True North: A Life Inside
the Music Business
with Bernie Finkelstein

Hosted by Ken Rockburn
"A fast-paced, fascinating tour of the tumultuous birth of the Canadian music industry, by an insider who knows the business and the personalities better than anyone else. Gripping, gritty and gracefully written -- it doesn't get better than this.
— Robert Charles Wilson, Hugo Award-winning author of Spin

Join us as one of the all-time greats in Canadian music recounts his life and times in the business from the 1960s to the present. Producer, record label owner, and manager of great singer/songwriters and bands, Bernie Finkelstein, recipient of the 2006 Juno Special Achievement Award, has played a pivotal role in bringing great Canadian music to the rest of the world.

 

Bernie Finkelstein has been a prominent figure in the Canadian music industry for nearly five decades. Now, a couple years after selling his beloved True North label and only recently stepping down from his role at MuchFACT, which has given out more than $63 million in grants to Grammy-winning acts like Sarah McLachlan, Nelly Furtado and Arcade Fire, Bernie is finally ready to talk. In his wildly entertaining and outspoken memoir, Bernie opens up about his childhood, breaking into the Greenwich Village scene with The Paupers at age 19, discovering Bruce Cockburn, producing the "loudest band in the world," Kensington Market, managing and producing Murray McLauchlan, Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, and Rough Trade, winning 40 Junos, and much more.
