Deane Cameron's Family Selects MusiCounts For Donations In His Memory

The beloved Canadian music industry leader can be remembered by donations to the music education charity that was close to his heart.

Deane Cameron's Family Selects MusiCounts For Donations In His Memory

By Karen Bliss

In memory of Deane Cameron, those who would like to honour the music man who mentored so many in the Canadian music industry and signed such artists as Anne Murray, Nickelback, Tom Cochrane, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Stompin’ Tom Connors, Serena Ryder, and The Tea Party, can donate to MusiCounts , “which the family holds close to heart,” it reads on his memorial page.


Cameron was a founder, contributor, and donor to MusiCounts and served on the advisory committee for over 20 years

The president and CEO of The Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto since 2015 — who spent the majority of his career at EMI Music Canada where he was president for 24 years — was at his cottage at Eagle Lake in northern Ontario when he suffered a heart attack May 16 while walking in the woods. He was 65.

“Some charities have a web site that you can visit by clicking on the charity logo or name. After making a donation, you can return to this page to notify the Family and Friends by clicking ‘Submit Donation Notification’ and filling out the form,” it reads on Turner & Porter.

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 on 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.
