Best Artist / Band To Turn Up Loud

Gold Winner Jessie Brown

Silver Winner Black Moor

Bronze Winner Dumpster Mummy

Jessie Brown wound down (up?) last year with the release of her Jon Epworth-produced album, Keeping Appearances, which won an East Coast Music Award and is up for three at Nova Scotia Music Week this weekend. “I was honestly shocked. It meant a lot, especiallyin the rock category because I don’t always know if it I fit in,” says Brown of the ECMA. “I’m lucky the album resonated with people so personally. It’s doing much better than I thought it would in the industry.” On December 7, she’ll join forces with Lor Sangster of Worst Part and a handful of local bands for Supporting Acts, a benefit show for Unison Benevolent Fund, at The Seahorse, echoing her album release show’s fundraiser for Adsum House. “Thanks for letting me be a weird little loudmouth,” she says to the readers, “with all my feelings.”
