Halifax is gearing up to host the 53rd Annual JUNO Awards and now the nominations for the big show have been unveiled.

Montreal-born singer-songwriter Charlotte Cardin returns to dominate this year’s JUNO nominations for a second time with a total of six.

R&B all-star Daniel Caesar and rising rocker TALK followed with five nominations each.

Artists with three nominations each include famed folk star Allison Russell, Aysanabee, actor and rapper Connor Price, production duo DVBBS, Canada power-pop singer-songwriter Lauren Spencer Smith and pop track sensation Tate McRae.

TikTok JUNO Fan Choice nominee and rising country star Josh Ross will make his JUNO Awards debut with a harmonic performance showcasing his renowned pop-rock-infused style.

Karan Aujla, the British Columbia-based singer, rapper and songwriter will also join the revered lineup of Canadian musical excellence in Halifax.

Breakaway rockstar TALK will take audiences to another planet with an electrifying and eccentric performance this March after making waves with five first-time JUNO nominations.

These artists join previously announced performances from The Beaches, Charlotte Cardin, Nelly Furtado and this year’s Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductee and New Brunswick’s Maestro Fresh Wes.

It was also announced that Halifax’s own esteemed industry veteran, entertainment lawyer and artist manager Chip Sutherland will receive this year’s Walt Grealis Special Achievement Award.

The distinguished honour recognizes individuals whose work has significantly impacted the growth and development of the Canadian music industry.
