In 2021 Folk-roots artist Tania Joy released her EP “I Will Stand,” produced by Hill Kourkoutis who made history as the first female to win a Juno Award for Recording Engineer of the Year at the 2022 Junos for engineering Tania Joy’s timeless song “The Drought,” as well as SATE’s powerhouse song “Howler.

Tania’s stories, so far, have been about relationships, in all their complicated forms. However, in 2020, she found herself taking on a more complex narrative and bringing increased attention to Black Lives Matter with “Planks and Marietta,” which won her Songwriter of The Year and was nominated for Durham Song of the Year at the 2021 OMAs.
