2022 BLUES ALBUM OF THE YEAR | Miss Emily | | The JUNO Awards

Full-time musician Miss Emily has called Kingston home now for 17 years. In late 2020 ‘Miss Emily LIVE at The Isabel’ was released to an international audience with overwhelmingly positive reviews. This release followed up her 2017 album ‘In Between’ featuring Gord Sinclair & Rob Baker from The Tragically Hip and garnered much interest from the blues community, for which she is very grateful.

She won two 2019 Maple Blues Awards (New Artist of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year) and was nominated for Entertainer of the Year.
