(06 November 2014 – Toronto, ON) – Universal Music Canada (UMC), the country’s leading Music Company and acclaimed Toronto based independent record label Six Shooter Records announce that they have entered into a partnership whereby UMC will be the exclusive distributor of Six Shooter’s award winning repertoire.  The deal was announced today by Randy Lennox, President and CEO, Universal Music Canada and Six Shooter Records founder, Shauna de Cartier. The first release to come from this exciting partnership is the new album from Whitehorse, who today announced the 17 February 2015 release of their new album, Leave No Bridge Unburned.  The iTunes pre-order of Leave No Bridge Unburned, complete with instant download of single “Sweet Disaster” starts November 18. “Six Shooter Records has long been synonymous with great music; an artist first label whose commitment to development and community is infectious,” commented Lennox.  “We are honoured to welcome Shauna and the Six Shooter into the Universal Music family and we look forward to working alongside their team for years to come.” For more than a decade, Six Shooter has been part of the Canadian music zeitgeist and boosts an eclectic roster of artists including Whitehorse (Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland), 2014 Polaris Music Prize winner Tanya Tagaq, Juno Award winners Amelia Curran and The Strumbellas, multiple Juno nominees NQ Arbuckle, the Deep Dark Woods and many other talented artists, including Americana imports Shakey Graves and Mary Gauthier. "We're very excited about this new relationship," said de Cartier.  “Randy and his team of absolutely excellent people are going to make a fantastic impact on our company.  We're looking forward to many fruitful years ahead." Six Shooter has been proud to work with some of Canada’s finest musicians, songwriters and unique artistic souls who defy easy classification.  Six Shooter Records works hard to foster artistic development and a strong sense of community, and are driven by the belief that “Life Is Too Short To Listen To Shitty Music.”
