_____________________________________________________

Terry McBride is one of the three founding owners of Canada's Largest Independent Record Label, Nettwerk Productions. Started in Terry's small apartment in 1984, with partners Mark Jowett and Ric Arboit, Nettwerk Productions has grown rapidly and today has major corporate offices in Vancouver, New York, London and Los Angeles.

In 1996, Terry McBride with partners Sarah McLachlan, Dan Fraser and Marty Diamond founded one of the most prolific and eclectic concert tours of the 1990's "Lilith Fair". The concept of an all female headline traveling concert tour was unheard of, but from 1997 to 1999 "Lilith Fair" changed the music business forever. Not only was "Lilith Fair" the dominant tour of its time, it changed the radio business, launched musical careers and in the process "Lilith Fair" raised over 10 million dollars for various woman's charities. Lilith Fair was a 3 year plan from the start and true to its original concept wrapped up in 1999, but its verdana is still being felt today.

 

Nettwerk Management exclusive clients include such multi-million selling artists as, Avril Lavigne, Barenaked Ladies, Dido, Sarah McLachlan and Sum 41. In the year 2000,  Nettwerk Management expanded it's roster to include Producers/Mixers and DJS and now has a client list of over 40 world renowned professionals including Howard Benson (POD), Cliff Magnus (Avril Lavigne), Randy Staub (Nickelback, Metallica) and Mark Trombino (Blink 182, Jimmy Eat World)

 

Since its inception Nettwerk Productions has been responsible for the release of over 400 different albums that have amassed worldwide sales in excess of 100 million albums. With multiple #1 albums and singles throughout the world Nettwerk has grown from a small Vancouver Record Label into an International Musical powerhouse.
