S P A C E S

S P A C E S is a company that lends itself to helping business and home owners choose music that can create the atmosphere they are looking for.  S P A C E S wants to introduce you to independent Canadian Music.


Unsurprisingly, people are more inclined to desire a product that has been advertised in conjunction with music they enjoy than one that has been paired with unappealing music or no music at all. Consumers are also more likely to buy products when the music used to advertise them is aligned with the product. These effects work for both individual products and entire brands. (1)



S P A C E S wants to help you get the atmosphere you're searching for out of your "space" . Whether your space is a restaurant, art gallery, retail  store, office or even your own home,  S P A C E S can take your area and turn in into a place people want to visit.  

S P A C E S has a wide range of very eclectic and beautiful music, much of it independent and much of it Canadian.   We hope you agree that supporting Canadian Independent music is a great way to make your space more original.

Should you wish to have S P A C E S come to your "space" and do an assessment, if you would simply like to hear a few of Spaces clever playlists or simply have a question regarding packages

Multiple award winner, and now a recent JUNO Award Nominee, recording artist Peter Katz captivates listeners with his unique brand of contemporary folk music.
