At 15, Asher was accepted into the prestigious Interlochen music academy in Interlochen, Michigan where he studied music composition and piano performance. Upon graduation he moved to New York City to study Jazz composition with acclaimed pianist and arranger Mike Longo, and in 2000 Asher moved to Toronto, Canada to follow in his father’s footsteps and begin his career as a music composer and producer with Lenz Entertainment.

The young music duo is setting the bar high for Canadian songwriting and is sure to have a long and successful career.

Douglas John Cameron grew up in Midland, Ontario where he studied piano and began composing songs at the age of nine. Throughout high school and University he styled himself after the folk-singers of the 
day and played bass and guitar in rock, country and quasi-jazz bands.

In the late 70s and early 80s Douglas was part of the nascent ‘New Wave’ scene in Toronto.

In 1985 Douglas teamed up with composer and producer Jack Lenz to produce “Mona With The Children”, a single released on True North Records. The song and video told the story of a sixteen- year-old girl who had been imprisoned and executed in Iran because of her beliefs. “Mona” went top twenty in Canada and told Mona’s story to a generation of young people, garnering a Juno nomination.

As the whirlwind experience of rock stardom wound down, Douglas entered the Music Program at York University, earning an honours degree with a major in voice. He also began to transform himself into a children’s entertainer, aka Douglas John.

Douglas John's first album for children entitled Rainbows was produced by the legendary Ken Whiteley of famed singer, Raffi.

Douglas John also wrote and recorded over 30 songs for Ants In Your Pants, Canada's top preschool music video program seen on Treehouse TV. Ants In Your Pants! Volume 1 was nominated for a Juno award in 2000.

His next children's album Tickadeeboo! (2002) was entirely self-produced and performed.

Douglas John has also composed extensively for television. His credits include Go For It and The Body Inside (Discovery Channel), Dear America (HBO), Designer Guys, Love By Design and Holmes On Homes (HGTV), Doc (Global), Ants In Your Pants, Wee 3 and Ask Me (Treehouse), Nanalan (CBC), Weird Years (YTV), Heart of a Poet (Bravo), Stratusphere (Travel), Big and Small (BBC/Treehouse).

Douglas John lives in Toronto and when not performing for children, he plays regularly with Toronto Celtic group Joyce’s Folly, country/blues/jazz combo, The Louisiana Snowblowers, and blues-R n’B band Three-
Chord Johnny.

Stephen Skratt has been scoring for film and television professionally for thirteen years. A self taught musician who started out taking piano lessons from nuns and enjoyed listening to the dulcet sounds of his parents marching band records, Stephen soon graduated to the drum kit and a number of other instruments. After moving to Toronto Stephen was lucky to work with some of the best composers in the city. This proved to be an excellent way to learn a craft that is not so easily taught in school. Working on two seasons of Due South as an assistant to Jack Lenz was a great education in how to score a series. Over the past twelve years Stephen has composed music for a multitude of film and television shows both good and bad, dazzling clients in process.
