Nova Scotian-based Sound of Pop has signed a sub-publishing agreement with New York-based boutique production house Figure and Groove for representation here.


Founded in 2001, Sound of Pop (SOP) is an award-winning Music Publishing and Master/Sync representation company with a growing catalogue of over 1000 songs by Canadian artists/songwriters including Chris Kirby, Fairgale, Quote the Raven, Brianna Gosse, Chris Ryan, FM Berlin, Candice Sand, and Coco Love Alcorn.

SOP also represents international acts Kidneythieves (US), Voltaire Twins (Australia) and Bettie Serveert (Netherlands) for sync.

Sound of Pop’s Tim Hardy said: “It’s amazing how these things get started. The process began at a meeting with a music biz friend in London, England who subsequently suggested Sound of Pop to another UK colleague of hers who was looking for a Canadian sub-publisher for one of his New York-based clients. After a few emails & Skype calls, we all agreed it was a great fit and signed the agreement on July 1st, Canada Day."

Happy Anniversary, Archie: Alvvays' Debut Record Gets a 10th Birthday Re-Issue

The Canadian jangle pop group's first album will be available on a new cerulean blue vinyl with an unearthed bonus track, as well as the ten original songs — including breakout single 'Archie, Marry Me' — that launched their career in 2014.

A major Canadian indie rock album turns 10 today (July 22), and the band is celebrating with a special re-issue.

Alvvays' self-titled debut helped the group break through on an international scale, propelled by jangly guitars, aloof vocals and an expertly catchy single. "Archie, Marry Me," with its soaring chorus and pleading lyrics, became a wedding song for a generation of ambivalent millennials, earnest and sardonic at the same time.
