About Kit Wheeler

Kit Wheeler is the head of SOCAN’s Distribution Department.  This division is the bottom line of what SOCAN is about: ensuring that performance royalties are paid out to composers, songwriters, lyricists and music publishers.  It’s very rewarding for me to know that the work and effort I put into my job means that creators are fairly compensated for their work. Music is a big part of my professional life, and that of my husband (a freelance music journalist/filmmaker), but it’s also a big part of our home life, too. It’s not unusual for the kids and I to break out into spontaneous dance parties, or for them to gather their buckets and guitars for an impromptu jam session.
