Co-Founder, Crystal Math Music

After creating and selling his first technology company at 19, Mathieu joined one of Canada's largest independent music companies, as an unpaid intern. By 23, he was the company's president, helping it expand by co-founding the labels Last Gang Records and Arts & Crafts International. He moved on in 2006, and co-founded Crystal Math Music, an artist management company with label and publishing divisions. Crystal Math Music made history when client Metric's first self-released album became a precedent-setting success; selling over 500,000 albums and 1,000,000 singles worldwide. Metric became the first band to have their first ever top 20 hit at US commercial radio, without the backing of a label. This success garnered numerous high profile syncs, including the theme song to The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. The band's career exploded globally and earned Mathieu a spot on Billboard's esteemed "Top 30 under 30" list of "Music Industry Power Players".
