Junos Reward Folk Alley Artists
April 8, 2008
This isn't something I get to say everyday, but an artist on the Folk Alley playlist has taken home multiple trophies in a major awards contest. Of course, that artist is Leslie Feist who is hotter than melted butter right now, but still... Feist picked up Canadian Juno Awards over the weekend for Album of the Year (The Reminder, which is sitting on my desk by chance), Pop Album of the Year, Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and Single of the Year (for "1234," aka "that iPod song"). Other winners making Folk Alley's hit list: Blue Rodeo for Group of the Year (esp. impressive since the award is based mostly on CD sales), Video of the Year and Adult Alternative Album of the Year (Small Miracles); David Francey for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year: Solo (Right of Passage); and Nathan for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year: Group (Key Principles).
