Artists who apply for a 2018 FVMA will also be eligible for inclusion on a compilation record of artists from across the first three years of the Fraser Valley Music Awards. Including the record just released last month on behalf of 2017 FVMA nominees Stephen Carl O’Shea and The Sylvia Platters, ‘Shadow Steps’, by next year CIVL should have funded 4 separate vinyl pressings (800 total units) as part of the FVMA’s.
“It’s really exciting that ‘Shadow Steps’ has just this week entered the National !Earshot Charts at #49 for its first week,” says CIVL Station Manager Aaron Levy. “It’s so cool to see this new record find some success just as we look towards printing full length LP’s for multiple winners this next year. It’s so incredibly encouraging!”
For the second year in a row hosting and coordinating duties fall to award show veteran comedian and writer Harry Doupe. Anyone interested in participating in the events planning for the December 19th Gala, sponsorship or other questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
