2022 JUNO Week returned in person finally, thanks to Covid-19, this marked the 1st time since 2019, that we are allowed to gather in Toronto with the support of the Government of Ontario and the City of Toronto. Toronto was home to the JUNO Awards for the first 20 years of its celebrations beginning in 1970 at St. Lawrence Hall, a historic venue that held an intimate 250 people. This will be the 27th time Toronto has held the awards. The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) festivities were allowed to gather and culminated inside the 2022 JUNO Awards on Sunday, May 15th at 8 pm, which made history with the 1st ever broadcast at an outdoor location for The JUNO Awards presentation which was held at Toronto’s stupendous Budweiser Stage and it was streamed nationwide on CBC TV, CBC Radio One and CBC Music, and stream live on CBC Gem, CBC Listen, and globally at CBCMusic.ca/junos, and CBC Music’s Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages.
Many of the most decorated JUNO winners of all time are from Toronto; Blue Rodeo, Murray McLauchlan, Neil Young, Rush, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, The Weeknd, and many more have all found their footings in the city. The province has also seen a lot of new faces among its nominees and winners including Alessia Cara, Ali Gatie, Daniel Caesar, Jessie Reyez, JP Saxe, Lennon Stella, NAV, and Shawn Mendes. Through the continued presence of the JUNOS in Toronto in 2022, musicians in Toronto and beyond will continue to benefit from CARAS’ initiatives to educate and develop talent, in partnership with the City of Toronto and other key partners.
Toronto’s been home to countless artists that have found success globally and the city’s concert venues have seen the rise of talent who’s headlined some of the world’s biggest stadiums. In addition to bringing incredible artists and outstanding entertainment to all corners of Canada, the JUNOS have brought great financial benefits to each host city over the years. As a result of hosting the awards broadcast, JUNO Week, and surrounding events, host cities have seen an economic impact averaging $10M.
‘’Toronto is a diverse music city unlike any other in Canada, and has produced some of our most loved artists from global superstars to emerging talent from Toronto’s many communities,‘’ said Allan Reid, President & CEO, CARAS/The JUNO Awards and MusiCounts. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to come back to Toronto, and celebrate together, in-person, for a JUNO reunion in 2022”
“We are excited to host the JUNO Awards in person, in Toronto,’’ said Mayor John Tory. ‘’We are eager to showcase our diverse and remarkable music scene and the artists, venues, and people behind it. Toronto is proud of its music and arts scene and being able to host the JUNOS again will help us continue to build up that scene. Our doors will be wide open to welcome the JUNOS home!’’
“Ontario is a renowned music and arts destination across Canada and North America,’’ said Lisa MacLeod, Ontario’s Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism, and Culture Industries. “Hosting the 2022 JUNO Awards in Toronto brings hope while showcasing the talent and significance of the arts, as we work to emerge stronger than before. Our government has invested $25 million to support artists and arts organizations across Ontario, as they deal with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to welcoming back visitors to Ontario, when it is safe to do so, and highlighting how Ontario offers the world in one province.”
Let’s take a step back in time for a moment shall we, to explain the historical background of the JUNO Awards, as it wasn’t always the JUNOS, it started as the RPM Gold Leaf Awards in 1964 by RPM editor and publisher Walt Grealis and record label executive Stan Klees. It soon became The JUNO Awards in 1971, the JUNO Awards were founded to raise the public profile and recognition of musical artists in Canada. So, from 1970 to 1974 – The very first RPM Gold Leaf Award was designed by JUNO Awards co-founder, record producer, and RPM Music Weekly Special Projects Director, Stan Klees. The 18-inch award was made out of walnut wood and designed to resemble a metronome. 1975 to 1983 The JUNO Awards were televised for the first time in 1975. With the move to television, Klees designed a taller (23-inch) acrylic version of the RPM Gold Leaf Award. The Awards have been renamed the JUNO Awards in honor of Pierre Juneau, the first chairperson of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). From1984-1999 small design changes were made to The JUNO Award statuette during this time period, but it retained its iconic metronome shape. The maple leaf inlay had changed to a record and JUNO inlay; the height of the Award was adjusted to make it easier to handle; and in 1996, a 25th Anniversary inlay was designed to honor the JUNO Awards’ 25th milestone. As well, from 2000-2010 as the Canadian music industry approached a new millennium, CARAS adopted a completely new award. Individually crafted by Shirley Elford, the human statuette was made of molten glass and wrapped in an upward spiraling musical staff. This beautifully symbolized the creativity and inspiration surrounding every artist. The JUNO Awards has evolved from an industry awards event to a weeklong festival that travels city to city across the country. It encompasses both public-facing fan events and industry/networking opportunities featuring a diverse array of Canadian artists and emerging talent. In addition to The JUNO Awards Broadcast, JUNO Week event programming includes JUNO Songwriters’ Circle, JUNOfest, JUNO Fan Fare, JUNO Cup, and more. Over the last 2 decades, JUNOS has traveled across Canada, since 2002, when The JUNO Awards went on the road to take the music to the fans and expanded its scope to include a series of public and private events outside of the Awards broadcast. Each host city has embraced its opportunity to support the JUNO Awards and build an enduring legacy of music programs in their market. In 2011, to honor its colorful history and musical legacy, The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) presented the new 2011 JUNO Award. The previous human statuette design is now represented within a solid volume crystal tower. This innovative technique pays tribute to Shirley Elford’s creative contributions over the past 11 years while symbolizing the evolution and future of Canada’s Music Awards. To celebrate the JUNO Awards 50th anniversary in 2021 three new statuettes have been created, honoring the late Shirley Elford’s individually crafted design. A gold version will be awarded to JUNO Award winners, a silver version for Special Award recipients, and a gold and silver version for Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees.

1st up Devon and Conner of Half Moon Run Grown Into Love in the 1st round sang and performed their hit Sun Lights Me Own in 2nd round and even played a 3rd song I Cant Figure Out What’s Going On
Serena Ryder, Peterborough’s favorite and I am a huge fan. She played music from her current album, The Art of Falling Apart and this album came from writing a speech prior to covid, “I wrote a keynote speech on my mental wellness journey and it was the 1st time that I decided to talk about details about what I had been through over the last 20 years of my life of touring. And anxiety and depression and lots of different diagnoses and lots of different undiagnoses, and trying to figure out just how to trust myself and find some peace in myself. And I felt that it was really important to talk about and I just finished writing the keynote speech and then I had some dates booked to write a record and I am just gonna keep on talking about this. So i wrote the keynote speech into the album. By the time it turned into music I almost feel like, well that’s the thing about music, it turns everything into medicine…it just does. Turns the most painful things into the most healing things and for me writing that record was for me, to turn that into the medicine for me and it really changed how I feel about myself and has given me the things that I needed, so it felt really good.” Her 1st song up was her last song from the album entitled Love Is In The Air and she incorporated the stage performers and audience to sing along with her, so beautiful. Serena Ryder was up 2nd and inside her 2nd song she got to express, “this song is about how I have learned to or learning to take care of myself and really what that means. It’s like taken me a while and I think I am getting better and better at it…a lot better at it actually, recently. One of the big parts of it for me has been figuring out what mental wellness means to me. For me, as I said earlier, it i=really is about trusting myself and really having trust in myself, and one of the big things that has helped me do that (not to say that I am not going to do it for the rest of my life, but it’s been 3.5 years since I had a drink of alcohol and I used to drink a whole lot). Life has just been sweeter and sweeter since I have n ot been drinking and I keep on joking with my friends that when I am 50 or 60 that I am going to have a winery and that’s when I am going to start drinking again, as wineries are a lot of work. It really has changed my life and really help me trust myself and that is the most important thingstrusting yourself. That is what i wrote this song about.” She perfected another fun piece called Better Now.
TOBI follwed as he sang his hit, Flowers, and in the 2nd round he sang City Blues.
Allison Russell shared her 1st round hit Kathy and 2nd round Quasheba.
NEXT ROUND OF 2 with Mustafa and Metric’s Emily Haines and Jimmy Shaw, Weather Station and Charlotte Wilson.
Mustafa did Come Back and didnt catch his 2nd piece.

The Weather Station did their Tried To Tell You and Ignorance.
