If you wrote or co-wrote a percentage of a musical work that’s been recorded, performed or published, you should join SOCAN to receive the money that you’ve earned. If your songs are played by almost any business, almost anywhere in the world – whether live, on radio, online, on TV, in movies, etc. – SOCAN collects the money that’s owed for your share of those performances. When it comes to getting paid for performances of songs to which you’ve contributed, it’s our business to take care of you. We’ve got your back.
Producer/DJ trio A Tribe Called Red is a modern gateway into both urban and contemporary Indigenous culture, straddling hip-hop, powwow drums and vocals, and electronic production. Through a positive attitude and tireless work ethic, their message has expanded globally, with tours in Australia, Europe, Mexico and the U.S. In 2014, this trio of SOCAN members became the first Indigenous artists to win Breakthrough Group of the Year at the JUNO Awards. They followed up in 2017 with the Producer of the year JUNO Award. ATCR was also long-listed for the Polaris Music Prize in both 2012 and 2013, and short-listed in 2017.
