With the support of FACTOR and the radio broadcasters of Canada the Western Association of Broadcasters is excited to announce Jess Moskaluke as our feature entertainment at our prestigious Gold Medal Awards Gala on Thursday, June 6, 2019 at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.
An internationally celebrated artist, Jess Moskaluke (MDM Recordings Inc. / Universal Music Canada) continues to dazzle the country music world with her infectious love of country music. Acclaimed in 2017 as the first Canadian female country artist to have a song in the Top 5 since 2008 (Drive Me Away - #3), and the first female Canadian country artist since [her childhood idol] Shania Twain to achieve PLATINUM single status (with “Cheap Wine and Cigarettes”), she has achieved not one, but three Top 10 hits with her respective singles, “Kiss Me Quiet”, “Take Me Home” and “Drive Me Away” and recently receive a GOLD award for “Kiss Me Quiet”.
A multiple 2015 and 2018 JUNO Award nominee and crowned the 2017 JUNO Award winner for Country Album of the Year, Moskaluke is also a three-time consecutive Canadian Country Music Association recipient for “Female Artist of the Year” (the first resident of Saskatchewan in the history of the awards to achieve this title), a 2017 SOCAN Award winner and in the summer of 2017 was presented with five SCMA Awards including “Fan’s Choice Entertainer of the Year”. With a growing fan base, she now has over 32 million views on YouTube to date and in 2016, Moskaluke had the #1 Most Played Song (“Take Me Home”) at Canadian Country Radio and was the top spun Canadian female artist for the second year in a row.
Moskaluke released her highly anticipated brand new EP “Past The Past” in November (2017). Collaborating with sought-after, Grammy nominated producer/songwriter Corey Crowder (Chris Young, Cassadee Pope, Eric Paslay); the EP reflects Moskaluke’s textured vocals and emotive sensibilities across all seven tracks. From the progressive yet familiar “Past The Past” to “Kill Your Love” (the 2nd single from Past The Past), her ability as a vocalist and her tenacity has shaped not only her character but come alive throughout her performances, earning coveted spots on the road with Darius Rucker and Jon Pardi as well as a headlining performance at the 2017 Boots and Hearts music festival in addition to high profile interviews and performances including CBC q with Tom Power (twice) and a 60-minute home movie with CMT/Corus to name a few.
