Six Shooter Management is ecstatic to welcome July Talk to the roster. “We have been following July Talk for years as both friends and fans,” says Six Shooter’s Shauna de Cartier. “We love their music, we align with their social and political views, and we adore them as people. We are over the moon to be working with this band.”
Fresh from a North American tour with Metric, July Talk now readies for their third full-length album via Sleepless Records/Universal Music Canada. “We’re thrilled to be starting a new management relationship with our longtime friends and allies Shauna, Helen and Emily at Six Shooter,” says the band. “We’re grateful to Alex Bonenfant and Nightmare Management for their integral role in our project’s formation and progress, and we look forward to a continued and fruitful relationship with Sleepless Records.”
Since 2012, July Talk has risen with purpose and poise. Three sold out nights at Massey Hall to close out 2017 made an undeniable statement about the band’s potency and community. July Talk has also grown as mentors and allies of an urgent and fundamental industry recalibration. From the New Constellations tour and recording project with high school students in Thunder Bay to curatorial partnerships with festivals to creating safe spaces at rock shows, July Talk is working to build community, raise resistance and advance equality.
Helmed by Helen Britton, Six Shooter Management’s roster now includes July Talk, Tanya Tagaq, The Dead South, Whitehorse, William Prince, Zaki Ibrahim, Rheostatics, Ensign Broderick and Riit. The management company is defined by the creative excellence of these distinguished artists, each on their own unique paths to success and acclaim.
