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.
SOCAN member, singer-songwriter and producer Jessy Lanza has a unique take on R&B, laced with haunting high-register vocals. Lanza was listed as one of the best new artists of 2013 by XLR8R. In a review of her debut album, Pull My Hair Back, she was described by U.K. newspaper The Guardian as "the latest and possibly greatest of the new ethereal soul girls," and ranked No. 4 on Resident Advisor’s Top 20 Albums of 2013. Pull My Hair Back, which Lanza co-produced, was released in the U.K. as well as Canada, and was short-listed for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize, as was her second album Oh No, in 2016.
