Who would you have nominated? The Juno nominations came out this week. Prominently featured are Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne ... and Feist and Arcade Fire. Established names like Anne Murray, Blue Rodeo, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Tom Cochrane all scored one or more nominations. But so did Rufus Wainwright, Emilie Claire Barlow, Justin Rutledge, Jully Black, Little Miss Higgins, The Gryphon Trio, Measha Brueggergosman and Chromeo -- Q guests all.
Who are you listening to that the Junos passed on by? Do the awards do a good enough job in recognizing up and comers? If you had to pick just one -- who shaped Canadian music more than any other artists this year?
