Re:Sound People

Re:Sound is proud to have a diverse, multilingual staff - many of whom are musicians themselves. We are dedicated to making the world a better place, and serving rights holders across Canada. In 2017, Re:Sound staff continued to give back to the community. We held our 5th annual staff-run benefit concert, Re:Wind. It raised $32,000 for the Unison Benevolent Fund - our largest donation to date!

Re:Sound Gives Back

We held our annual holiday food drive, raising over 250 lbs of canned items for the Daily Bread Food Bank, and participated in the Big Bike Ride for the Heart & Stroke Foundation, where we raised $4,224. We spoke at and sponsored numerous conferences and events across Canada, including the Canadian Music Incubator, Durham College, Pop Montreal, and Canadian Country Music Awards. We had a busy year, with a motivated team to help keep us going.
