The JUNOS. BreakOut West. Manitoba Live. Polaris. Calling 2014 the Year of Music in Manitoba is almost an understatement...
Winnipeg was the official capital of Canadian music as excitement amped up for The 2014 JUNO Awards, which recognized homegrown acts with 13 nominations. The massive event took over Winnipeg in March for a week of fun including packing local venues for JUNOfest, a glittery invite-only gala, and the big ticket televised spectacle at the MTS Centre. Winnipeg also hosted many lead-up events and "Random Acts of JUNO" everywhere from transit buses to shopping malls and frozen skating trails to indie coffee shops, proving that here in Winnipeg, we really do speak music.
The Uniter is teaming up with Manitoba Music and the West End Cultural Centre once again this year and the showcase will happen on January 15, 2015 at the WECC.
Do you think you are one of the five local acts to watch in 2015? If so, please tweet a brand new YouTube video (it can be simple audio, a full on production or you singing in your bathroom - just make it your best song) @TheUniter with the hashtag #UNITERFIVER between now and December 18, 2014. Acts that meet the criteria will be added to The Uniter's site on December 19. Views don't count, the winners will be taken from how many "likes" the video gets on YouTube. Voting will end on January 2, 2015 at noon.
