The JUNOs red carpet is always a great opportunity to hear from the artists nominated in either of the two galas celebrating Canadian music excellence. That’s what we did with Montréal-born but now Toronto-based singer-songwriter and producer Karl Wolf, who won the Juno for Dance Recording of the Year with his song Get Away, having previously won 3 in the R&B/Soul Recording of the Year category. An unexpected change of style that finally paid off for Karl Wolf:
We also briefly chatted with Montréal’s own Kallitechnis whose track Gifted earned her a nomination in the Contemporary R&B Recording of the Year category, a first nomination she welcomes as a validation of her work:
Finally, we were able to ask a few questions to Hervé Kalongo, San Farafina and Pierre Kwenders of the Montréal-based collective Moonshine, nominated in the category of Global Music Album of the Year, for their opus SMS for Location vol. 4. They explain what the Moonshine spirit is and express their surprise after having been nominated in that category rather than in the electronic music one which they feel they belong to.
