The Contact (Canvas Tears) nominated for two Music Nova Scotia Awards.

    HALIFAX, Sept. 27 /CNW/ - EFE MUSIC GROUP is proud to announce, The
Contact have been nominated for two Music Nova Scotia Awards; Pop/Rock
Artist/Recording of the Year and Group/Recording of the Year for their CD, The
Canvas Tears. The boys are finishing up on the last leg of their 7 week tour
through the US with Heath McNease and Red Umbrella. They were on the road
(Indianapolis, Indiana) when manager Mike Pope gave them the news. "Wow,
that's awesome guys, we're nominated with Plaskett and In-Flight," states
Jordon Allen - keys. The Contact are pleased and really happy to be keeping
with such good company. This CD has not come without its share of blood,
sweat, and tears. They pulled together a remarkable team of professionals;
Grammy award winning producer, Quinlan, mixing by Chuck Zwicky (Prince,
Chantel Kreviazuk, Soul Asylum), graphics by Invisible Creature (Coldplay, Red
Hot Chili Peppers, Good Charlotte), mastered by Dave Collins (The Police,
Bruce Springsteen, Soundgarden), engineering by Lil Thomas, and recording at
The Sonic Temple (Nova Scotia) and The Fiction Room (Ohio). The band recently
signed to Live Tour Artist and their schedule is quickly filling for 2008. A
Canadian tour is planned for early next year. Halifax fans will be exited to
hear that the guys will be ending this year's tour with a home show in
November. ,
    We are also pleased to announce that Eirinn Fraser (EFE MUSIC GROUP) has
been nominated for Promoter of the Year, Manager of the Year, and Industry
Professional of the Year. This news comes with great excitement as we recently
made changes to Eirinn Fraser Enterprise, designating it for non-entertainment
communications, creating EFE Music Group, offering a wide variety of services
within the music industry. We are in the midst of launching a digital media
distribution service company. Within Canada, we will be using the DMDS system.
"I love DMDS!" she states. "Sending music, photos, and band info to hundreds,
even thousands of media personal in seconds beats licking stamps and lugging
packages to the post office. It has proven to be an invaluable tool to
securely send music to magazines, newspapers, television, and radio within
Canada." The company will be announcing new ventures in the upcoming weeks.
