Canadian Music Week 6th to 10th May 2014

This piece of news deserves its own page. Yes, as you might have read elsewhere on here, I've been invited to perform at a Showcase at Canadian Music Week. It's being held this year in Toronto from 6th to 10th May and is one of North America's largest and most important music events. Nearly 300 speakers from all over the world speak at various conference events during the days of CMW, and then in the evenings there are performances of all sorts staged at over 60 venues across the city. Notable speakers this year include Tom Windish (The Windish Agency), Matthew Adel (CEO, Beatport) and Terry Ellis (co-founder of Chrysallis Records). And the performers would just blow you away - Ellie Goulding, Tegan and Sara, The 1975, Dallas Green and loads more, all the way down to a series of Showcases for unsigned artists like me!
This year the main spotlight for the week is on Germany, with a further special focus on Switzerland and Austria. I get a free ticket to all of the conference events so it's a great opportunity for me to learn more about the industry and to make new contacts. I've already got a bunch of meetings set up through the week (why would anyone want to meet me lol but that's my management for you!). They've even made me a member of the Canadian Academy for the Advancement of Music and the Arts (CAAMA)! The details for my showcase haven't been supplied yet but once I know them I'll definitely be sharing them around. I have a whole bunch of lovely relatives in Toronto, and my CrossFitWestMids in England have set me up to visit CrossFit in Toronto while I'm there, so there's every chance I'll have an enthusiastic audience who already know a little about me before I start.

We'll update this page as often as possible but here is a link to the whole event: Canadian Music Week.
