Confidential Records is an entirely student-run record label and events company. Since 1997, Artist Management students at the Harris Institute have been using their newly acquired skills to promote the artists that are managed throughout the course. The final project is a showcase concert in Toronto, with exclusive new recordings.
Confidential Records has proven itself to be an intensive training ground for Canada’s future music industry leaders. Former staff have gone on to hold high level positions at leading record labels, publishing companies, government grant bodies and management companies across the world. No wonder the school has been rated by Billboard magazine as the highest ranking Music Industry School in Canada. Meet the future of your Canadian music industry – come to a Confidential Records showcase event.
On July 20th, Confidential Records is hosting The M.A.P.L. Series. M.A.P.L., a common language used in the Canadian music industry, symbolizes the diversity instilled into Canadian culture.
