MIKE DENNEY is President of MDM Recordings Inc., an independent recording company founded in 2008 and located in Toronto. One of his biggest dreams for his artists is to help enhance their success by securing them international recognition, and he has made this goal a priority. “My mission is to support, help nurture and grow the careers of the numerous artists that I work with on a day in and day out basis. I want to help them achieve their goals and dreams, while achieving mine with theirs.”

A 25 year veteran of the music industry, Mike believes that being passionate and success-driven about music (or anything that you do) supersedes wanting a large pay check and material advances. “I have always been very driven to succeed. Years ago it was material things, now it’s a passion for what I do.”

What he looks for in new artists is simple, “I want to represent talent that can really play and perform from their core, their true soul,” he explains. “I want artists that are hard-working and driven by the music, inspired to constantly perfect their craft. To me this is the true definition of talent.”

Mike's current roster includes artists that are having great success in country music: Jess Moskaluke, Bobby Wills, Chad Brownlee, and The Lovelocks. 

At this year's CCMAs (Canadian Country Music Association Awards) in September, Mike is a nominee for Record Person of The Year and MDM Recordings is nominated for Record Company of The Year and Management Company of The Year.
