Music Canada and CONNECT Music Licensing launch National Artist Entrepreneur Survey

Music Canada and CONNECT Music Licensing launch National Artist Entrepreneur Survey

By External Source

Music Canada and CONNECT Music Licensing invite artists to share their insights and experiences in a new national survey that focuses on artists’ business needs in an ever-changing music economy.


The two Canadian music organizations have partnered to conduct research in response to changing trends in the music ecosystem in which artists increasingly operate as business owners, often referred to as “artist-preneurs.” The project kicked off earlier this spring with an environmental scan conducted through a series of focus groups with artists and industry leaders.

Survey findings will be used to guide the design and delivery of a pilot artist entrepreneur program later this year.

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.
