The Junos Tonight!

The very best in Canadian music will strut their stuff tonight and compete with one another for the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Award, the Juno. Although it will be a little less glamorous and glitzy than the Grammys, tonight's Juno ceremony is still the biggest night in Canadian music industry. Back in February, I blogged about some of my favourite Canadian artists nominated for Junos. One of those artists is the lovely Kreesha Tuner. She's up for two awards. Check out her video for 'Bounce With Me.' It was my ringtone for months.

Have you heard of Lost Fingers? Based in Quebec, this jazz-influenced band remixes 80's/90's hits to give them a totally different sound. Listen to their version of Technotronic's "Pump Up the Jam." I guarantee it will bring a smile to your face.

The amazing Sarah McLachlan will be honoured tonight with the Allan Waters Humanitarian Award and will also be performing. Has it really been 12 years since the first Lilith Fair?!?

A few weeks ago I attended CHUMFanFest during Canadian Music Week, and watched Divine Brown perform. One word - Unbelievable! She's sassy, soulful and simply makes you want to dance! I'm looking forward to her performance tonight. Visit her site to listen to some of her tunes.
