2021 Canadian Songwriter Challenge Songs

Canadian Song Conference 2021 logo2022 Music PEI will present the Canadian Song Conference online between May 16th and May 20th. This will be the 8th annual edition of this conference which explores creating multiple revenue streams and songwriting. In today’s music industry, it is challenging to develop a sustainable career and creating as many revenue streams as possible is critical to achieving that. Those revenue streams include licensing, royalties, publishing, streaming, syncs, label deals, merch sales and of course live performance. The CSC attempts to take some of the mystery out of these opportunities.

In addition to the panels, Music PEI has created the Listening Sessions , opportunities for PEI artists to present their recorded music to the delegates in a business development opportunity.

Delegates recruited for the event include music supervisors, publishers, labels, PRO’s, social platforms and more.

For a full schedule of the panels and Listening Sessions go to Conference Schedule.

Canadian Songwriter Challenge

Another component of the CSC is the Canadian Songwriter Challenge. Music PEI has partnered with provincial music industry associations from across the country to bring songwriters together to co-write with PEI songwriters. This unique opportunity pairs the 2 songwriters in each group with a producer. For more information go to Canadian Songwriter Challenge.

Music PEI would like to thank our funders Innovation PEI and the Province of PEI, ACOA, and FACTOR through the Canadian Public Radio Broadcasters and the Government of Canada.
