“We are proud to be expanding to Vancouver. I feel that some of the most artistic, forward thinking bands and artists are in this city. We look forward to collaborating with them. We aim to connect bands and artists with the right people (publicists, booking agents, radio programmers, music supervisors, labels, management) to help build a collaborative support team, and work along side artists to offer guidance in using the tools they are awarded through the events.” says LME founder Arthur Kalimidis.
LME’s goal is to expose artists to professionals from established companies such as Warner Music, Milagro Records, Whammo/Universal, Sony Records, Indica Records, Underground Operations, MTV Canada, S.L.
