SOCAN was pleased and proud to sponsor a Sony Music Publishing Song Camp at Kilometre Music House, home of the Kilometre Music Group, in downtown Toronto, on Oct. 13-15, 2021.
Among the participating producers, songwriters, and top-liners were Boi-1da, DRTWRK, Anders, River Tiber, Zach Zoya, Savannah Ré, JRDN, Charlotte Day Wilson, Prezident Jeff, Jordon Manswell, Jamie Fine, YogiTheProducer, Rachael Kennedy, and U.S.-based songwriter Leon Thomas.
It was a lively, animated three nights, with creative sparks flying between, and within, the various small groups of co-writers, who were coming in and out of the building (and the writing sessions) all night long. The song camp coincided with Boi-1da’s birthday, so the iconic producer was presented with a GOAT (Greatest of All Time) cake, and fittingly celebrated by all.
Other creative participants included Mikey Samuels, Young Troy , Coleman, My Best Friend Jacob, Zypitano, Heartbeat, Eli Brown , AT, SLMN, Sully, Joël , Rahiim Hurlock, Ricky Tillo, Ty Leon, Shanks, Roderick Porter, ODIE, Bare, Dylan Sinclair, Rahiim Hurlock , Kevins Hideout, Bijan Amir, Jay Isaiah, Labcook, and Sunsetto.
The camp was curated by Adrian Nunez (VP, Creative A&R, Sony Music Publishing, out of New York) and producer/songwriter Don Mills, facilitated by Melissa Cameron-Passley SOCAN Manger, A&R), and hosted by Rodney Murphy (President of A&R/Acquisitions, Kilometre Music Group) and Gavin Brown (Producer/Songwriter, Kilometre Music Group).
