Toronto, Canada – Pop Music artist Michael Dametto, one of the Canadian music industry’s rising stars, signed a global recording and management agreement with Toronto based AMG, a world leader in music and film based entertainment.

The multi-album agreement, effective immediately, deepens the development relationship between Dametto and AMG and builds upon the enormous success he has achieved as a live teen-based performance artist. Dametto’s long-term strategic alliance with AMG started in the summer of 2022. Michael Dametto states, “I am so honoured to be working as an artist managed and A&R’d by AMG. Mark and Duane are the best guys in the industry! From the onset, I felt at home and at ease with their honesty, transparency and their expertise will be valuable assets that will support my musical journey. I know that they believe in me, and they will work with me so that I have an opportunity to share my music with the world.”

In making the announcement, Mark S. Berry, Chairman and Founder of AMG, said, “Few artists approach Michael Dametto’s combination of massive global appeal and creative brilliance. He is a multi-talented artist that will give some of Canada’s best a run for their money ie; Drake, The Weeknd & the Beibs himself. He can literally achieve anything. I have such enormous respect for Michael, in particular for his use of his hard-earned influence to promote positive change in his fellow youth. Because of his commitment to his fellow artists, not only did he want to partner with a company that understood his creative vision and had the resources and expertise to execute globally on his behalf, he also sought a partner whose approach to artists was aligned with his. With these shared beliefs, there is so much we can accomplish together, and all of us at AMG are enormously proud to be embarking on the next chapter of his career alongside him.”

Duane Farley, EVP of AMG said, “Michael has not only captured the imagination of an entire youth generation, but has also redefined the paradigm of the modern music industry. His commitment to songwriting and performing has earned him the respect of his peers and adoring fans. I can only imagine what Michael is capable of achieving in the years to come, both culturally and creatively. I’m beyond thrilled to create an alliance with AMG and the incomparable Michael Dametto.”

Riq Ali of RAG London & AMG-UK is accessing some of the biggest and most successful songwriters in the world for this project. Riq comments, “Michael Dametto is the latest musical artist export from Canada that is about to take the industry by storm with the support of an extremely powerful executive team of professionals. He is the kind of artist that our peers dream of. At just 13 years old he not only sings to perfection but his songwriting skills are phenomenal and as his UK Management he is just what the music world needs right now, a young fresh talent with heaps of potential to grow and we are thankful to be part of his journey.”
