Silver Winner Rich Aucoin

Bronze Winner Scientists of Sound

Neon Dreams nabbed Best Electronic and Best Pop Band this year, and the trio is happy to be slotted in either or both. “We’ve transitioned a lot from EDM but we’re still very much electronic,” says drummer Adrian Morris, ahead of a national tour opening for Ria Mae. “Our recording processes and in our live show, we’re using samplers and a lot more digital elements.” The rising-yet-humble radio stars—who made national news when they exited Hedley’s arena tour after Jacob Hoggard was accused of sexual assault—appreciate the nod: “We just want to thank Halifax,” says Morris, “for supporting us through a very rollercoaster of a year.”
