The 2019 East Coast Music Awards Show took place yesterday and featured Canadian rapper Classified as one of the night’s biggest attractions (and winners).
Admist performances by Class, Catherine MacLellan, Dave Gunning, Fortunate Ones, Hillsburn, Jimmy Rankin, and a bunch of other great acts, the HalfLife Records general pulled in arguably the biggest award of the night.
Classified won the Album of the Year for his self-produced project, Tomorrow Could Be The Day Things Change, and the album also earned him the title of Rap/Hip-Hop Recording of the Year.
Classified was also nominated for Fans’ Choice Video of the Year (the winner was Makayla Lynn for the Scott Simpson-directed “Joyride”), and in a couple of categories where winners have yet to be announced including 2019 Solo Recording of the Year, and 2019 Songwriter of the Year.
“What an incredible show! A huge congratulations is in order for all the awards winners and nominees. Thank you to tonight’s amazing performers and to Jonathan Torrens, who once again proved to be a hilarious and gracious Awards Show host,” says Andy McLean, CEO of the ECMA.
“The week is still young and we have so many more fantastic events lined up, including the ECMA Friday and Saturday Night concerts, the Trinity Sessions showcases, the Celtic Brunch and much more. We’re excited to see the streets of Charlottetown come alive with music all weekend long!”
The remaining 2019 East Coast Music Awards, including the Industry Awards, will be handed out on Sunday, May 5 as part of the East Coast Music & Industry Awards celebration taking place in the Confederation Ballroom at Delta Hotels by Marriott Prince Edward at 7:30 p.m. The evening features performances by Paper Lions, Rose Cousins, Old Man Luedecke, and Postdata.
In other Classified news, the video for “Cold Love” (featuring Tory Lanez) is expected to drop today, and roughly an hour ago he shared a new track he produced for David Myles called “Not This Time.”
