Hear all the Juno nominees you need to hear in 90 minutes… well ok, 98
Every year when the Juno nominees come out, I do a little cheer for the friends and favourite artists that have shown up on the list. But invariably, there will also be names on those lists that cause me to shrug.
“Who’s that? I’ve never heard of that person,” I’ll think to myself.
Let’s face it, there’s nothing like watching a music award show where you actually know all the artists, you’ve heard the albums, and you’re really rooting for the one that you think is the best. But as life gets busier, we too often miss all those thrilling moments of discovery throughout the year. So here at Roots Music Canada, allow us to give those back to you in bite-sized portions. We’ve made two Spotify playlists of under an hour each that showcase one song from each of the Juno nominees in the roots, blues, world, Indigenous and Reggae categories. There are some wonderful discoveries to be made here. Enjoy!
Oh! And watch for the winners. The winners in these categories will be announced Saturday night during the Juno gala starting at 8 p.m. ET. You can stream it on cbcmusic.ca/junos, the free CBC Gem streaming service and CBC Music’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages.
