Emilie Barlow Nominated for a Juno

Emilie-Claire Barlow (Sailor Venus #2) has been nominated for a Juno Award, for her latest album The Beat Goes On, in the category of Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. Her competition includes the late Jeff Healey (Last Call), Nikki Yanofsky (Nikki), Kellylee Evans (Nina), and Laila Biali (Tracing Light). According to Emilie’s official newsletter, despite just being released this past October, her album was one of the top 10 best selling jazz albums of 2010 and the album continues to top the charts in early 2011.

This is Emilie’s fourth Juno nomination, which she described as “icing on the cake. It’s just that extra bonus that you get, that kind of recognition. I’m going to continue making records, regardless if I win […] but it certainly gives you a boost.” She also said that “It’s great to be in a category that represents a lot of real musicians. People [who] are true consummate musicians.”

Since Emilie will be performing a show on tour on the night of the Juno Awards, she’ll be watching the television broadcast of the 40th annual awards show, along with other Canadians. The awards show will be airing from Toronto on Sunday, March 27th on CTV.
