Edmonton AM narrows theme music contenders down to 3 finalists
Listen to the three finalists and let us know which is your favourite
You may have noticed some new theme music playing on Edmonton AM on Tuesday, just after World Report.
We've spent the last month collecting your musical submissions in the quest to update our theme song.
Now, we've picked our three favourites, and are giving each a test run on the show before we make any decisions:
Nuela Charles, The Good in Me
Billed as "Edmonton's soul-pop siren," Nuela Charles is known for her atmospheric electronic and future-retro music. She's the 2013 recipient of the Edmonton Music Prize and also won the Lieutenant Governor General Emerging Artist Award in 2014.
The Royal Foundry, All We Have
Edmonton AM first met The Royal Foundry at our Canada Day show in 2015. Known for their up-tempo folk-pop blend, the band has been nominated for awards across Canada, and has performed alongside the likes of Paul Brandt and George Canyon.
Royal Tusk, Years Ago
This relatively new Edmonton-based band has some older roots in the city, in the form of several members from Ten Second Epic. Known for its "shaggy, tenacious force with hints of Americana, soul and a whole lotta heart," the band's first album, Mountain, was released on June 10 by Hidden Pony Records.
What do you think?
Now, we want your help. Give each of the tracks a listen, and let us know which is your favourite. We'll keep your votes in mind as we decide.
You can also share your choice on Twitter using #EdmAMtheme.
We will officially announce the winner on air during the last half hour of Thursday's show, and will debut our official new theme song on Oct. 16.
