SYDNEY, NS — The stars who have made Cape Breton a music mecca will have a permanent place to shine.

The Cape Breton Music Industry Cooperative is creating a permanent hall of fame for Island artists and industry professionals.

Marc Botte, a member of the non-profit cooperative’s board of directors, said the Cape Breton Music Industry Hall of Fame will be located in the theater of the new Nova Scotia Community College campus on Sydney’s downtown waterfront.

INTRODUCTORY GALA

The room will include physical memorabilia, as well as interactive virtual and digital exhibits. He said the annual induction gala will be preceded by several days of performances and industry talks, similar to the East Coast Music Awards and Nova Scotia Music Week.

“We envision this gala as a great fundraiser for CBMIC, but also as an opportunity to celebrate our musical heritage, to celebrate the accomplishments of Cape Breton musicians,” Botte told Cape Breton Regional Municipality council. Brittany this week.

“And ultimately, the revenue generated by the Hall of Fame, as we honor those who have left their mark on the Cape Breton music scene, will then allow us to invest in the next generation of musical artists. Whether it’s making sure any five-year-old who wants to can get a musical instrument, supporting someone taking a course to learn audio engineering, supporting an artist to record sound first album and to support him for a tour on this very first album, and then possibly support them so that one day we can induct them into the hall of fame.

MAKE OFFICIAL

Botte has asked the board to recognize the Cape Breton Music Industry Hall of Fame as Cape Breton’s official music hall of fame, something the co-op will ask other boards and custodians to do. of the island to approve. They also hope to create a fame walkway, so Botte asked the council to consider this during the Charlotte Street Revitalization Project so they can trade sidewalk stones for stars.

NSCC’s new campus isn’t expected to be completed until 2024, so Botte said he wasn’t sure how many square feet the hall of fame would be. However, he said the community college was an integral part of the plan, and in addition to providing a venue, students would play a key role during the gala.

“It is the participation of NSCC that allows us to move forward with this project,” he said.

“This theater is going to be a living, breathing performance space where people learn about all aspects of music, performance and catering and all the supporting industry around it.”

MUSIC TO THEIR EARS

The Hall of Fame and struck a chord with CBRM advisors, who sang the project’s praises and unanimously agreed to Botte’s requests.

“It was about time – it was long overdue,” Coun said. James Edwards. “It’s so exciting.”

Com. Darren Bruckschwaiger agreed.

“Cape Breton musicians are celebrated around the world, we’re known for our music and we have so much talent here – it’s a great idea,” he said, suggesting that the stars of the Walk of Fame are spread throughout the CBRM. .

“A place like Glace Bay, I’m thinking of Matt Minglewood, and I’m thinking of Bruce Guthro on the north side – those plaques should be placed in those communities as well, with Charlotte Street. And I just named those two – I could probably include myself. I’ve been known to sing a few songs on a few pops, but I won’t get a star, I know that. But seriously, I’m so excited about it, really and sincerely. I just think it’s a good thing.

LASTING LEGACY

Botte said the hall of fame is another way the Cape Breton music industry co-operative is ensuring the island’s musical legacy lives on.

“What’s important is not just to revisit the past aspect of Cape Breton’s musical heritage, but to ensure that the musical heritage continues, by ensuring that we have the development, the programs and the resources to get the next Matt Minglewood, to get the next Gordie Sampson, to get the next Rita MacNeil, to get the next generation of Celtic fiddlers, and to make sure our musical development accelerates and doesn’t stagnate.

Industry Awards Recall What’s to Love About Austin Music

With a budget battered by a pandemic year, perhaps an apt reflection of the creative sector as a whole, the Austin Music Industry Awards bravely ventured where we had never been before.

Precisely, the undeveloped land adjoining the the Chronicle offices, on a wooden stage flanked by the volleyball court and overshadowed by a self-storage facility. To our surprise, Austin industry reps may have enjoyed the laid-back digs more than the old Emo scene – calling it old Austin, very 80s. A few compared the shindig sunny Sunday afternoon at an outdoor wedding, and certainly had some love to share for Austin on stage.

Instead of speeches on the podium, they lay on the sofa as guests on the Chronicle Music editor Kevin Curtin’s new cable access talk show, Couch locked. (The most comfortable sofa squish goes to the six staff members of the best music nonprofit HAAM.) Co-host Mike Wiebe appeared bandaged and bloodied, coming out of a coma so Curtin and fake stage producer Sarah Wolf could catch up with him on all the terrible things that have happened in the past two years.

Of the plague and NFTs, the saddest ‘aww’ audience came for a 2020 shutdown reference Barracuda.

Passage of Curtin’s old green plastic bong, which unfortunately got clogged during Mugwort‘s awarded Best New Club, infused with extra Austin flavor. Seven years into their tenure as the Industry Awards’ house band, Berkshire dogs stretched punny song picks for repeat winners, like the fit”Waterloooooo” in “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” and reworking the lyrics of Spoonis the single from “The Hardest KUTX”.

More love was delivered by the best live sound engineer Jamie Wellwarthveteran of the Bedroom at the back and Club Continental now behind the painting Meanwhile, Brewing Co.bringing his daughter, Uma, on the scene. First Time Winner of Best Music Photographer Jackie Lee Young thanked her fiancé, Derek Daniel Brown of hippie scum, for supporting her recent transition to full-time art. In Loving Memory of the Austin Artist Nanci GriffithI read his fantastical and poetically scathing 1998 open letter to the Texas music press.

As successor to Jean Aiellithe long-time driving time slot, that of KUTX Taylor Wallace accepted the legendary Eklektikos Host’s Hall of Fame award: “If you’ve ever been tasked before 9 a.m. with finding a dozen songs on the topics of pie, wind, dirt, or purses, you’ve may have been John Aielli’s producer,” Wallace said.

Aielli himself, who retired from the air in 2020, sent in a sweet video from home. After mentioning some of his favorite artist interviews – Shinyribs, Asleep at the wheel, Fragile graves, Tameca Jones, Atashand Peter Bay – the host added, “I just kept you up to date with what was going on and played you some great tunes, and maybe had a life comment or two that deserved your attention. “

In the struggling music economy of the past two years, declaring your love for Austin can feel like an act of resilience. Winner of Best Radio Personality Laurie Gallardo thanked a friend who had once found a note at the White horse “It actually said ‘Citizens vs. Laurie Gallardo’, because that kept me going.” In a letter read by his wife Celeste Quesadabest producer (and black pumas guitarist) Adrian Quesada joked, “I will always represent Austin, even though I look at real estate outside of it on a daily basis.”

A change from past years in the Best Music Festival category showed the growth and perseverance of Levitationwho returned to downtown Austin in the fall of 2021. Joined by The dark angels member of the group and co-founder of the festival sweet christian, Alex Maas graciously offered the best acceptance of the evening.

“We are extremely grateful to be noticed in this city,” said Maas. “Thank you, because we thought we were much better than Austin city limitsbut now you have checked it.”

Gary Brookerthe frontman of 1960s British rock band Procol Harum, died on February 19, aged 76, of cancer.

The London-born singer has led the band throughout its 55-year history, co-writing and singing their most famous song, 1967’s A Whiter Shade of Pale.

He was named an OBE in 2003 and A Whiter Shade of Pale was honored by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018.

Brooker has also toured with Eric Clapton and Ringo Starr and performed with Sir Paul McCartney, Bill Wyman, George Harrison, the Alan Parsons Project and many more. In 1996, he appeared alongside Madonna in Alan Parker’s film adaptation of avoid, playing Argentine Foreign Minister Juan Atilio Bramuglia.

Brooker was just 14 when he formed his first band, The Paramounts, at school. They signed to EMI Records, scored a minor hit with their first single, Poison Ivy, in 1964, and opened a few shows for the Rolling Stones.

Brooker then formed Procol Harum in 1966 and released their best-known song, A Whiter Shade of Pale, the following year. It became one of the most commercially successful singles of all time, selling over 10 million copies worldwide. At the first-ever Brit Awards in 1977, it was named co-winner (alongside Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody) of “Best British Pop Single 1952-1977”. In 2009 it was named the most played song of the last 75 years by UK radio stations.

The group followed up with a top 10 single, Homburg, and their third album, 1969’s A salty dog, is considered a masterpiece of progressive rock, ushering in an era of lush, orchestrated progressive rock. The band broke up in 1977 after a series of line-up changes. Brooker launched a solo career and toured with Eric Clapton’s live band in the 1980s, but reformed Procol Harum for a new album, The Prodigal Strangerin 1991.

Meanwhile, Procol Harum’s modern line-up continued to record and tour until the Covid pandemic put their plans on hold. They played their last gig with Brooker in Switzerland in 2019 and took advantage of their absence from touring to record a three-track EP, Missing people (living forever), which was released in May 2021.

Stevie Nicks is a phenomenal singer well known for her amazing songs and contributions to classics.

During her storied career, the singer has had a significant effect on the music world. More so, Nicks has chosen not to stay away from the way women are viewed in rock and has done her part to advance the agenda of female singers in the music industry.

MEGA

One co-star who has felt the music legend’s impact is Katy Perry. Nicks has previously expressed his love for the “Roar” singer and her style of music. And on one occasion, his love for Perry gave him friendly advice on what to do when in a feud with others in the music business.

“You don’t need rivals”

Nicks, a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, was interviewed for The New Yorker and opened up about the highlights of her career. While the conversation was ongoing, Nicks dropped a few tidbits about a conversation she had with Perry in the past.

The Fleetwood Mac member told Tavi Gevinson, a reporter, that she had a chance meeting with Perry at the Corinthia Hotel in London in 2012. The pair went on to discuss the rivalry in the music business as well as of how engaging in such issues was not ideal.

“She said, ‘So Stevie, who are your rivals?’ And I said, ‘I have no rivals.’ And her big blue eyes just got bluer and bluer,” the singer said. “And I said, ‘No Katy, I don’t, and neither do you. You are Katy Perry, you are who you are, you do what you do, and you are good at it. My name is Stevie Nicks, I do what I do and I’m good at it. We have no rivals. It’s just ridiculous.

Katy Perry comments on her alleged rivalry with Taylor Swift

At the time, Perry, 37, referenced Taylor Swift in their chat, citing her alleged feud with the award-winning pop star, which made headlines.

“She said, ‘Well, there’s like Taylor Swift’s army and there’s like Katy’s army and there’s like -‘ And I was like, ‘It’s just bulls – -t”,” Nicks added. “You just have to get away from that. Don’t keep that in your mind because then they win the game.”

Following the conversation with Nicks, Perry seemed to absorb the advice and implement his values. Although it took a while, she finally reached out to her co-worker and took the first step to ending the bad blood.

Perry reached out to Taylor Swift

In a 2019 interview with Australian radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O, Perry how she and Swift chose to put their feud behind.

“It was sort of a process. I sent him a literal olive branch and a note apologizing for my part in all of this at the start of his “Reputation” tour. I just thought she was about to embark on something new and big and needed some support,” Perry admitted.

She added: “As I was finishing mine, I realized how much we had in common, and maybe there are only five other people in the world who can have the same kind of conversations and understand. where we come from and that we should celebrate our commonalities and our friendship and be able to be there for each other.

Nicks relationship with Christine McVie

In his interview with The New Yorker, Nicks also opened up about his relationship with Christine McVie. The singer went into detail about how they both choose to be independent in their choices and don’t rely on anyone to validate their talents.

“We were very protective of each other. We made a pact, at the very beginning, that we would never be treated with disrespect by any male musicians in the community,” Nicks said. “And we stuck to it. I think we swore that, if we ever felt like we were being treated like this, we would get up and leave – and we did. We would just say, “Well, this party is over for us.”

Grimes was affectionately nicknamed “The Bulldog” for his notoriously steady rhythm behind the drums, a name he earned from mentor and Hi Records founder Willie Mitchell.

Hi Records was sold in 1977 and in the 1980s Grimes began to struggle professionally and became homeless. Later Grimes performed as a member of The Bo-Keys, and in 2021 he released his autobiography Timekeeper: My life in rhythm, recounting his life and career as an artist that left an indelible mark on the musical heritage of his hometown.

He appeared on such top ten hits as Alley-Oop and A Thousand Stars. In all, he released over 30 music albums and was a highly respected and sought after session drummer for decades.

In 1963, he was the victim of a motorcycle accident which caused the amputation of his right foot and part of his leg, but that never slowed him down. His home on Avenue D in Boulder City became something of a spectacle, as he dug a cave 26 feet deep in the backyard where, for a time, he operated an illegal radio station called KPOOP 1590 until it is shut down by the FCC.
