About Terry McBride

The Insider - - JOURNALISM -

Terry McBride is the CEO and co-founder of Net­twerk Mu­sic Group, which in­cludes Canada’s largest in­de­pen­dent record la­bel, artist man­age­ment and mu­sic pub­lish­ing com­pany. Founded in McBride’s apart­ment in 1984, Net­twerk has cor­po­rate of­fices world­wide in Van­cou­ver, Lon­don, Ham­burg, Bos­ton, Nashville, Los An­ge­les and New York. Since its in­cep­tion, Net­twerk has re­leased over 600 dif­fer­ent al­bums and sold over 160 mil­lion al­bums world­wide with renowned artists such as Cold­play, Fun, Pas­sen­ger, Dido, and Sarah McLach­lan. McBride has spo­ken at dozens of in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ences about so­cial mar­ket­ing, dig­i­tal brand­ing, in­tel­lec­tual prop­erty rights and the fu­ture of mu­sic con­sump­tion. In 2008 he coau­thored a broad reach­ing fu­tur­is­tic pa­per on the Mil­len­nial Gen­er­a­tion for the Univer­sity of West­min­ster in Lon­don, UK. He is a two time re­cip­i­ent of the Poll­star Man­ager of year for his work with Avril Lav­i­gne, Cold­play and Sarah McLach­lan. He is also a re­cip­i­ent of the Juno Awards “Spe­cial achieve­ment award” for the growth and ad­vance­ment of the Cana­dian Mu­sic In­dus­try.

In 2004, McBride stepped onto a yoga mat for the first time by way of rec­om­men­da­tion from a friend, and it wasn’t long be­fore he re­al­ized that yoga of­fered him more than just a flex­i­ble body and mind.

Act­ing on this re­al­iza­tion, McBride along with his friend and yoga in­struc­tor, Lara Kozan, co­founded a chain of well­ness cen­ters called YYoga. It’s McBride’s vi­sion for YYoga Stu­dios to evolve into so­cial third spa­ces, fo­cus­ing on health, fit­ness and well­ness for the body, mind, spirit and the com­mu­nity. Terry is also a long-time sup­porter, E-Se­ries speaker, and re­cip­i­ent of the 2015 FWE Men­tor Award.
