2014 | R&B/Soul Recording of the Year | JRDN ft. Kardinal Offishall | | The JUNO Awards

With his third studio album, Live My Dream (Kuya Productions/Fontana North), R&B sensation JRDN unveils a set of songs certain to cement his reputation as one of Canada’s brightest stars. On the album’s lead single, "Can’t Choose," a seamless blend of R&B and reggae featuring Canadian hip hop icon Kardinal Offishall, we find JRDN singing candidly about just where he draws the line between love and lust. As a singer, JRDN draws on a deep well of influences for Live My Dream – from Wu-Tang Clan, Jay-Z and Michael Jackson to Sam Cooke, Adele and Drake. Every writer and production team he’s worked with has also influenced him, but none more than Kuya. "On IAMJRDN," he says, "Kuya produced the whole project and we worked to tracks they made. On this project, we just caught a vibe, went with it and made a lot of tracks up on the spot in the studio. They come from an R&B background and have a lot of the same influences I have, so their production matches the style of music I do. They’ve really given me a platform, musically, to stand on and grow."
