“Ever since I was a young musician…” A look back at JUNO Week 2012

Ever since I was a young musician, I dreamt of being at the JUNOs and one day walking on stage to the applause of thousands to receive an award.

Now, that being said, I have not chosen a career that would lead to this dream, but I have chosen a career that still lead me to be in attendee at this year’s JUNO Fest and Awards.

24 hours a day, seven days a week, I’m a full-time music publicist and an occasional freelance writer. With the honor of attending the 2012 JUNOs as spectator and writer, I truly got to experience the JUNOs and the Canadian music talent it celebrates.

CD Review: Ron Sexsmith – Exit Strategy of The Soul (Yep Roc)

After seeing this album wind up on so many Top 10 lists of other writers I respect, I had to go out in search of this disc and see what all the fuss was about. I am glad I jumped on this as fast as I did, as it’s truly a wonderful record and possibly the best yet from Sexsmith, who has slowly but steadily made a name for himself as an ace songwriter and vocalist.
