"Never has it been more important to come together and celebrate each other and the incredible resilience of our live music community. The past two years have been excruciating and yet we have persevered. Now, here we are - the moment has finally arrived.  Join us to recognize our peers and colleagues who have gone above and beyond, and led this sector through our many challenges. The Canadian Live Music Industry Awards is our time to shine the spotlight back stage and front of house, and thank, celebrate and acknowledge you and all you do." - Erin Benjamin, President & CEO  Canadian Live Music Association
