CIMA President Stuart Johnston recently asked Ian MacKay, President of Re: Sound Music Licensing Company, to discuss his organization’s work on behalf of artists and record companies, and how independent labels can ensure they are compensated for their performance rights. Johnston is a member of Re: Sound’s board of directors, representing Canada’s independent music community.


What followed is an enlightening account of how the rights collective has evolved from a relatively small royalties’ collection agency into a big money earner for its rights stakeholders that include musicians and record labels. Re:Sound has also become a world-leader in data collection and in its last reported fiscal processed 1.8B sound recording performances (plays).

Tanya Tagaq Plays a Pivotal Role in 'True Detective' Season Finale

The Inuk artist provides vocals for the HBO series' soundtrack, and her song "Submerged" scores a pivotal moment in the season finale, in which she appears as an actress.

The new season of True Detective wrapped up this weekend, and timed with the tense final episode, HBO also released the show's gripping soundtrack. Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq, one of the most celebrated contemporary musicians in Canada, contributed to seven songs on the soundtrack as well as making appearances in the show herself.

Subtitled Night Country, the fourth season of the HBO detective show takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska. It stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, two police officers trying to figure out how the recent bizarre deaths of six scientists are linked to the murder of Iñupiaq activist Annie Kowtok. Through its mystery framing, the show explores themes like colonial violence, environmental destruction, and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
