2013 | Breakthrough Group of the Year (Sponsored by FACTOR and Radio Starmaker Fund) | Hey Ocean! | | The JUNO Awards

Hey Ocean! is to many the quintessential West Coast band. With three Vancouverites at its core (Ashleigh Ball, David Beckingham, and David Vertesi), it’s true that their roots, their name, and many of their lyrics hark back to the pacific shores they call home. However, over the last six years they have earned a reputation as much more than just ambassadors of the Pacific Northwest and are gaining the reputation for being one of Canada’s best young bands.
