The East Coast Music Awards were held last weekend in Moncton, NB, and two of our neighbours were nominated.
Dale Murray, along with his partner in life and music, moved into our neighbourhood over a year ago, choosing to settle in the country in order to continuing pursuing their work. Dale is a singer/songwriter, formerly with The Guthries and Cuff the Duke but now a solo artist (he released his latest album, Dream Mountain Dream, in March) as well as a music producer. Christina Martin is a singer/songerwriter who new album gets released this summer. She was nominated for Folk Recording of the Year for her last album, House Concert, recorded at their new home studio in Port Howe about six months after they moved in.
It was Dale, however, who brought home the hardware. He is the ECMA Audio Professional of the Year for his work in music production.
