2012 JUNO NOMINATIONS: Congrats to Tangents North Music artists Peter Katz and David Francey!


We are pleased to announce that two TNM artists have received 2012 Juno Award nominations. For David Francey, a well-known icon in the Canadian folk/roots scene, the two nominations (Roots & Traditional Album of the Year, Solo, for Late Edition, and Music DVD of the Year for Burning Bright) are his fifth and sixth Juno nominations. Francey has a fierce competitor in the Music DVD of the Year category, though - TNM's own Peter Katz has received his first ever Juno nomination for his beautifully produced Peter Katz and Friends: Live At The Music Gallery.

"It was a massive shock, not something I thought I would ever see happen in my lifetime," writes Katz in a recent post on his website, reflecting on hearing the news of the nomination. "It was a good day."

Whatever the outcome, we're proud of our artists- congratulations, David and Peter! We're rooting for you!

Hi Folks!

My new Live CD/DVD - Peter Katz and Friends: Live at the Music Gallery is out on iTunes WORLDWIDE TODAY, right now, immediately! (right HERE) Actually, only the audio is available on iTunes, if you would like the CD/DVD combo then that can be ordered right HERE or at any of my upcoming CD/DVD release tour shows.

I recorded this show back in May of 2010 not really knowing what I was going to do with it, but as I started listening back to it, I realized that for many of the songs, these live versions were THE versions I had always wanted people to hear. They feel like the 'real' incarnation of many of the songs, funny how things work... You can decide for yourself of course by visiting this special page where you can DOWNLOAD 2 FREE songs from the CD! Then, if you like what you hear, you can either order the CD/DVD or get the audio of the whole concert immediately on itunes. There's also a video player at the free download page where you can get a sneak peak of the DVD content!

David Francey - Burning Bright

Born in Scotland, David Francey came to Canada a lad of twelve. Raised with working-class values, he spent most of his life as a labourer. All the while, David chronicled his times in countless songs that he wrote on the job or while driving to work.

When friends and family finally pushed him to share his songs with the public, the response was overwhelming and David soon found himself embarking on a new career.

Now touring the world with many albums and numerous awards to his name, David Francey's star is burning bright.
