to be associated with the CT Project and if you are a lover of really amazing real music you will really love this. And that is not a topic up for debate!

Every time I get to Toronto, I always find myself in the musical presence of Mark Camilleri, or as I call him, “Mr. Canada.” He seems to be a “one man does it all musical powerhouse” whether he’s conducting, or playing keyboards, or arranging.

Now everyone who listens to this CD will understand what I am talking about. His band is first rate, the vocals are neat and sexy, and all the listener needsto do is probably grab a bottle of wine, enjoy a sip or two, and relax.
Easy? You betcha!
