As some of you may have heard, some of my work was recognized at the 2012 Northern Ontario Music and Film Awards at the end of April.
I had a hell of a time, driving down to Sudbury with my good friend Nick Sherman, playing the showcase, the awards, and bringing home the nomination plaques! Not to mention hanging out with some of my new/old friends like Faraway Neighbours, Kalle Mattson, Faye Blais and many, MANY more.
I was nominated for the ‘Best Vocal Performance of the Year’ category for the song Fix from my a cappella EP. You can still download it for free on my soundcloud! I was up against Faye Blais (who took the award) as well as Cindy Doire, two wonderful and deserving singers – they’re touring Canada if not now then soon, so check them out!
Also nominated was Chris Dorota of Dining Studios for engineering my ‘Pitch Pipes’ EP and Piotr Skowronski for editing the ‘You’ music video (he couldn’t make it, unfortunately). Chris is always a classy man, but still the life of the party.
Here are some other photos of the festivities, my performance at the Great Hall as part of the Awards ceremony and a collection of others. A big thanks to everyone at Music and Film in Motion, and I’m looking forward to attending again next year!
