Congratulations to Audrey Ochoa for winning the top spot at the Edmonton Music Prize! A collaboration of the Edmonton Arts Council and Alberta Music, the award celebrates the achievements of Edmonton’s artistic community. After a stellar year of performing her compositions with GRAMMY winners and rising the US jazz charts, Audrey’s compositional and performance skills won over the jury. She beat out artists in the country, pop, urban, indie rock and world genres.
Poor Nameless Boy is set for an official showcase and a host of private showcases at Folk Alliance International’s annual conference. From February 13-17, he will perform brand new music from his upcoming EP with his full band.
