And the 2018 Indigenous Music Residency participants are …

New name, same incredible opportunities.

Since its inception in 2006, the Indigenous Music Residency (formerly known as AMP Camp) has helped fill a long-existing gap in the national music scene by providing indigenous artists an opportunity to hone their skills and develop sustainable careers in Manitoba’s music industry. Over the years, some pretty big names have attended the camp, including Don Amero, Drezus, Cris Derksen, and Iskwé, all of whom have gone on to release albums, win awards and successfully make music their full-time careers.

Hosted by Manitoba Music and the Canada Council for the Arts, the week-long residency gives emerging and mid-career Indigenous recording artists an opportunity to develop their business skills and expand their artistic abilities. It includes sessions on everything from music production and royalties to social media management and touring, and allows participants to connect one-on-one with the various faculty members.

This year’s stacked faculty includes artist entrepreneurs Alida Kinnie Starr, Billy Simard, David Landreth of the Bros. Landreth, Doug Cox, Joanne Pollock, Leela Gilday, Leonard Sumner and Rae Spoon, along with NCI FM’s Dave McLeod, RPM’s Jarrett Martineau, eOne Music Canada’s Jay Devonish, touring manager/musician MJ Dandeneau, audio engineer Matt Mayor, producer Rusty Matyas and social media strategist Vanessa Cito.

The week-long residency will kick off Jan. 28 at Falcon Trails Resort in southern Manitoba. The 20 participants are:
