Feist and Corb Lund Win Independent Music Awards
March 25, 2008
Singer/songwriters Leslie Feist and Corb Lund have picked up Independent Music Awards during Canadian Music Week in Toronto, Canada. Feist's solo album, The Reminder, has made a strong showing on both the U.S. and Canadian Billboard charts - thanks, in part, to the song "1234," which was used in an iPod Nano ad. She picked up prizes in the Favourite Album of the Year and Favourite Solo Artist of the Year. Lund took home the trophy for Favourite Folk/Roots Artist of the Year for Horse Soldier, a collection of original songs with a horse theme (it being Corb Lund, it's a lot better than it sounds on paper). Newcomer Jenn Grant earned the Galaxie Rising Stars Award of the CBC for her CD, Orchestra for the Moon.
