2021 JACK RICHARDSON PRODUCER OF THE YEAR | WondaGurl | | The JUNO Awards

Originally hailing from Toronto, Canada, WondaGurl began teaching herself how to create music at ten years old and quickly rose to prominence by winning the 2012 ‘Battle of The Beat Makers’ competition at fifteen. Her music soon caught the attention of Boi-1da, a top producer for artists including Drake, Jay-Z, and Kendrick Lamar, and she became his protégé upon entering the music industry. Her talent has only continued to rise since then, earning her several RIAA certifications, Grammy nominations, and top-charting singles. She has also staked her claim in the branding world and has recently collaborated with Beats, the Toronto Raptors, Sprite, and Reebok. In addition to her production work, she has made the transition to a label and publishing executive by entering into a publishing joint-venture with Sony/ATV and her company Wonderchild, which focuses on developing the next generation of producers and giving them the chance to work with artists alongside her. She has already signed two longtime collaborators to her publishing imprint this spring.
