On the red carpet at the 2019 SOCAN Awards, Lowell discusses her frequent, long-term co-writing with bülow (whose “Not a Love Song” won a Pop Music Award), how co-writing generally works for her, and the effect of participating in the SOCAN Kenekt Songwriting Camp.
Backstage at the 2019 SOCAN Awards, where she was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, we asked Buffy Sainte-Marie what songwriting means in her life, and what her reaction was to the tribute performances at the show.
SOCAN honoured publisher peermusic Inc. with a No. 1 Song Award for “People’s Champ” by Arkells, which reached the top spot on the CBC Radio Top 20, on April 26, 2018.
SOCAN A&R Representative Melissa Cameron-Passley presented the award to peermusic’s Cheryl Link at Rosalinda restaurant in downtown Toronto, on April 3, 2019.
The song was co-written by band members Anthony Carone, Mike DeAngelis, Nick Dika, Max Kerman, and Tim Oxford. “People’s Champ” was published by peermusic Inc. at the time of the charting.
