Edmonton Arts Council Grant Recipients 2019

From the Edmonton Arts Council

“Many of Edmonton’s exceptional musicians have been making waves locally and nationally. Artist project grants ensure songs from Edmonton artists continue to be sung and help to get their work out to a wider audience. With many artists receiving large project grants, keep an eye out for new music from members of our dynamic music scene.
– JUNO nominated singer-songwriter Nuela Charles will explore soul and pop sounds of the 1970s on her new record.
– Winning the 2019 Edmonton Music Award for Country Recording of the Year was just one accomplishment in this big year for country band The Prairie States. With their artist project grant, the band will keep the momentum going and record a new six-song EP.
– Maria Dunn Music will record her seventh studio album. This new collection of songs celebrates the stories of real people, brings history to life and pays tribute to the courage of those who strive to make our world a better place.
– Brandon Baker of Electric Religious will record a new album.”

This year, 31 artists and projects have been awarded a large Artist Project grant (between $5,001 and $25,000), approved through the EAC’s peer assessment process.
