Richard Uglow first started playing classical piano when he was seven. Although he always loved playing, he didn't take it seriously until he started studying jazz with Ted Moses when he was a teenager. Ted also mentored Richard in the skills of composition and arranging. He made his first $100.00 from music while in high school by receiving an award at the Canadian Stage Band Festival for a composition he wrote for the school jazz combo. He has now been playing and recording music professionally for 30 years. At 19 Richard started playing in professional bands around Toronto, most of which played R’n’B and top 40 music. Over the last two decades, he has played and/or recorded with a number of artists including Hell + High Water, The Mighty Pope, Jane Child, 3 plus 3, Morris Albert, Errol Star, Joe Johnson, J. Douglas, and his wife Jasmin Uglow. 

Jasmin Uglow, formally Jasmin Bailey, was born in Montreal. Her first experience with music was as a gospel singer at a young age. Having a choir behind her, amplified her experience and seasoned the quality of her performance as a lead vocalist. She built her confidence as she graced the stages of many churches, concert halls and weddings in her early days.  Her parents were musicians and taught her the value of music as they expressed their own love for the art. Her siblings are also talented vocalist, including Shyann Bailey, one of Toronto's best performers.
