Home » Labels » Nettwerk


Established in 1984, the Vancouver-based company was originally created by Nettwerk principals Terry McBride, Mark Jowett, Ric Arboit and Dan Fraser, as a record label to distribute recordings by the band Moev, but the label quickly expanded in Canada and internationally, ultimately becoming one of the largest and most influential independent record labels in the world. Initially specializing in electronic music genres such as alternative dance and industrial, the label also became a powerful player in pop and rock in the late 1980s and 1990s, with label and management clients including Coldplay, Sarah McLachlan, Dido, and Barenaked Ladies.

Today, Nettwerk continues to achieve critical and commercial success with label, management and publishing rosters, including Perfume Genius, The Veils, fun., Passenger, Christina Perri, Guster, Family of the Year and Ólafur Arnalds
