"Informer," "Drinking in L.A." Inducted Into Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame


Four essential Canadian songs will be inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame next month.

On November 1, the Hall of Fame will recognize Snow's "Informer," Bran Van 3000's "Drinking in L.A.," Dream Warriors' "My Definition of a Boombastic Jazz Style" and Martha and the Muffins' "Echo Beach" at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto, ON, as part of its Legends Series.

The event will be celebrated with performances by emerging artists as well as with conversations with Darrin O’Brien (Snow), Louie Robinson and Richard Rodwell (Dream Warriors), James Di Salvio (Bran Van 3000) and Mark Gane (Martha and the Muffins) that will be moderated by host Sonia Benezra.

“As the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame marks 25 years of recognizing the songs and songwriters who have helped shape our culture, we are so excited to be moving into the selection of Inductees from the ‘80s and ‘90s — one of the most diverse, creative and ground-breaking eras in music that truly opened up the gates to global success for many Canadians,” said Stan Meissner, CSHF Board Chairman.  “The four songs that will be inducted are vastly different from each other – from new wave to jazz infused hip hop; from reggae-rap to a laid-back dance track – however, they all pushed the boundaries of convention, celebrated individuality, and influenced popular culture.”
