With the JUNO’s coming up soon it’s so exhilarating to see all the Canadian talent coming to the forefront of the music industry. Artists who are up and coming to artists who have held their ground with quality music both displaying a wide array of musical direction and prowess.
It’s important to note that many of these artists at one point were debating about finding a temporary job to support them through their musical journey. But this would mean it would take time away from doing what mattered to them the most, making music. SOCAN Foundation was formed in the hopes that these artists would be assisted financially in order to be able to focus on their main goal.
We are proud and happy to congratulate the artists who have been nominated for the JUNO Awards!
