Artist Development

Since 2011, Slaight Music has worked closely with over 20 Canadian musicians and bands to further their career development and help put their music in front of as many new fans as possible.

With many years of experience in the business, we collaborate with an extensive network of industry professionals to foster relationships and develop partnerships at all points in the music-making chain, from composing, recording and producing to performing, marketing, promoting and distributing.

Think of Slaight Music as a new music incubator, an organization committed to fostering the ideal conditions for maximum creativity, carefully aligning promising talent with key players and influencers on the Canadian musical scene.

In 2011 we worked with Liz Coyles to help her break through on Canadian radio after she landed in the top spot in our annual It’s Your Shot contest. This year’s champions Thought Beneath Film are taking advantage of their $50,000 prize package to finish their debut album and are gearing up for an extensive tour.

Our investment strategy sees us taking a stake in the future business potential of musicians we feel will succeed, helping to nurture their artistry and raise their profiles before sharing in any revenues.
