Since its inception in 2002 by founders Sami Ghawi, Michel Samah and Mo Halabi, FUSIONpresents has been dedicated to “helping artists do what they love.” We’ve mentored hundreds of aspiring artists over the years through our range of professional artist development services, helping them make the jump from basement to stage and beyond! We’re so proud of sharing our knowledge and expertise as we believe whole-heartedly that helping people do what they love makes the world a better place. FUSIONpresents was trademarked in 2006.
For over 20 years, FUSIONpresents has also been providing reliable & exceptional music entertainment services to companies, non-profit organizations, individuals, and establishments in the leisure and catering sector including hotels, restaurants, bars and lounges. FUSIONpresents strives to provide its clients with the highest quality of musical entertainment, delivered by talented performers with personality and class. What’s more, we pride ourselves on the highest customer service standards and ALWAYS go above and beyond expectations!
Years of musical collaborations with talented songwriters, musicians, DJs and producers have resulted in the creation of an extensive catalogue of original songs, instrumental compositions, themes and musical samples covering an array of musical styles. As such, all songs within this FUSIONpresents Collaboration Catalogue are available for license, furthering the reach and potential revenue stream of the artists we develop. Many clients have also solicited our creative content services for the development of customized songs for their brands and events.
Among our various charitable efforts, FUSIONpresents has also proudly supported the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada with quality creative music services since 2005! Many of our artists have donated their time and talents to lift the spirits of event participants, helping the MS Society raise more funds for the great work they do.

FUSIONpresents has partnered with the Surrey Board of Trade to open the Music City Centre at the SBOT. This collaboration formalizes our initiative to help build the City of Surrey into a bustling and thriving Music City and economy. Supported by a City of Surrey Culture Grant for 3 years in a row, FUSIONpresents and the Music City Centre produce the Music City Surrey Showcase, highlighting the best Surrey-based local artists in online interviews filmed at the FP Studio, culminating into an annual live showcase at the Surrey Arts Centre.
Our promise to the artists we work with is to take them “From Basement to Stage“. To fulfill this mandate, and alongside our Artist Development Program, FUSIONpresents hosts youth development jams every month at Clayton Community Centre in Surrey, as well as monthly artist development workshops online, interviewing local music industry professionals who shed light on their roles in the music economy. Prior to the pandemic, FUSIONpresents hosted the decade-long all-ages Sunday Night Jam at West Beach in White Rock where we gave countless aspiring artists (and everyone who wanted it) a chance to ROCK! Among the various other venues we managed were the Sheraton MIXT Lounge and The Bennett Poco.
Collaboration is the key to success, and at FUSIONpresents we pride ourselves on the long-standing and amazing relationships we’ve established and nurtured with many major players in the music industry. At the top of our list are music retailer Long & McQuade (Port Coquitlam) and legendary music companies, Fender and Roland. These three companies have proven to FUSIONpresents time and time again how dedicated they are to artist development and to the vision of a world full of music and love. Thank you for your continued support of FUSIONpresents!
FUSIONpresents also publishes a monthly newsletter highlighting the month’s upcoming events, top stories, artist highlights, and so much more! Take a look at our previous publications and subscribe to receive your digital copy of the FP Newsletter by email!
