“The JUNO Effect”

Posted by bigincanada on May 4, 2009

I just came across an interesting press release about “The JUNO Effect,” in which the JUNO Awards cause artists’ sales to SKYROCKET. Definitely worth the read…

April 15, 2009

Meteoric Gains in Album and Digital Sales for Performers of CTV’s Broadcast of THE 2009 JUNO AWARDS – Dubbed “The JUNO Effect” –

— JUNO Award Winners Sam Roberts and City and Colour see biggest gains of over 200% in digital track sales; The Stills also soar up the charts —

Toronto, ON (April 15, 2009) – The stars have aligned once again to create what is termed “The JUNO Effect.” Following CTV’s broadcast of THE 2009 JUNO AWARDS on Sunday, March 29, live from General Motors Place in Vancouver and watched by 1.23 million viewers from coast to coast, JUNO Award-winning artists and performers such as City and Colour, Divine Brown, Nickelback, Sam Roberts and The Stills have seen album sales and digital downloads soar double and triple-fold following their exciting live performances and entertaining appearances on the JUNO AWARDS stage.


Just two weeks ago, Canada celebrated the best in the music industry and subsequently rushed to stores and online outlets to support their favourite Canadian artists. Data from Nielsen SoundScan confirms significant sales spikes following the broadcast for the following headlining performers:


Album sales:
Divine Brown – up 16%
Nickelback – up 33% 

Sam Roberts – up 88% 

Serena Ryder – up 18% 

Simple Plan – up 29% 

The Stills – up 126%

Digital Track sales:


City And Colour – “Sleeping Sickness” – 230% gain 

Divine Brown – “Sunglasses” – 75% gain 

Nickelback – “Something In Your Mouth” – 99% gain 

Sam Roberts – “Them Kids” – 236% gain 

Serena Ryder – “Little Bit Of Red” – 62% gain 

Simple Plan – “Your Love Is A Lie” – 59% gain 

The Stills – “Being Here” – 189% gain 



CTV’s two-hour broadcast of THE 2009 JUNO AWARDS attracted an average audience of 1.23 million viewers, and pulled in more viewers from 9-11 p.m. than any other broadcaster, with total viewers Additionally, more than 4 million viewers watched part of the show, which was broadcast in High Definition and 5.1 Surround Sound from General Motors Place in Vancouver, British Columbia. The audience compares to the broadcast of Canada’s Music Awards in 2005 (1.217 million) and 2006 (1.225 million) on CTV.

THE 2009 JUNO AWARDS was jam-packed with performances by 18 different artists, and was hosted for the second year in a row by comic sensation Russell Peters who wowed audiences with a colourful and riotous Bollywood act and opening monologue. 



Multiple JUNO Award winners Nickelback kicked off the show performing “Something in Your Mouth” amid a sizzling pyrotechnical display. Other highlights included Songwriter of the Year Dallas Green teaming up with special surprise guest Gord Downie for a beautiful performance of “Sleeping Sickness” while Canadian music icon Bryan Adams sang “Walk on By” accompanied by Kathleen Edwards on violin.

Crystal Shawanda, Divine Brown, Sam Roberts, Sarah McLachlan, Serena Ryder, Simple Plan, The Stills, and collaboration by Canadian folk-rockers Great Big Sea, Hawksley Workman and Eccodek topped off a star-studded show.



Since CTV joined forces with CARAS in 2002, The JUNO Awards have travelled across Canada, bringing a live, electrified stadium show to millions of Canadians. CTV has broadcast The JUNO Awards from St. John’s (2002), Ottawa (2003), Edmonton (2004), Winnipeg (2005), Halifax (2006), Saskatoon (2007) and Calgary (2008), Vancouver (2009).

Still Hip After 26 Years

Posted by bigincanada on February 13, 2009

CANADIAN ROCK ICONS “THE TRAGICALLY HIP” TO RELEASE 12TH STUDIO ALBUM ‘WE ARE THE SAME’ ON 07 APRIL, 2009

We Are The Same

Toronto, ON – 12 February, 2009 – Universal Music Canada (UMC), the country’s leading music company today announced that Canadian icons The Tragically Hip will release their highly anticipated 12th studio album, We Are The Same on 07 April, 2009. Powerhouse legend Bob Rock, once more on the dials, tunes the words and music of one of our country’s great enigmas and talents into something completely new and yet immediately recognizable on We Are The Same.

The Tragically Hip, a dozen albums and 26 years in the making, shows us once again not only why they are but who they are, snowshoeing through new land while sowing seeds for all of us secret musicians and poets and citizens hungry for a chance. And a change. We Are the Same, brings its listeners something beyond the unexpected: actual hope. Gordon Downie’s lyrics—backed by a band ripe with confidence and skill—tackle what we might assume had passed far under the bridge.

Comfortable in their own skin, but the men of The Tragically Hip are still hungry to explore. With the same heart of the boys who penned and played “38 Years Old,” the band shows us 20 years later that wisdom indeed comes with age, and that heart doesn’t change. We Are The Same cumulative effect is one of genuine comfort—or maybe much needed consolation. This iconic band, at the peak of its powers, rests a warm hand on its listeners’ shoulders.

We Are The Same was recorded and mixed by Bob Rock at the band’s Bath House studio in Kingston, Vancouver and Maui.

We Are The Same track-listing:
1. Morning Moon
2. Honey, Please
3. The Last Recluse
4. Coffee Girl
5. Now The Struggle Has A Name
6. The Depression Suite
7. The Exact Feeling
8. Queen Of The Furrows
9. Speed River
10. Frozen In My Tracks
11. Love Is A First
12. Country Day

Critically acclaimed for over two decades, The Tragically Hip has been at the heart of the Canadian music scene for evoking a strong emotional connection between their music and their fans that remains unrivalled in this country. A five-piece group of friends including Robby Baker (guitar), Gordon Downie (vocals, guitar), Johnny Fay (drums), Paul Langlois (guitar) and Gord Sinclair (bass), who grew up in Kingston, Ontario, The Hip has achieved the enviable status of a band that enjoys both mass popularity with over 8 million albums sold worldwide, as well as peer recognition through 31 Juno Award Nominations and 11 wins.
