Playlist Friday has most of the 2017 WCMA nominees that were announced earlier this week. There is 4.5 hours of Jazz, Blues, Pop, Rock and even Country on it. Western Canada has a lot of artists you should know about and this gives you a good sample of them. Some you may know already but there may be more for you to discover.
The East Coast Music Awards were last night, Thursday April 27 and the festival is running April 26 to 30. We have been spending a lot of time on the East Coast in recent months so since the nominees were just announced, we are focusing on the West Coast this week instead. I will be adding a playlist of the winners from the ECMA as well. At the time of writing, not all the categories have been updated with winners yet so I will update when I find out more.
The West Coast Music Awards nominees are listed on the website. Do you have any favourites? The winners will be announced live from the stages of the BreakOut West Festival, and at the annual Industry Awards Brunch, September 13-17, 2017 in Edmonton, AB.
Enjoy the playlists. If you have any playlist ideas or something you want to hear, comment below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
