New York, NY (Top40 Charts) CCS Rights Management and Daytripper Music Publishing congratulate award-winning songwriter, producer, artist and engineer Hill Kourkoutis for becoming the first female to take home the prestigious Juno Award for Recording Engineer of the Year. Kourkoutis won for engineering Tania Joy's timeless song "The Drought," as well as SATE's powerhouse song "Howler," which she produced and co-wrote.

As a climactic highlight of the Canadian music industry's biggest week of the year, she was presented the award during the 2022 Juno Opening Night Awards that streamed live on May 14 to a global audience in advance of the Juno Awards broadcast tonight (May 15) at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT.

In accepting the award, Kourkoutis said: "Thank you to CARAS. Thank you to SATE and Tania Joy for trusting me with your hearts and your art. Thank you to my team, Joe D'Ambrosio, Jodie Ferneyhough, Jordan Howard, CCS and Daytripper. My family who been the most supportive ever. Thank you for allowing me to follow my dreams…my partner Abby, Mom, Dad, Cerise, Dimitri. I dedicate this award to my late friend, Tim Thorney, who is my mentor and champion. Thank you."

According to The Recording Academy, female Grammy winners for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, have included trailblazers such as Imogen Heap, Trina Shoemaker, Leslie Ann Jones, Ann Mincieli, and Emily Lazar, who was the first woman mastering engineer to take home the award for her work on Beck's Colors.
