ASCAP & SOCAN Members Nominated for Juno Awards

The nominations for the Juno Awards (Canada's equivalent of the Grammys) are chock-full of ASCAP members and SOCAN affiliates who license through us in the United States.

Multiple nominees include Canadian pop stars Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen, R&B/electronica artist The Weeknd and rockers Billy Talent, Hannah Georgas, Marianas Trench and Metric. Many of the nominees are familiar faces to US audiences; many more are stars in their native Canada, or on their way there.
