In April of 2024, we caught up with Allison Russell to present her with a No. 1 Song Award for “Demons,” which topped the CBC Music Top 20 Countdown on Feb. 1, 2024. Russell co-wrote the song with Drew Lindsay and JT Nero, and it’s published by Concord Music Publishing. As we chatted with her on the occasion, she discussed the healing qualities of her music, trusting in collaboration, and how her daughter is her harshest critic.
