CANCON from an American songwriter/producer's perspective

by bhill, about 3 years ago

I am an American songwriter/music producer. I have worked with Canadian music artists for decades. Compliance to CANCON is always on our minds whenever I've produced a Canadian artist. I think some aspects of CANCON are important and valuable to Canada, but the confines within the individual elements of MAPL as they presently are can be very restrictive and counter-productive. This would be my proposal for qualifying Canadian music recordings as CANCON:

Two out of three would qualify the recording as CANCON:A = Artist (Canadian, satisfies this component)S = Song (Any portion written by a Canadian satisfies this component)P = Production (Any portion recorded in Canada satisfies this component)Respectfully,Byron HillNashville
