One of the biggest songs of 2016 was The Chainsmokers’ “Closer” featuring Halsey.

That song had a northern secret weapon to it — it  was co-written by Canadian Shaun Frank.

Frank’s had a long road from screamo rock band singer to EDM producer/DJ to #1 hitmaker.

He told me all about it in a feature interview for SOCAN’s Words & Music Magazine.

Not only is he in the reunited Wolf Parade and was one-half of the RIP Handsome Furs, his newest band Operators are pretty rippin’ in their own right.

I spoke to Boeckner about all these things and more in a feature for SOCAN’s Words & Music magazine.
