ArtHaus Music

As an artist manager and label executive, Sandy Pandya forged her own path through the unique landscape of the Canadian music industry. A leader beloved by her colleagues, she mastered the art of turning “no” into “yes” while advancing the careers of the artists she represented. A short list of her notable clients includes Doc McKinney, Serena Ryder, Jully Black, Tegan and Sara, Adria Kain and TALK.

Today, Sandy leads ArtHaus Media Inc. a company she launched in 2018 with Serena Ryder, andthe not-for-profit ArtHaus Community. Building on pillars of community, collaboration, and culture, ArtHaus endeavours to provide emerging artists and creatives with accessibility and pay-it-forward opportunities, and accommodation with affordable housing initiatives, and more. One example is the Art of Growth — a professional and personal development series for young
artists and creative professionals encompassing education, mentorship, and mental wellness.

Another is the ArtHaus Café — a pop-up coffee and concert series offering paid performances to young artists and raising funds for mental health programming through ArtHaus's Art of Darkness specialty dark roast coffee. In addition to these kinds of initiatives, ArtHaus opens its doors to numerous workshops and events each year led by young, diverse artists and entrepreneurs.

ArtHaus remains accessible to emerging and seasoned artists and professionals. As one of the few Canadian music companies led by a woman of colour, ArtHaus is committed to empowering artists from traditionally underrepresented groups. Raising a generation of people who create holistic, sustainable businesses that in turn lift the next generation.
