Biography

Magir, one half of the group known as The Breakaway Point is a new artist entering the music scene. He uses acoustic instruments along with a natural talent for production and arrangement to create the proper palette to tell stories, create imagery and invoke thought. Magir’s singing and characteristic deep voice evokes emotion. Magir, born Mark Edward Giroux on July 18th, 1985 realized his love for the creation of music later in life. He always had a deep appreciation for music. His major influences taught him that you can create pictures with music; they were Ludwig Van Beethoven, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Gustav Holst, Igor Stravinsky and Claude Debussy. His love of classical music followed him throughout his life. In 1991 he started taking piano lessons. Even though he stopped 1998 he continued learning on his own until he was able to master difficult grade 10 pieces. Enjoyment persuaded him to pick up a guitar in 1995 and within a few years he had taught himself to play it by ear. He continues using this ability in the present. To date he has learned and recorded piano, guitar, violin, djembe, bongos, clarinet, flute and various other household items such as wine glasses and elastic bands. His deep voice takes centre stage on "Memoirs of a Man", a song that explores someone's lost happiness, and their inability to locate it again. By day Magir serves coffee, while not working there is nothing except music. “Everything you will hear is a real sound recorded by us. Almost everything is played by us, recorded by us, mixed by us and mastered by us. Our aim is honest self expression and we believe we have captured that. In the end it’s all about sounds, textures and depth.”
