Come Together: Canada’s Coast-to-Coast Artist Showcases & Industry Mingler in Toronto
Artists from across Canada are converging in Toronto this month for a celebration of live music at the Come Together showcases and industry meetings.
Ten music industry associations -- Alberta Music, Music BC, CIMA, Manitoba Music, Music New Brunswick, Music NL, Music Nova Scotia, Music Ontario, SODEC Quebec, and Sask Music, plus Collective Arts Brewing -- have joined forces to get on stage and reconnect in person with fans, industry, and other artists.
The showcases will run November 14 at the Melody Bar at the Gladstone Hotel and the following evening at Dine Alone Records, featuring performances from a dozen acclaimed artists including award winners and international touring acts. The artists from Manitoba joining this year’s lineup include hip hop artist Anthony OKS and punk duo Mobina Galore. Other artists hitting the stage include Clay and Friends and SORAN from Quebec, Ellen Froese from Saskatchewan, IAMTHELIVING and Nicky MacKenzie from British Columbia, Julie Doiron from New Brunswick, Keeper E. from Nova Scotia, Kellie Loder from Newfoundland & Labrador, and Miesha and The Spanks and Shaela Miller from Alberta.
Come Together will also feature afternoons of business events between the showcasing artists, their representatives, and Toronto-based industry and music companies.
This year’s event follows up a successful reemergence into live music in 2021, which captured the importance of in-person connection and the energy of performances live on stage.
This project is made possible by the generous support from FACTOR through the financial support of the Government of Canada and Canada's private radio broadcasters, Government of Manitoba, Manitoba Film & Music, and FACTOR Canada, Government of Alberta, Creative BC, Government of British Columbia, Government of Nova Scotia, and Creative Saskatchewan
