Black Bear Records

Black Bear Records is an independent record label owned by Peter D'Amico that has been operating in Calgary since 1982.

As a member of the Boxer group of companies, Black Bear Records is supported by Boxer Studios Digital Audio - a recording studio - and Boxer Arts Management, which represents a select group of performing artists.

Black Bear takes responsibility for coordination of distribution and enforcement of copyright protection.

The artists on Black Bear's label have each worked with Boxer Studios for recording, engineering and production.

All of the artists on Black Bear write and record their own original music. Our music library includes instrumental music, country and contemporary music, rock and roll, blues and world music.

A large proportion of our library is devoted to First Nations artists, and we've developed a strong understanding of Canadian styles and culteral distinctions.

Black Bear has also worked with motivational speakers and teaching professionals to create audio training tools.

For a musician, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of accomplishment when the physical product comes back from the pressing plant and gets sent out into the commercial wild to begin its journey toward actual people’s ears and hearts. The same good feeling happens when the digital product goes up the wire onto the various web-based music vendors.

Awards

'Live at Phoenicia', a jazz album by Big Miller, was nominated for a Juno award.

At the 2007 Aboriginal People’s Choice Awards, Peter and Dallas, aka Kray Z Kree, won the Best Producer/Engineer award for 'REZalationzzz...'.

In 2008, Dallas Arcand’s CD 'Picking Sweetgrass' won for Best Flute CD and Best Instrumental CD, again at the Aboriginal People’s Choice Awards. The album was also named Best Flute CD at the Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards in Toronto.

All these projects were produced and engineered by Peter, who also co-wrote most of the songs for 'REZalationzzz...' and 'Picking Sweetgrass' with Dallas.

Music Rights

For My Lady Music is our own clearing house to register publishing rights with SOCAN to protect your rights as songwriter and ensure you receive royalty payments.

Because music is a time-based art – very different from, say, painting or writing or architecture – it’s easy to think of it as just being here today, gone tomorrow. But published songs are forever. They are preserved by Library & Archives Canada and become essentially a permanent part of our culture.

When a tune becomes a hit for some other artist or gets used in a TV commercial 40 years from now, the songwriter still gets paid for the public’s additional enjoyment of the cultural value the writer created.

For more information, contact Peter D'Amico at 403 230 0331.
