YouRockRed has been providing consultation and related music services since 2013. Founder Samantha Everts-Matusoff began her career in music 14 years ago by booking punk bands as a teenager in Western Quebec. A Carleton University and University of Nottingham graduate (English and Film), she began working shortly after as an arts journalist with Metro News and Xtra in Ottawa. Samantha worked her way up in college and FM radio, indie labels, festival management, promotional marketing, and any other means to understand the full spectrum of the Canadian music world.

I have worked with Sam on several projects, from live event management to grant applications and she really knows the ins and outs of the music industry. Any artist, band or label will benefit from checking out her new website.
On training the next generation of the music industry, she taught Artist Management & Communications courses at Trebas Institute from 2016-17.
Samantha joined the team at Coalition Music Records/Management in mid-2017 as the funding manager responsible for supporting roster acts and projects including USS, Our Lady Peace, Scott Helman, Justin Nozuka, and more.
“I will never tire of helping out artists; whether they are recording their debut album or touring Europe for a second or third time. Helping people develop their music and find their audience is the best feeling. I love being able to help new and established artists reach a bigger audience that will appreciate their music and believe in it as much as I do.”
