“What stuck out to me about Artist Entrepreneur,” says award-winning artist, IsKwé, “wasn’t just the learning experience, but the relationships that were built-both with the team at CMI and within the broader music industry. Everyone was really invested in helping the artists build their business, and that’s not always easy to find in this industry!”
Scottie Irving, Ottawa-based artist manager reflects, “When I started managing artists, I had nothing but hopes, hunches, and assumptions. Artist Manager helped me organize the chaos by giving me access to priceless knowledge, proven expertise and informed advice. It saved me from having to learn countless things the hard way.”
“Success is defined by the artist or manager,” says Vel Omazic, CMI’s executive director, “we exist as an organization to help them, regardless of genre or style, to bring focus to their goals and to provide them with the tools, processes and support needed, on an ongoing basis, to fill the gaps in their business and creative development.”
