2018 Music PEI Canadian Songwriter Challenge Update
Congratulations to Ontario's own Steph Copeland for making a huge impression on the entirety of Canadian Songwriter Challenge delegates! Partnering with PEI-based trans performance artist and musician Russell Louder, the duo hit it off right away, collaborating on a lot of pre-production work prior to visiting the studio. Greatly impressing engineer Colin Buchanan (Guitarist of Prince Edward Island's Paper Lions) with their preparation and professionalism and receiving a lot of buzz from the conference, Copeland and Louder generated praise from many, including Duncan Smith, UK-based Music Supervisor of Sony Interactive:
"She's a great package of beautiful voice, strong song-writing/arranging skills, production technique and, importantly, great attitude. I'd love to collaborate with her on the right project &, having heard her stuff & hung out with her, feel confident it would be a positive experience & that she'd deliver."
