The Canadian Songwriter Challenge is in its 8th year. The goal of Music PEI’s version is to bring artists together from across Canada to co-write with PEI artists. Nine provincial music industry associations partnered with Music PEI in 2022 to create 6 teams of songwriters. Each pair is assisted by a producer.
The pairs of artists are tasked with writing and recording 2 songs each with their producer. All writing and recording in 2022 will be completed online. Once the songs are completed, they are presented to the delegates in online Listening Sessions. Songs produced through this program have been used by the delegates with some being used or re-recorded for the artists own albums.
Thanks to the music industry associations who partnered with us this year for the Canadian Songwriter Challenge: Music/Musique NB, Music Ontario, Manitoba Music, SaskMusic, Alberta Music, Music BC, Music NL, Music Nova Scotia and Music Yukon.
