Winnipeg label/management company Pipe & Hat nominated for Best Indie Label at 2014 WCMAs
MapleMusic Recordings is excited to announce a joint services deal with Pipe & Hat, the Winnipeg-based label/artist management company/recording studio.
With a growing roster that includes the acclaimed guitar-pop outfit Fast Romantics, and alt-country chanteuse Jess Reimer, Pipe & Hat recently earned a Best Indie Label nomination for the 2014 Western Canadian Music Awards to be handed out Oct. 5.
Both of these acts will showcase at this year’s North By Northeast Festival in Toronto, with Jess Reimer previewing tracks from upcoming LP, ‘The Nightjar & The Garden.’
Tony Tarleton, general manager of MapleMusic Recordings and Fontana North Label and Artist Services, says, “In recognizing Pipe & Hat’s five years of being in business, it was only natural for us to look for an opportunity as their distribution partner in Canada, to help them grow their business for the next five years and beyond. By leaning in together sharing services and expertise, we feel we can accomplish that goal. We see Jess Reimer’s stunning new record as the perfect jump-off point.”
Tim Jones, founder of Pipe & Hat and head of label relations and artist development, says, “We’ve come a long way in five years, but still have a lot further to go. Our relationship with MapleMusic/Fontana North has been a wonderful one full of success, and we anticipate that delving deeper into that partnership will allow us to expand our brand and our reach like never before. The team at MapleCore share our true love of music, and we’re proud to be releasing Jess Reimer’s new record, a true work of art, as our first release in this new joint services commitment.”
