Laurie A. Gelfand, Barrister and Solicitor
I provide legal and business affairs services to creative entrepreneurs in the music industry.
My roster includes singers, songwriters, musicians, performing artists, record labels, music managers, agents, publicists, promoters, producers and podcasters. I regularly conclude deals in all major music territories and have worked on multi-million dollar projects involving Rage Against the Machine, Nickelback, Rush, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Alter Bridge, Steve Miller and Kenny Chesney. New and established music clients include Canadians Holly Cole, Big Wreck, Michael Kaeshammer, Kim Mitchell, Steven Page, Teenage Head, Mother Mother, Corb Lund, cleopatrick, mico and dee holt as well as American Hip Hop icon, Raekwon and producers alo905 and krupa (Grandson).
I managed the career of super busy touring/recording artist Natalie MacMaster, gaining valuable insight into the challenges facing artists, as well as team building and project management skills.
I am former chair and current board member of SONG, a non-profit that brings music education and experiences to youth in my community. I initiated annual fundraising concerts bringing in Canadian touring artists to the small town of Port Hope and creating mentoring opportunities for our youth.
Working with the support of sponsors and community partners, I was a key member of the team that brought The Tragically Hip to the small town of Cobourg and a multi-year multi-day outdoor music festival to Keene ON.
I love my work.
