The song was written by Jess, Kelly Archer, and Emily Shackelton.
Canada’s songwriters, composers and music publishers were honoured June 19 at the 29th annual SOCAN Awards in downtown Toronto, where Canadian rock legends of the last three decades mixed with Canadian producers, writers and publishers of urban, country, rock, film & television, jazz, electronic dance, folk-roots, pop and classical music.
SOCAN achievement award winners are determined collaboratively between the Membership Committee of the SOCAN Board of Directors and leaders in the SOCAN Membership department.
Jess performed a stripped-down and emotional version of her hit song, accompanied by co-writer Kelly Archer, for the awards show.
More than 50 awards were presented for success in songwriting, composing and music publishing based on SOCAN data compiled over the last calendar year.
It was quite the day for Jess, as Multi-Platinum country artist Paul Brandt also received his first Canadian Gold Single certification for “I’m An Open Road (featuring Jess Moskaluke)” from Music Canada.
