This coming JUNO weekend, Cordova Bay Entertainment Group is celebrating their 20th anniversary inside the Vancouver Art Gallery (by invite only – music industry personnel should contact the Karyzma Agency for invite requests).
Cordova Bay is the label behind Karl Wolf’s recent “Illusion Remix” (featuring Ramsay Almighty).
Founded in 1998 out of Victoria BC, Cordova Bay Entertainment Group began as an independent boutique label, releasing visionary records that helped pave the Canadian music industry.
Over the last 20 years, the label has become one of Canada’s pre-eminent homes for unique and forward-thinking artists, nurturing a roster of genre-bending musicians and bands. Their dedication to Canadian artists has earned them GOLD, PLATINUM and DOUBLE PLATINUM records with Karl Wolf, State of Shock and Raghav, as well as JUNO nominations with Bill Bourne, David Gogo, Bob Lanois, State of Shock and Raghav.
“The last 20 years in the music world have been tumultuous to say the least. However, it’s rewarding to make it through stronger, with the same goals and convictions as when we started. All this is due to a small but talented bunch of people. Who could ask for more?”
– Michael Burke (Founder)
Beyond the numbers and awards, Cordova Bay has been an integral piece in the Canadian music industry for the past 19 years. They head into 2018 looking forward to celebrating 20 years as a Canadian independent record label and music publisher.
“We’ve seen many dramatic changes in the industry over the years, but the one constant has always been our great privilege of working with so many amazing artists.”
– Jocelyn Greenwood (President)

Cordova Bay: Karl Wolf
The phenomenal success of Karl Wolf’s inventive remake of Toto’s “Africa” launched him into the international spotlight, but it definitely wasn’t a case of overnight success. This multi-talented Export has long enjoyed serious peer and music industry respect in worldwide as a producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and singer.
Wolf has established himself as a successful recording artist as well as an entrepreneur and businessman; recording and releasing 6 solo albums prior to The Export Vol. 1.
Wolf says the The Export Vol. 1 is inspired by the journey that took him from his birthplace in war torn Lebanon to his current home in Toronto.
Wolf draws from multiple musical genres, creating a signature style – a seamless blend of R&B, soul, funk and hip-hop – all his own.
