“Parler aux anges,” a song co-written by Nancy Dumais and Tino Izzo in 1997, became a SOCAN Classic during the 30th SOCAN Awards Gala, held Sept. 22, 2019, at Montréal’s La Tohu. The spong was drawn from Nancy Dumais’ critically acclaimed first album, and was nominated at the time for the Popular Song of the Year Félix Award. The Lac-Saint-Jean native – who describes herself as a former timid person, transformed into a “nearly brazen” one because of music – met with SOCAN for an interview at the event. We asked about the genesis of her SOCAN Classic, and why we haven’t heard from her in a long time, even though she admitted, while accepting the award, that she has a few songs in her back pocket.
