It didn’t take long for people to notice how good a Newfoundland and Labrador indigenous musician is.
Carolina East’s debut and self-titled album featuring the single “That’s Okay” has been nominated as the best country album for the 2018 Indigenous Music Awards in Winnipeg.
In addition to this latest nomination, East has also been nominated for Indigenous Artist of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards in Halifax.
She is excited to showcase her album at both of these events in May. She plans to release her second single in April 2018.
“I am honoured to represent Newfoundland and Labrador at the Indigenous Music Awards and the East Coast Music Awards,” East said in a news release.
“I'm humbled to be in the same category with so many talented artists,” she added.
Since the release of her album and single “That’s Okay”, she has been making waves all over Canada, especially within the Indigenous community.
East has climbed the chart on the Indigenous Music Countdown, a weekly syndicated Top 40 program airing on 12 radio stations across Canada including Sirius XM, and currently sits at No. 9.
