GOOD LUCK! Local Artists on Polaris Long List

The renowned Polaris Music Prize has unveiled their Long List of Canadian Albums for 2016 and quite a few local musicians are on it! 

Hamilton electronic music-makers Junior Boys and Jessy Lanza grace the list. 
The announcement of the Short List (which will whittle the long one to just the top ten) will be on July 14, 2016.  The prize winner will be awarded at the Polaris Gala (September 19, 2016 at The Carlu in Toronto).

The top candidate will earn $50,000 and the rest of the Short List will receive $3,000.


Here is the complete Long List.
