Charlotte Cardin wins three pre-broadcast Junos as history is made in other categories




TORONTO — Charlotte Cardins had her hands full at the Juno Awards pre-release ceremony on Saturday as she picked up three high-profile trophies.

The Montreal pop singer-songwriter was named artist of the year, while her debut album, Phoenix, received pop album of the year, and her song Meaningless was selected as single of the year. .

I’m freaking out, she says backstage after counting her Junos. I am very happy.

It was a triple win that gave the former model and Top 4 finalist for the Quebec version of The Voice some serious clout as a rising Canadian star.

The majority of Juno Awards are given out at the opening ceremony by music industry invitation before the Sunday telecast. This is the first in-person Junos Party since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

Cardin has been the Junos’ toast since emerging at the top of the nominations six times, this year edging out five-time nominated superstars Justin Bieber and The Weeknd, who followed close behind on Saturday night with two wins.

Toronto-born Abel Tesfaye was absent from the ceremony, but won Contemporary R&B Recording for his single Take My Breath and Songwriter of the Year for his co-writing efforts on three recent songs, including one with Kanye West and another with supergroup DJ Swedish House. Mafia.

History was made in several other categories as Hill Kourkoutis became the first woman to be nominated for Sound Engineer and extended the historic moment by picking up the win. She is now the only female sound engineer to win since the category was created in 1976.

Adult Contemporary Album winner Serena Ryder stayed in the press room to give BFF Kourkoutis a warm hug shortly after her breakthrough victory, telling her: I’m so proud of you.

Kourkoutis said she hopes her Junos moment is another step towards increasing the number of women in music production careers.

I believe we were in a huge period of transition right now, she said.

Over the past five years the conversation has grown around this issue and I see so many young and even established artists for a while entering the production profession.

At 13, Kairo McLean became the youngest winner in the Reggae Recording of the Year category for his album Easy Now.

Dressed in a bright red tuxedo his mother bought him, the teenager flashed many smiles as he credited generations of reggae artists, from Bob Marley to Jamaican-Canadian Exco Levi, with inspiring him to make music.

It’s such a big step, McLean said of the win. I don’t know how I was going to top it.

And in the Producer of the Year category, Ebony Oshunrinde won her second award in as many years after becoming the first black woman to win the award in 2021. Oshunrinde who calls herself WondaGurl won for her work on Drakes Fair Trade (feat. Travis Scott) and Los Angeles artist Faze Kaysans Made a Way (featuring Lil Durk and Future).

Among other notable wins, a heartbreaking reunion of Quebec director Xavier Dolan and vocal powerhouse Adele for Easy on Me received music video of the year. The pair previously won a Juno in 2016 for their first collaboration on the black and white visuals of Hello.

Dolan was absent from the ceremony, as were several of the other winners, including Charmaine whose Bold was chosen as rap single of the year and Kaytranada, the Montreal born Louis Celestin, who emerged the winner of the dance recording from the year for his single Caution.

Rock Album of the Year winners The Beaches were unable to accept their award for Sisters Not Twins (The Professional Lovers Album) because they were performing at a show in Guelph, Ontario.

Other winners included Toronto rock trio Monowhales, who were named Breakthrough Band, and Savannah R, whose 24hrs received traditional R&B/soul recording of the year.

Allison Russell bagged the contemporary roots album award for Outside Child, a reflection on her abusive upbringing in Montreal, while Brett Kissel won the country album for What is Life?

The award for Newly Created Underground Dance Single of the Year went to HNTR, pronounced hunter, for their song Shadows in the Dark, featuring Elliot Moss.

And Toronto poet Mustafa Ahmed picked alternative album of the year for When Smoke Rises, inspired in part by the life and death of several friends from Toronto’s Regent Park community. He is the first Black Muslim to win the category, a point he made before quickly expanding the topic to the evening’s other historic premieres.

I think being first of all should now be criticized more than celebrated, he said to the applause of the audience.

Another first will come during the Sunday Juno Awards broadcast when Deborah Cox becomes the only black woman to be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame since its inception in 1978 and the second black musician, following Oscar Peterson in the inaugural year. .

The Junos air Sunday on the Budweiser Stage in Toronto, hosted by Shang-Chi star Simu Liu.

This report from The Canadian Press was first published on May 14, 2022.
