GroundSwell Music Publishing is based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The company was established in 2016 by Ian McKinnon, President/Owner of GroundSwell Music and Doug Taylor, President/Owner of Codapop Recording Studios. Having observed a gap in the music publishing industry in Atlantic Canada, they seized the opportunity to establish GroundSwell Music Publishing.

The initial catalog is formed primarily of music by GroundSwell artists. The company is also now actively signing additional songwriting clients to the publishing roster. The company also enjoys the capability of developing new music in a timely fashion, utilizing a stable of established songwriters and musicians using our onsite Codapop Studios. Songs from the GroundSwell Music Publishing catalogue have been featured in dozens of commercials, TV shows and movies in the US, Canada and Europe.
