On June 4th, SOCAN (the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) released their nominees for the prestigious SOCAN Songwriting Prize. The prize honours the most creative and artistic songs released by Canadian indie artists (both English and French) over the past year. After the top 5 songs are picked by a panel of music experts, the winners are determined by public vote. The 5 finalists really are all incredibly talented artists so it will certainly be a tight race this year. Voting has already opened but you can vote once a day between June 3rd and July 3rd for a chance to win an iPad or Roland headphones. http://www.socansongwritingprize.ca/en/#/
So go and vote and feel free to give yourself a little pat on the back for supporting Canadian music. Virtual high five everyone!
Without further ado, here are the nominees!
Whitehorse- Devil's Got a Gun
Maylee Todd- Baby's Got it
The Weather Station featuring Baby Eagle- Mule in the Flowers
Purity Ring - Fineshrine
Mo Kenney with Joel Plaskett- Sucker
