Buble picks up songwriting gongs

Michael Buble won an award for his track Hollywood

Michael Buble and Deadmau5 have been honoured for their songwriting talents in their home country.

Jazz crooner Michael picked up two gongs - the international song award and another in the pop/rock category - for his track Hollywood at the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN) awards in Toronto.

Meanwhile, electro-house act Deadmau5 - aka Joel Zimmerman - was given the international achievement gong in recognition of his worldwide success.

Folk rock guitarist and singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn received the lifetime achievement award.

SOCAN's Eric Baptiste said: "Original music brings joy to Canadians. It's essential to our national pride and culture. Our songwriters and composers continue to create music that is being played both at home and around the world, while our publishers work diligently to expand the markets for Canadian music. We're proud to congratulate all of the SOCAN Award recipients for their accomplishments."
