Getting the Word Out

Re:Sound is committed to delivering more money to rights holders in a transparent and efficient manner.  Re:Sound is a valued sponsor and partner to many music industry initiatives and events. These forums allow us to educate music creators about the royalty streams available to them and the options for assigning their rights. This helps to ensure music creators receive royalties from the businesses that use their recordings.

In 2018, Re:Sound had a presence at Pop Montreal, Durham College, Canadian Music Incubator, CIMA (Canadian Independent Music Association), Canadian Country Music Awards, Polaris Music Prize, M4MTRL, Canadian Music Week, and The Juno Awards and the Women in Music Canada panel.

We continually strive to improve the way we do things. With this in mind, we worked with our member organizations to develop final distribution schedules for royalty payments. This provides music creators with greater transparency and allows them to know when they can expect their royalties.

2018 Re:Sound Achievement Awards


Re:Sound employees live by our Core Values and for the second consecutive year, Phil was recognized by his peers for his outstanding approach to his work and his unwavering commitment to our Fair, Maker and Performer Centered and Dynamic Core Values. Phil negotiated agreements with key music users to drive revenue and initiated an employee fitness program with another important music user.  At trade shows, Phil told the Re:Sound story, explaining how royalties work to music creators. He also performs at Re:Wind, Re:Sound’s annual fundraising event, each year.
