“Music BC was crucial in the early years of my career. I received $600 in funding for my first ever tour in March of 2006. It was a run of solo shows in BC and Alberta in my mom’s Subaru. The tour, coincidentally, lost about $600. Whether via grant funding or just by attending their panels and events, I received a lot of support, information, and an open door into the local music industry/community. Trying to make a living in the arts is a slightly absurd idea, and associations like Music BC help make it possible.”
Alexis Young of Youngblood:
“Being a member of Music BC has been an integral part of our growth as band. Not only have they provided us with funding to play some amazing showcases at home and abroad, but they have helped us make connections in an industry that can feel like an exclusive club. It is apparent that the team genuinely wants to support and develop artists. We are incredibly thankful for their support and kindness!”
Dyllan Towle – Project Manager Light Organ Records / Simkin Artist Management
“Music BC has been, and continues to be, a reliable partner in the development of our roster of artists and the dissemination of the quality Canadian music that we strive to present on an ever-growing scale. The organization’s expertise in connecting the provincial music community both together and with other culturally rich regions in Canada and beyond has allowed 604 Records/Light Organ Records added opportunity to achieve these goals.”
