"Our songwriters, composers, and music publishers are incredibly talented, creative and, in many cases, have had impressive longevity," said SOCAN CEO Eric Baptiste. "Tonight's gala masterfully and deservedly shone a bright light and celebrated them for the crucial role they play in defining our culture and the undeniable positive economic impact of their work. We are proud to honour their accomplishments and congratulate them for their SOCAN Awards."
