Jasmine Netsena: Winner

“Folk-rooted songstress Jasmine Netsena dazzles with her new debut album.”
- New Canadian Music 

Jasmine Netsena won Best Folk/Acoustic CD last week in the Aboriginal Peoples’ Choice Music Awards for her debut record “Take You With Me”. The awards feature emerging and established indigenous artists from all over North America.

Jasmine released her debut CD “Take You With Me” in April 2014, and since then has crossed the country doing over 30 shows in 7 provinces, in a few weeks span. Her hard work has paid off and the fans she has picked up, along the way, Jasmine says have really come through for her. “It’s an amazing feeling to know your work has the support of your friends and fans, from across the country”.

Jasmine has shared the stage with many acts including Emerson Drive, Crystal Shawanda and will be part of the Bluefeather Music Festival, taking stage the same night as Buffy Saint Marie, in Whitehorse, on November 7th. This Northern based artist, Fort Nelson, BC, is very thankful to everyone for their support and votes “Thanks to all my friends and fans for giving me the honour of this award”.

The Aboriginal Peoples’ Choice Music Awards (APCMAs) were handed out in Winnipeg over 2 nights September 11 and 12 in Winnipeg, with full broadcast on the Aboriginal Peoples’ Television Network.
2014 is shaping up as a banner year for Jasmine Netsena, thanks to this vibrant and richly rewarding album. It is indeed one you will want to take with you.
We are all very proud for her.
