Canada’s Music Incubator Now Accepting Applications For Summer And Fall 2018

Canada’s Music Incubator is now accepting applications for their late summer and fall 2018 offerings of Artist Entrepreneur (Aug/Sept) and Artist Manager (Oct/Nov) in Toronto, ON. Both programs help emerging artists and artist managers across all genres build their businesses and careers through customized mentorship and professional development.

Artists and managers work hands-on with CMI and their robust network of trusted music industry professionals to develop their business, craft and confidence in the areas of revenue development, marketing, branding, social media, publicity, streaming, radio, copyright, promotion, touring, funding, team building, contracts and more. Artists will also experience an in-depth suite of creative workshops, including live and studio performance, vocals and songwriting collaborations.

“What stuck out to me about Artist Entrepreneur,” says award-winning artist, IsKwé, “wasn’t just the learning experience, but the relationships that were built—both with the team at CMI and within the broader music industry.  Everyone was really invested in helping the artists build their business, and that’s not always easy to find in this industry!”

Scottie Irving, Ottawa-based artist manager reflects, “When I started managing artists, I had nothing but hopes, hunches, and assumptions. Artist Manager helped me organize the chaos by giving me access to priceless knowledge, proven expertise and informed advice. It saved me from having to learn countless things the hard way.”

“Success is defined by the artist or manager,” says Vel Omazic, CMI’s executive director, “we exist as an organization to help them, regardless of genre or style, to bring focus to their goals and to provide them with the tools, processes and support needed to fill the gaps in their business and creative development.”

Ongoing access to CMI mentors and industry resources for artists and managers is included, at no additional cost, as a part of both programs.

Space for both sessions is limited.  Apply online today!
