Canadian Music Week Announces Nominees For The Canadian Music & Broadcast Industry Awards

CMusicandBroadcast Industry Awards

Canadian Music Week is excited to announce the 2014 nominees for the Music and Broadcast Industry Awards. 42 categories among the Music and Broadcast Industry will be honoured on Thursday May 8, 2014 at Kool Haus in Toronto.

Hosted by the multi-talented Tom Green, the Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Awards celebrates Canadian talent both in the music and broadcast sectors. Sponsored by Live Nation, the awards gala will include performances from Nikki Yanofsky and Tom Cochrane, thanks to Galaxie, as well as appearances by Bruce Cockburn, Paul Ski, Ian Greenberg, and Alexander Mair.
 
The 2014 Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Awards will include not only the award show, but also a Cocktail Reception at 6:15PM – 7:00PM sponsored by Global Spectrum and a GALA dinner from 7:00PM – 9:30PM by invite only.

The awards are presented to individuals and organizations that have made a significant contribution to the Canadian music industry in the past year.
 
Voting is reserved for active members of the music industry. The winners are not chosen by fans, or by a panel of judges, but by their own peers. For more information: http://cmw.net/awards/music-broadcast-industry-awards/
