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.
Ever since her first album, Aquanaute (2002), SOCAN member Ariane Moffatt has been at the front and centre of contemporary Francophone music, and she’s been recognized over and over with numerous awards. Le cœur dans la tête (2005) saw her explore new sonic avenues. She followed that one up with Tous les sens (2008), a perfect brew of grooves and choruses that captured the public imagination. In 2013, she received the Fight Homophobia Award from then Premier of Québec, Pauline Marois. Three years after MA (2012), a bilingual album, Moffatt launched 10:22 pm, a dream-pop album whose commercial success on the radio earned her the Songwriter of the Year Award at the 2016 SOCAN Gala in Montréal.
