Article One (NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Feb. 5, 2009—Inpop Records artists Article One and Newworldson both received 2009 Juno Award nominations, as announced by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) during a media conference held at Toronto’s Fairmont Royal Oak Hotel on Tuesday. The label mates were recognized in the same category, Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year, Newworldson for Salvation Station and Article One for Colors and Sounds.

The Juno nod marks Newworldson’s second nomination in this category, its first for independent release Roots Revolution (2007). “It’s such an honor to be acknowledged by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences,” said Mark Rogers of Newworldson. “To be nominated two years in a row is really fantastic! Congratulations to all the nominees in this category!”

Article One’s Matthew Piche also commented, “We all grew up watching and following the Juno Awards, so to be a part of such a prestigious Canadian event is truly incredible. Colors and Sounds is our best album yet, and we are very proud to be nominated alongside such great artists as Starfield, Downhere, Newworldson and Life Support.”

The Juno Awards, Canada’s top music honors, are presented annually to Canadian musical artists and bands to acknowledge their artistic and technical achievements in all aspects of music. Winners are currently chosen by members of the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences or a panel of experts.
