Ottawa talent nominated for Juno Awards

junos2013_01

The Juno Awards are this Sunday, April 21st, in Regina. They are being hosted by one of Canada’s most famous exports… Michael Bublé.

But that is not what’s important, what is, is that there are some great locals up for awards on Canadian music’s biggest night.

  • Kathleen Edwards is nominated for Songwriter of the Year and her album Voyageur is up for the Adult Alternative Album of the Year.
  • Nineteen-year-old Kira Isabella is nominated for Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
  • Kristina Maria‘s album Tell The World is nominated for Pop Album of the Year
Ottawa Showbox wishes them the best of luck and Ottawa should be very proud of them just for being nominated.  The Nation’s Capital does have some catching up to do though, as musicians from Vancouver and Toronto dominate the list of nominees.
Performing live at the Junos will be Metric, Billy Talent, Carly Rae Jepsen, Hannah Georgas, K.D. Lang, Marianas Trench, Michael Bublé, Serena Ryder, and The Sheepdogs.
