For Immediate Release: August 14, 2014 (Toronto ON) Skylar Entertainment is thrilled to announce Sonic Envy and Curve Music as the Producing Partners for the 4th Annual FILM + MUSIC SOCIAL (FMS14). Both record labels are headed up by music industry veteran Brian Hetherman, who will launch Sonic Envy’s Film & TV music licensing division at FMS14. The invite only event takes place during the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday September 8, 2014 at the Hideout.
“Launching Sonic Envy as a Music Licensing entity and expanding beyond its role as a record label during the Toronto International Film Festival, feels like a natural progression,” says Hetherman. “Joining the Film + Music Social to showcase some of the talented artists we represent to filmmakers and music supervisors is definitely a rare and great opportunity.”
The Curve Music label has been going strong for almost 12 years and has worked with and developed the careers of Suzie McNeil, Holly McNarland, Peter Katz, Garth Hudson (The Band) and the Dunes. In 2012 Curve Music made the full transition into a Country and Roots Music label with the launch of country singer Lindsay Broughton and Jack Connolly, as well as re-releases by Canadian Country music icon Joel Feeney. For the Rock and Alternative leanings Sonic Envy launched with the signing of local indie-Rockers The Corner.
