Best Female Solo Artist

Jill Barber

While 2005 wasn’t an incredibly busy year for Jill Barber, the Port Credit, Ontario, native assures us that we’ll be hearing much more from her in 2006. “I’m just really pleasantly taken aback,” she says of her third consecutive win in this category. “It’s nice to know that even if I’m not out there, pounding the pavement and playing lots of shows in my adopted hometown, that people haven’t forgotten me and are being patient with me while I write and record my new record.”

Runners-up: Jenn Grant, Rebekah Higgs
