Sebastien Nasra

M for Montreal, Avalanche Productions
Montreal, QC, Canada
Founder and president of Avalanche Productions, artist manager and music publisher, Sébastien Nasra has launched the international careers of renowned artists such as JORANE, LES RESPECTABLES, SOUL ATTORNEYS, PROJET ORANGE, TAIMA, PLASTER, ELISAPIE ISAAC, and the trip-hop duo BEAST. In 2006, he founded M for Montreal with the help of his friend Martin Elbourne (festival programmer for the Glastonbury Festival, organizer for The Great Escape and co-founder along with Peter Gabriel of the WOMAD Festival). Since then, the organization has travelled across the world to present showcases in Los Angeles, Austin (SXSW) and in the UK. In the summer of 2008, Nasra put another feather in his cap by becoming the artistic director and general manager of Vega Music, a label created in partnershipwith Bob Ezrin and Universal Music Canada. As a music publisher, Sébastien has been part of the administration council at SOCAN for 5 years.
