2014 | Roots & Traditional Album of the Year: Solo | David Francey | | The JUNO Awards

From carpenter to songwriter. Since leaving construction and recording "Torn Screen Door" in 1999, Scottish-born Canadian, David Francey has been recognized as one of today’s finest singer-songwriters. Francey has released 10 CDs to date. His most recent, So Say We All, has earned four nominations at the 2013 Canadian Folk Music Awards. Francey is a three time JUNO Award winner and also had the honour of receiving the prestigious SOCAN Folk Music Award. Greg Quill of the Toronto Star, says, "Francey has made a reputation for himself as one of Canada's most revered folk poets and singers… [His songs] are small and beautifully crafted pieces of work that have made Francey both a folk festival favourite and something of a latter-day Canadian poet laureate." And the SOCAN Words and Music magazine says, "A consummate craftsman…David Francey is one of the biggest stars of Canadian folk music."
