The Juno Awards are obviously well known for celebrating new and exciting Canadian music. Now they’re going to help it thrive, with the help of Slaight Music,and the fruit of that partnership The Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class.
The Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class is a brand new initiative devoted to developing the careers of musicians across Canada. JUNO Award Winners Sam Roberts, Max Kerman (of Arkells) and producer Gavin Brown are all amongst the ‘Super Jury’ that will choose the three finalists that will participate in the program.
The inaugural ‘master class’ includes a week-long customized artist development program co-developed with Canada’s Music Incubator at Coalition Music. The one-of-a-kind program provides hands-on mentoring with industry professionals, networking and opportunities for collaboration. “Slaight Music remains committed to assisting, promoting and developing opportunities for Canadian musicians to flourish and the Allan Slaight JUNO Master Class is a fabulous extension of our objectives,” said Gary Slaight, CEO /President Slaight Communications. “My father, Allan, was a true leader in championing Canadian artists beginning with Gordon Lightfoot, and I know that he is proud to have this initiative named in his honour.”
