JUNO Awards Reveal Nominees for 2020 Celebration

The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences announced the nominees for the 2020 JUNO Awards in Saskatoon. This year the awards, taking place on March 15, 2020, will be hosted by singer-songwriter Alessia Cara. Each year the JUNO Awards are presented to Canadian musical artists and bands to bring to light their achievements across many aspects of music. The Orchard is a proud partner of over 15 distributed artists and labels nominated this year. 

City and Colour were nominated for Adult Alternative Album of the Year for their sixth studio album entitled A Pill For Loneliness, released in October of last year. Produced and mixed by Jaquire King and mastered by Emily Lazar, the album showed a more “celestial” side of Canadian musician Dallas Green. Dallas began recording with City and Colour in 2005.
