Music PEI has announced the schedule for the 4th annual Canadian Song Conference. 

The focus of the Conference is to educate and assist artists and music industry professionals in gaining information and contacts to create multiple revenue streams in the music industry outside of live performance. There will be discussion panels exploring royalties, licensing, syncs, labels, publishing, playlists and broadcasting along with Listening Sessions and showcases. 

An important component of the Conference includes the Canadian Songwriter Challenge. Supported by Bell Media, Music PEI brings artists from across Canada to pair up with PEI artists to collaborate and write 2 songs each and then present and pitch them in a Listening Session to the delegates.  

PEI artists participating 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 LB (New Brunswick) with Josh, Sean Panting (Newfoundland) with Alicia, Steph Copeland (Ontario) with Russell, Shantaia (Saskatchewan) with Danny, and Alexandria Mailot (British Columbia) with The Amanda Jackson Trio. These participants will also perform in concert on May 25 at Trinity United Church in Charlottetown. Ticket info: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Showcases will take place May 24 at The Pourhouse above The Old Triangle in Charlottetown beginning at 9 pm.

The Conference brings in top music industry professionals from Canada, the US and UK. Conference delegates include songwriter Bonnie Hayes (songs recorded by Cher, Bette Midler, David Crosby, Natalie Cole), Susan Rogers (former engineer for Prince, Bare Naked Ladies), Duncan Smith (music supervisor for Sony), Bled Celhyka (Arts & Crafts), Samuel Diaz (CBS music supervisor), Greg Torrington (Stingray Music), representatives from SOCAN, Canada Council, MROC, ACTRA, FACTOR, CFM, CIMA and a host of other delegates who will provide insights and connections for conference participants. 

The Canadian Song Conference is open to anyone who registers. It is is free for Music PEI members and $35 for non-members.
