BIG NEWS: Our Covenant Award Nominations!

We woke up yesterday morning to amazing news:

We've received 2 Covenant Award Nominations!!!

Each year, the Gospel Music Association (GMA) of Canada gives out the Covenant Awards to celebrate the best in Canadian Christian music. Yesterday, they released the list of nominees, and we found ourselves on the list not once, but twice!

Our latest CD - How The Light Gets In - is nominated for Folk Album of the Year!

Earlier this year, How The Light Gets In was also nominated for the East Coast Music Award (ECMA) for Gospel Recording of the Year.

You can hear samples HERE.

The title track of our Christmas album - Tonight, Everywhere Is Bethlehem - 
is nominated for Seasonal Song of the Year!

You can hear the song HERE.

I can't tell you how excited and honoured we are by this news. If you're familiar with Canadian Christian music, you'll see that we're nominated with some amazing talent. Steve Bell, Carolyn Arends, and Jacob Moon have decades-long careers and shelves of awards. Pretty rarified air...

We're also incredibly excited for all our friends and colleagues who have received nominations! It's so satisfying to watch a friend work hard to create beautiful, interesting, inspiring art, and then see it recognized by the industry in this way.

The full list of nominees is HERE.

We're so grateful to everyone who has and continues to join us on this musical and spiritual journey. Thank you to all the musicians and producers who helped us create these projects! And a huge Thank You to each of you who has supported our music by buying CDs, hosting concerts, or attending any of our live events. You keep us going...

Next month, we leave for our Prairies Road Trip concert tour. Throughout October, we'll sing our way through Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Please Contact us to book a concert on this tour! The first week of November, we'll be in Edmonton, AB, for GMA Week - GMA Canada's annual gathering. There will be workshops, showcases, and the big night - the Covenant Awards gala!

We invite you to join us on this adventure! 
We'll be posting regular updates on this blog, Twitter, and Facebook

Glory to God, whose power, working in us, can do 
Infinitely More than we can ask or imagine.
