I started playing piano when I was 6 years old and I never stopped!
I learned by listening to radio, television and LPs from Peterson, Bryant, Nero, Jimmy Smith and many others.
As a teenager I played at show clubs and cocktail lounges including the Lapinère, Vieux-Prince, La Galoche and Aviation Hotel where the acclaimed Drummer, Guy Nadon also played. We jammed together Sundays.
At La Butte à Mathieu I played alongside the Montreal Jazz Bassist Legend Charlie Biddle. My band played many years at La Diligence Stagecoach earning a rave review from Montreal Gazette's Tommy Schnurmacher.
I also honed my musical skills through a decade of Classical Piano Studies at Champlain College, McGill University and other Music Academies.
I grew up in a musical environment. At age 13, I was introduced to organ music when I came back from school one day and a Classic Hammond organ was in our living room. I fell in love with the sound and soon after that I was playing, with my friend Gilles Legault, earning money with my first music shows.
As a teenager I was soon on the music circuit after winning a radio show contest at Place Versailles, I would later head out on four trips to California during the organ music era.
No stranger to the jazz scene, I lead the Paul Dow Jazz Trio and Quartet. I have played countless venues and Summer festivals, as well as with musicians such as Yves Adam, Ivanhoe Jolicoeur, Kevin De Souza, Guy Richer, Yvon Plouffe, Daniel Préfontaine, Guy Thouin, Daniel Lemay, Alain Mercure, Alex Bellegarde, Claude Lavergne, "Doc" Jean-François Roussel, etc.
