“Artists of today can be inspired by the past, but they have to apply present methods if they want a future in music.”

About MADE

Where Artists Come to Develop Themselves


Music & Artist Development Experience (MADE) is a federally registered not-for-profit artist and music creator incubator in Ontario, Canada that creates opportunities for the personal, professional and artistic development of independent singers, songwriters and performers.

Founded in 2014, MADE hosts a variety of events throughout the calendar year focused on providing aspiring talent with opportunities to grow in their understanding of the music business. MADE partners with industry professionals and influencers to act as mentors and organizations like Canadian Music Week, SOCAN, Music Canada, FACTOR and others to enhance the hands-on, how-to approach that MADE believes is so incredibly valuable to an artist or music creator’s success.

MADE’s flagship program The Shot has discovered and supported artists that have gone on to gain more than 800,000 streams on Spotify, performances at Boots and Hearts, NXNE, Ottawa Bluesfest, opening act slots for Jim Cuddy, Tyler Shaw, Buffy Saint-Marie, and Our Lady Peace, and radio and television appearances including season 2 of CTV’s The Launch.

“We are at a crossroads in the music business: with the rise of the Internet, the world we live in has changed, and the past is not coming back. But I see the glass as half-full: the Internet and social networking are new avenues for the next Bob Dylan to be born on.”
