On the red carpet at the 2019 SOCAN Awards, Geoff Warburton – who won a Pop Music Award for co-writing Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood” with Mendes, Scott Friedman (ASCAP), and Teddy Geiger (BMI) – discusses his process of co-writing with the pop star, and how co-writing generally works for him.

Backstage at the 2019 SOCAN Awards, where Jack Lenz was celebrated as the Most Performed Screen Composer in the 30-year history of SOCAN, we asked him about writing the “O.K. Blue Jays” theme song; lessons learned from early work with ‘70s hit-makers; his reaction to winning the “most-performed” honour; and familial sacrifices required to succeed in scoring.
