On the deal and label signing, Gord Bamford commented: “I'm extremely excited about the new partnership with the team at Anthem Entertainment. We have been great partners on the publishing side for many years and with both the dedication and planning Helen Murphy has put into place to elevate and expand the record label it was simply too good not to be a part of. I feel very fortunate to work with Helen and the team she built. It's a new decade, new times and new music is on the way. I look forward to seeing everyone on the road!”
