Presented by SOCAN, the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers, the 2018 Juno Songwriters' Circle will be held on March 25 from 12 to 2 p.m. PT, showcasing a handful of Canada's most talented songwriters as they perform original songs, and share the stories behind them. The artists haven't been announced yet, but will be after this year's Juno nominees are revealed.

This will be the second time that Arden and Rock will have teamed up in the last while: the two recently worked together on Arden's upcoming March 2018 album, These are the Days.
