Canadian Music Week 2014 Photos- Stars, July Talk, ATCR, Operators…

There are so many thank-you notes and emails that must be sent after the whirlwind that was the last week in Toronto at Canadian Music Week.

However, because Ottawa Rock Lottery is upon me essentially meaning this is my busiest week of the year photos will have to suffice for now.

Big shout-out to Audio Blood and the amazing support team that put on Canadian Music Week. I learned so so much and met some incredible industry and artists that I’m truly looking forward to working with in the future.  Also Amanda Palmer is my new personal hero.
