Music Producer Bob Ezrin Inducted Into Canada’s Walk Of Fame

Nimbus co-founder, music producer Bob Ezrin will be inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame this year. The Walk of Fame ceremony will take place on September 21st, 2013 at the Elgin Theatre in Toronto. Bob was also recently named an Honourary Fellow of the Royal Conservatory of Music.

Bob Ezrin has an incredible legacy spanning 50 years and counting with immense contributions to Canadian music and entertainment. He has garnered many awards through his work with some of the world’s most well-known and influential artists, including: Alice Cooper, Kiss, Pink Floyd, Jay-Z, Peter Gabriel, Fefe Dobson, The Tenors, Taylor Swift and more.

Bob has been part of the Nimbus tradition since his early days working with Jack Richardson at Nimbus 9 Studios in Toronto where he also worked with another Nimbus co-founder, GGGarth Richardson. Bob has an uncompromising dedication to excellence that informs all of his work. This focus on excellence carries through to the training and mentorship we offer here at Nimbus School of Recording Arts. While he lives and works in Nashville, Bob is frequently at Nimbus offering his time and wisdom to our students and alumni.

In response to this most recent recognition, Bob said, “I have to say that I’m a bit overwhelmed by this honour. I honestly don’t feel like I belong in the company of most of the current and past inductees, which makes this both thrilling and humbling – and makes me truly thankful.”

He went on to say: ”If it weren’t for Nimbus 9 Productions, Jack Richardson and Allan Macmillan, I may never have had the kind of career that could lead to something as amazing as this. I am so grateful for the opportunity they provided me and for the education I received there. I have decided that, as a way of “earning” the star legitimately, I will use the platform that it provides to promote music and arts education in Canada.”

We are very proud of Bob for this great honour and wish him a wonderful day at the ceremony in September.

Congratulations, Bob, from the whole Nimbus family!
