New York, NY -- (October 30, 2008) – Integrity Music’s Joel Augé (pronounced “Ojhay”) won his first ever Covenant Award for Folk/Roots Song Of The Year for his song, “On The Blue,” at the 30th Annual Covenant Awards on October 24, 2008, presented by Gospel Music Association of Canada.
Over the past 30 years, GMA Canada has been serving Christian artists through the Covenant Awards and has partnered with the Canada Christian Music Conference and Shine FM Cross Canada Talent search to provide a week when artists can gather to learn, grow, network, celebrate what God is doing through music in Canada.
Augé, an Ontario resident, serves as a worship leader for The Meeting House family of churches. And, while On The Blue marks his first "solo" effort, he has been performing and recording since 1999 with the bands Capstone, Six Days and Hewit, whose music has been featured on Canadian National Network television, Lifetime Television, The Hallmark Channel and ABC.
The critically-acclaimed On The Blue (http://www.myspace.com/joelauge) offers 12 vertically-inspired songs about life, faith and love delivered on a pop/folk canvas with the able help of producer Stephen Leiweke, known for his work with American Idol finalist Chris Sligh.
Joel is currently touring and appearing at various seminars and conferences though December 6. He has been sharing his music with US audiences since the spring with appearances at major festivals and seminars as well as a West Coast tour with Integrity label mate Lincoln Brewster.
