The Junos Songwriters' Circle has always been a chance for this country's best songwriters to get together, share some stories and play some of their most popular songs. It has been a highlight of the annual Junos Week, which was cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Even with everyone isolated, we wanted to keep the magic and intimacy of the Songwriters' Circle alive, so we asked some of Canada's brightest stars to join in from the comfort of their own homes. 

You can watch episode 1 of the Junos 365 Songwriters' Circle, presented by SOCAN in association with Music Publishers Canada, by clicking play above. It features host Brett Kissel with special guests Devon Portielje from Half Moon Run, Dominique Fils-Aimé and Kaia Kater taking part.

This is just the first in a five-part series, which you can catch every other Friday at 8 p.m. ET right here on cbcmusic.ca/junos.
