Driven by a passion for the arts

A note from Christine

Remedy Music is a branch of my active, flourishing artistic and business lifestyle. I am highly driven by a passion for the arts, as well as the artist’s devoting their lives to art creation. Every year I spend innovating in business propels me into a deeper commitment and dedication to the people of Saskatoon and Saskatchewan. This is my home; this is my extended family.

The Remedy Music Label, along with Remedy Music School are defined reflections of the love I have for music and its capacity to impact our everyday lives, especially in relation to mental health. I am devoted to giving my time, creative energy, and innovation to ensuring that music and the arts have a vibrant, tangible essence in my city and province.

A sound junkie and music enthusiast

A note from Clark

Prior to turning my focus to the local arts community, I was a project manager geologist for a mining company where I led a diverse team of people in Northern Saskatchewan. I have used the leadership skills I built through my career when working with Remedy Music School, and while doing so I’ve discovered that I can offer my experiences to local artists while assisting the process of making the music of their lives.

I have been a sound junkie and music enthusiast for as long as I can remember. I was strongly influenced by the music of my youth and spent a lot of time and effort discovering new music from a very young age. I am highly motivated by furthering my musical knowledge as I dive into music production, recording, mixing, and videography. Over time, I have come to realize that these skills come naturally to me, so I feel excited to see what the future brings through my hands on work with the sound of Remedy Music. I look forward to even more growth in my own musical diversity.

Christine has made an impact on so many people’s lives through her musical essence. Even though I know there will be challenges, I am excited about working alongside her as I devote my energy to the people of our community and music as a Remedy.

Music and sound are a playground

A note from Christine and Clark

We have been engrossed in the experience of Music as a Remedy since early summer 2021. Every day of our work week is strategically given to the wise, calculated investment of time into what is producing the results we use to evaluate music for mental well-being. Music’s ability to impact the human experience drives all of our research, analytics, and teaching in hands-on environments.

Establishing the Remedy Music Label in the fall of 2022 happened naturally. We knew it was time to do something significant for art, for Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and for its artists. Our definition of ART is Authentic Roots Truth, Remedy Music reflects this in every aspect of what we do. We believe your authenticity as an artist is directly connected to your honesty with yourself through the creation and performance of your art. Your one-of-a-kind sound is like an eye or fingerprint that can only be yours. In a copy-reproduce entertainment industry, our label stands as a thriving, socially conscious and contributing force of artists that are FREE to shape the art of their lives within unforgettable, original sound.

We are heavily invested in the SOUND of Remedy. We present sound experiences through live art performances, as well as live-off-the-floor recordings. The music videos we release are recorded both in studio and in varied outdoor environments throughout the seasons of the year, in Saskatchewan and across Western Canada as the label tours. Music and sound are a playground you can visit anytime, anywhere. We play with music; it plays with us.
