Babette Hayward, Vogue Dots member, talks about ECMAs
The group received an ECMA nomination for Electronic Music Recording of the Year
As East Coast Music Week in Newfoundland nears an end, hundreds of musicians spent the week performing, winning awards and networking with delegates from around the world.
For Halifax electronic pop band Vogue Dots, this week has been its first opportunity to showcase its new sound to the music industry. The group is made up of producers Babette Hayward and Tynan Dunfield.
Vogue Dots picked up an ECMA nomination for its album Toska, which was up for Electronic Music Recording of the Year.
We asked Hayward to share with us one of the duo's most memorable moments from its first East Coast Music Week.
"Our best moment was probably getting to play on the Electronic Music Stage at the George Street Beer Market," she said. "It was really nice to see the scene on the East Coast represented so strongly. There was an amazing crowd, the room sounded great and we made some new friends. Sometimes, the electronic scene on the East Coast can seem kind of small, so it was great to get everyone in one place and see what they're working on. It really makes you feel inspired after a show like that, the sense of community is a good motivator."
