Music Nova Scotia announced its music and industry awards nominees today and two local musicians are nominated in several categories.
The husband and wife team of Dale Murray and Christina Martin, who record albums as separate artists but often perform together, live and work in Beckwith, near Port Howe. Murray operates s recording studio from home.
Murray released his latest album, Dream Mountain Dream, last March and is also nominated for Country/Bluegrass Recording of the Year, Male Artist Recording of the Year, Musician of the Year, and SOCAN Songwriter of the Year.
There will be peace in the country, too. He's not competing against his wife in any of the same categories.
Martin, who released her latest album Sleeping With A Stranger in July, is nominated for Digital Artist of the Year, Female Artist Recording of the Year, Folk Recording of the Year, and Recording of the Year. Her independent record label, Come Undone Records, is nominated for Company of the Year.
The awards will be given out Sunday, November 11.
(I have both albums, they are well-listened to, and more than deserving of not only nominations but awards as well.)
Congratulations, neighbours, and good luck.
