The JUNO Awards announced today that Caveboy, Ivory Hours, and Quake Matthews have been selected as the 2018 JUNO Master Class winners. Chosen by a jury comprised of JUNO alumni (Lights, Kardinal Offishall, Arkells frontman Max Kerman, among others), this year’s winners will receive support from Canada’s premier artist development program to propel their careers to the next level and get “JUNO ready” before heading to the 2018 JUNO Awards in Vancouver.
“It’s an honour to play a part in introducing the next generation of artists to a Canadian audience,” said Lights. “It was a privilege to be a part of the selection process in choosing this year’s winners with a panel of people I respect and admire hugely. We look forward to seeing the incredible things this year’s finalists will do with the opportunities awarded to them by the JUNO Master Class.”
Winners will receive an all-inclusive trip to Toronto for a week-long mentorship program (October 23 – 27, 2017) with leading Canadian artists and industry trailblazers. The program concludes with an industry showcase night in Toronto at the Rivoli. The winners will also receive a trip to the 2018 JUNO Awards in Vancouver, an opportunity to perform at JUNOfest and a chance to perform at the JUNO Gala Dinner & Awards on March 24. The JUNO Master Class also awards winners with studio time at a recording studio, a cash investment in their careers, and more.
