Best Solo Artist

Gold Winner Mo Kenney

Silver Winner Adam Baldwin

Bronze Winner Reeny Smith

“It’s sort of scary because it’s all on you—like, if people don’t like it it’s because I suck. But, on the other hand, it’s nice to have all that creative control: My vision and whatever I want it to be,” says Mo Kenney of the two sides of being a solo artist. “But I’m lucky because I have Joel Plaskett who can check out all my demos,” she adds with a laugh. The singer-songwriter spent most of 2019 touring, cracking into the American market. “I’m not sure what makes me stand out, but I know that since I started playing music I’ve felt support in Halifax and Dartmouth.”
