In a backstage video interview from the 2016 JUNO Awards, winners Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland – the husband-and-wife duo of Whitehorse – talk about how they write songs both separately and together; how they’ll often respond to song critiques and suggestions from their producers, or their label head Shauna de Cartier, of Six Shooter Records; and what SOCAN does for them.

In these interviews with Paroles & Musique Editor Eric Parazelli just before their respective performances, Samito and La Bronze tell us, among other things, about entering new markets and the importance of a solid team with the right contacts to achieve that goal.

In an interview with SOCAN on the 2016 JUNOs red carpet, nominee for Video of the Year (for the song “Avalanche”) Kalle Mattson briefly discusses the songwriting for the Avalanche album, career changes since then, what’s on tap for his next album and this summer, and how SOCAN has helped him.
