New Signing: Forward Music Group

In the far East of Canada, amongst the forests of the Saint John River valley rose a music community of musicians and friends in the province of New Brunswick. The Forward Music Group began as a label with a small collection of bands in 2007 and quickly had released 12 albums within its first two years. Now with 34 releases from over 13 artists and offices in both Halifax and Fredericton, they have entered the international scene and helped put Atlantic Canada on the map as a vibrant source of music.

The latest release from Forward comes from Paper Beat Scissors whose self titled album is out on the 2nd December.

Founded by James Boyle, Kyle Cunjak, and Zach Atkinson in 2006, the label initially provided professional representation for Canadian Maritimes musical acts, particularly those who find it difficult or impossible to release their music through the area’s conventional channels.
