The JUNOS celebrations continue in Toronto, honouring the best in Canadian Music! The Cadillac Fairview JUNO FAN FARE took place this afternoon at Eaton Centre as some of the biggest names to emerge in music from Canada graced the stage at the Meet & Greet, giving fans an opportunity to meet some of their new faves! A welcome return to in-person events, encouraging safety protocols to be observed despite social distancing and mask-wearing guidelines loosening-up recently in Toronto. Delighted fans even walked away with Cadillac Fairview Gift Cards!
Appearing at the event were Toronto’s own JP Saxe, who has built a massive following worldwide, and his smash hit “If the World Was Ending” with Julia Michaels, has dominated airwaves globally. Vancouver Island’s Lauren Spencer-Smith, who is known for advancing to the Top 20 of American Idol, but also her 2019 effort UNPLUGGED, VOL. 1 EP also garnered her a JUNO nomination. Among the others to appear were Regina’s Tesher known for his viral hit on TikTok, “Jalebi Baby”; double nominee Savanna Ré from Toronto; JUNO-winning Rap Artist TOBi from Toronto; Ottawa’s Elijah Woods who was nominated in 2020 for hit “Ain’t Easy“; and of course, Toronto Band Valley, who also are JUNO-nominated.
While we didn’t get a chance to see them in-person based on scheduling during Saxe‘s slot, Manitoba’s Faouzia and London’s Emanuel also were at the event too – a shame as we wish we didn’t have to choose!
Saxe performed a two-songset for the audience and will be back in Toronto this July for a two-night stint at The Danforth Music Hall as part of his Feelings are Stupid Tour. He also is building his following internationally collaborating with American-Chinese Megastar Eric Chou on “A Little Bit Yours“.
