We are pleased as punch to have just been nominated for INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR with Symphony! at the 2015 JUNO AWARDS! Thanks to our entire team and wonderful supporters. Without the support of Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, FACTOR, Toronto Arts Council, Radio Starmaker, as well as our amazing fans, Symphony! simply wouldn’t have been made. Thanks!
The annual APAP Conference NYC is one of the most exciting events in the music industry and we’re very proud to be a part of it! There is no cost to attend so we hope that you’ll come to one of our two showcases (if not both!) and bring a friend. There will be so many great artists that you can check out after our set in the hotel, and lots of opportunity to meet interesting people, ensuring that this will be a super fun evening that you won’t soon forget!
