Tim Murawski and Rick Casson

Tim Murawski is a contemporary harmonist and composer living in Toronto, Ontario. He began playing guitar at age 11, continuing with classical music while studying film production in college. Tim Murawski soon learned that he didn’t want to compose the same way as others and decided to be more creative with his approach to music. 

 

Eventually, he was drawn toward composing harmonies for songs but found that there was not much for beginners. He began working on his musical endeavors full-time in 2004 after a mutual friend introduced him to the singer Rick Casson. Tim Murawski explains that Rick had written several songs with no one to play guitar on them. Tim agreed to work with him and formed his first band, “The Good Intentions.”

 

After the songwriting process for their first album was over, Tim Murawski decided that he wanted to continue working with Rick. Therefore, he asked him if he would be interested in playing music full-time. In 2005 they wrote and produced their first album together under “Murawski Casson.” This was the beginning of a long friendship/collaboration between the two.

 

Tim Murawski has been known to play several guitars and do commission work for guitars and synths. He has also performed live using Ableton Live, Logic Pro, GarageBand, and several other applications. Tim Murawski plays a 1982 Gibson J-200, purchased from Jamaster in Montreal. His other main guitar is a Fender Stratocaster (1955 serial number).

He was made in 1955 and owned by Murawski from 1990 to 2016. It was restored by professionals and is now back to the state it was when it was purchased. The business mentor uses D’Addario strings on his guitars throughout his latest solo album, “Songs for the French Revolution.” Tim Murawski also uses a wireless microphone system for live music performances when playing with other artists.
