Amero wearing first Juno nomination on sleeve

  • Print

When Don Amero heard the recently announced list of nominees for the 2013 Juno Awards, it must have been music to his ears.


The St. Boniface-based recording artist, who grew up in the North End, has been nominated for Aboriginal Album of the Year for Heart On My Sleeve — his fourth album, released in October 2012, and first Juno nomination.


"Being nominated for a Juno Award is the culmination of hard work and the support of many people, and it’s a very rewarding feeling," Amero said in news release. "I’m really proud of Heart On My Sleeve, and happy that the album has been well received so far — not only by fans, but also by the music industry."


The former hardwood flooring installer — who describes his style as a mix of roots, pop and country — has won several awards in his career to date, including Male Entertainer of the Year at the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards and Male Artist of the Year at the 2009 Canadian Aboriginal Music Awards.


The 2013 Juno Awards will be held at the Brandt Centre in Regina on Sun., April 21. To learn more about Amero, visit www.donamero.com.
