The 2015 Juno Award Nominations have arrived!

They came in a red and white envelope that smelled of maple syrup and was pretty dog-eared after many long days on the road and in the recording studio — okay, well that’s what I envisioned, but they’re just on the the website. You know, like everything else.

Here’s some of the big categories with their nominees:

Francesco Yates Visits the Ocean 98.5 Amphitheatre

Posted on by Mel Z


We love company here at the Ocean 98.5 Studios. We’re spoiled, because when guests come, they often bring us treats…cupcakes, donuts, live acoustic music and amazing stories to share.

So naturally, we were thrilled to welcome Francesco Yates to the Ocean 98.5 Amphitheatre where we could get to know him better and listen to him sing and play guitar. He did not bring any food, and we’ll let it go — just this once. Because he was such a cool guy and sang us song songs:

Sam Smith Pays Tom Petty

Posted on by Forbes & Marshall

Stay With Me by Sam Smith has so far sold $ 4 million copies making him a superstar. With a song that popular it becomes ripe for comparsions and some thought that the chorus sounded like a slowed down verison of Tom Petty’s 1989 hit “Won’t Back Down”. We thought it sounded vaguely familair but not worth the 12.5% of royalites he paid Tom to settle out of court….until we heard this.
