Music PEI has announced the 4th annual Canadian Songwriter Challenge as part of the Canadian Song Conference taking place in Charlottetown May 23–26.

The Canadian Songwriter Challenge is an initiative supported by Bell Media and the Canadian Council of Music Industry Associations. Each provincial music industry association has their own version of the challenge and Music PEI has chosen to include not only PEI artists but also artists from across Canada allowing them to collaborate. The collaboration for 2018 includes partnerships with SaskMusic, Music Ontario, Music Nova Scotia, Music New Brunswick, Music BC, and Music Newfoundland.

PEI artists selected to participate this year include Catherine MacLellan, Josh Carter (Calm Baretta), Alicia Toner, Russell Louder, Danny Drouin and The Amanda Jackson Trio. Their pairings are Reeny Smith (Nova Scotia) with Catherine, Shaun LeBlanc (New Brunswick) with Josh, Sean Panting (Newfoundland) with Alicia, Steph Copeland (Ontario) with Russell, Shantaia Poulin (Saskatchewan) with Danny, and Alexandria Mailot (British Columbia) with The Amanda Jackson Trio.

The 6 pairs of artists write together for 2 days and record demos. On May 25 they will present the demos at a listening session for the delegates attending the Canadian Song Conference. The delegates include music supervisors, publishers, labels, broadcasters both domestic and international. These listening sessions have been a highlight of the conference the past three years and have resulted in licensing for film and TV.

The 12 artists will perform together on May 25 during the Canadian Song Conference in a songwriter's circle at Trinity United Church.
