HALO Entertainment Group and Warner Music Canada are excited to announce a Canadian distribution partnership whereby WMC will be the exclusive distributer for HALO Entertainment Group.
HALO Entertainment Group is a Canadian entertainment and music company offering artist management, label and publishing services with offices in both Toronto and Nashville. Spearheaded by multi-platinum entertainer Johnny Reid and business partners Craig MacAdam and Tracey Wilder, HALO is an artist first label with a strong commitment to artistic development and creative vision.
The first release to come from this exciting partnership is the debut full-length album from Roots Rocker JJ Shiplett in October.
“We here at Warner Music Canada are extremely excited to partner with HALO in shining a light on exciting new talent,” said Steve Kane, President, Warner Music Canada. “Johnny and his team’s vision for HALO is inspiring and launching our partnership with a talent as unique as JJ Shiplett bodes extremely well for the future.”
Shiplett spent the earlier part of the year as direct support for Reid on the 47 show, 35 cities “What Love Is All About Tour”. He quickly gained momentum with the release of “The E.P.” – a perfect testament to his range and depth as an artist, and a record that couples outstanding songwriting, showcases the Alberta-born artist’s musical creativity, and celebrates his honest lyricism backed by his powerful and unique voice. Often compared to Chris Stapleton and Bruce Springsteen, Shiplett has already captured the attention of music fans across the country, and under the watchful eye of HALO Entertainment Group and Warner Music Canada, he is destined for great things.
