Having just moved into the neighborhood this past summer, they are delighted with the area. Roland has two national offices with the other one located in Vancouver. They are a multi-faceted organization. Selling what they are traditionally known for which are various production equipment and instruments, they also offer workshops and manage some music talent. Another unique feature about Roland is that they opened their first Inspiration Centre at the Liberty Village location! Follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Located in an inconspicuous unit within the Liberty Market Building, what Post Office Sound produces is anything but ordinary. As their name suggests, no mail delivery service is available. By day, they work with many corporate accounts on projects like sound productions for radio and television. At night, their studio comes alive with up and coming and some well known recording artists curating their next big hit. Follow Post Office Sound on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Indie 88

Their office and studio may be small and unassuming, but Indie 88’s reach is far, wide and impactful. Calling Liberty Village home, they broke out onto the airwaves in the summer of 2013 as Canada’s first Indie radio station. They showcase rising Canadian artists and groups. Indie 88 is also present and showing their support at many concerts and events throughout the city. They had a tent at the Liberty Village BIA’s Give Me Liberty Party back in June. Listen up for their private studio contests, often held in partnership with fellow Liberty Village music company, Post Office Sound. Follow Indie 88 on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or tune in your radio dial to 88.1FM.
