SOCAN was pleased to surprise singer-songwriter and SOCAN member Megan Bonnell with a No. 1 Song Award to for co-writing “Separate Rooms,” which topped the CBC Radio 2 Top 20 chart on May 24, 2018.
Bonnell co-wrote her song with Donovan Woods (previously awarded for “Separate Rooms” during Canadian Country Music Week 2018), Josh Van Tassel, and producer Chris Stringer. The song is also co-published by Arts & Crafts and Warner Chappell Music Canada.
SOCAN A&R Representative Melissa Cameron made the unexpected presentation to Bonnell, Stringer, and Amy Eligh of Arts & Crafts on Nov. 16, 2018, at a pop-up event at Ella’s Uncle in West downtown Toronto. The morning pop-up supported the release of her current Separate Rooms album on vinyl, in advance of her performance that night at The Mod Club, as part of the “Massey Hall Presents” series.
SOCAN congratulates Megan Bonnell, and her co-writers, on this great success!
