For Immediate Release
This year the Juno Awards (the Canadian version of the Grammy’s) was held on April 21, 2013 at the Brandt Centre in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The theme was, “It’s Gonna Get Loud!” … and it delivered – with the famous host Michael Bublé, driving viewership higher than last year, and topping out at nearly 7 million throughout the evening. The award show captured the 18-34 year olds attention last Sunday and was the third highest audience it has had on that national network.
Congratulations go out to Joel Miller, a Conn-Selmer artist nominated in the Best Contemporary Jazz Album of the year category. He says, “I just got back from the Juno Awards in Regina where I performed with my group. Afterwards, I attended the gala ceremony and I won a Juno Award for my album Swim. I’m thrilled and honored to accept this award and to be recognized for the time, work and artistry that I put into my album.”
The Juno Award for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year has been awarded since 1977. It is in recognition of the best contemporary jazz album nationally across Canada. The Juno Awards are bestowed annually to Canadian musical artists and bands to recognize their musical accomplishments.
