What our students say about us
I started my moniker, TAILS, at Nimbus when I was a student and the first tracks I put out were projects from class - which got a lot of great hype and good radio play from BBC1 radio and DJs. After graduating, I started playing a ton of shows and making money from my music, enough to quit my “day job”. Nimbus taught me of course all the engineering and production tools, but more than that, it taught me to focus my drive and put in the work”.
Spencer Reid (aka TAILS)Nimbus graduate, Producer, International DJ
I need to live in the arts, I need to work in the arts - that’s why I came to Nimbus - so I could learn more Business and get a hold of my life to take it where I wanted to take it. One of the best things as a Nimbus student is our community. You can’t come expecting everyone to coddle you, you have to find your own way. What you put in is what you’ll get out!”
Ali RossNimbus graduate, Director, Producer, Independent Filmmaker
Through the teachers and the Nimbus community, I’ve been able to network and get my start in the industry. The amount of people I’ve met through Nimbus and in the industry has been amazing, not to mention the amount of work I’ve been getting!”
Liam MoesNimbus grad, Engineer, Producer, Musician
I learned everything I know from my instructors at Nimbus! They stayed my mentors and became my colleagues once I graduated, and it’s so cool to be able to call them up when you have an engineering or live sound problem to hear their solution and then ultimately come up with your own way to fix something. Nimbus made me realize I’m on the right path, and I want to continue to do this for as long as I can!”
Jay BagasbasNimbus Grad, Live Sound Engineer
I have support that I haven't felt in a long time. It’s nice to have a creative home”

an alumni ode to nimbus
My experience at Nimbus has been otherworldly. First of all, having a year all to myself with the amazing gear we had access to was amazing. Studying at both campuses (Main Campus and Nimbus 9 Studios) has been nothing short of exhilarating. Every day was a learning opportunity, a new experience, a new challenge to overcome, and another successful milestone in my career path and life journey. The instructors. THE INSTRUCTORS! You were so amazing to us, a rambunctious crew of kids barely able to comprehend the influence Nimbus was about to have on us. Having my eyes opened to the world of the music industry and getting to experience firsthand that magical force behind the curtain was humbling and mind-bending. THANK YOU."
Turning heartbreak and introspection into angst-pop anthems, Cassie Dasilva’s songs explore breakups, nostalgia, and learning to love again. Combining saccharine vocals, intoxicating melodies, and hard-hitting lyrics, Dasilva gained popularity on TikTok with her viral song and video ‘Unsolicited Contact’, and in the emerging pop world surrounding the release of her debut independent EP, ‘Enough’. 100% female-produced by JUNO-nominated powerhouses Hill Kourkoutis and Robyn Dell’Unto, the project has amassed millions of streams since its summer 2021 release.
What critics say
EARMILKraves, “The vulnerability in this EP stands out. It’s like she’s talking to her audience as a best friend in a confiding moment. Her ability to pinpoint specific details throughout a relationship ties this EP together.”
A fully independent production
Dasilva’s debut is a fearless DIY culmination of world-class pop songwriting, engineering, and production, with female collaboration and empowerment at its core. An independent artist in full control for the first time, Cassie has found her voice and with it, an insatiable audience.
