Chelsea Amber Nominated For 9 Canadian Gospel Awards

By David Farrell

She may not be a household name but Chelsea Amber has won close to 20 ECMA Awards and earned a Juno nomination since launching her career with the album New Beginnings in 2007.


The Bermudan-born gospel singer now living in Vancouver has just found out she’s up for a staggering nine nominations in the 2020 Gospel Music Association of Canada’s Covenant Awards, largely based on the strengths of her 2018 independently-released album, Face the Waves.

Is she surprised by the number of nominations?

You bet! Posting on Facebook (with the accompanying picture), she writes: “Yesterday I found out that I’ve been nominated in 9 categories for the 2020 GMA Canada Covenant Awards! I’m seriously blown away. We didn’t know how the album was going to do because we decided to take some creative risks. To see the Canada-wide support amazes me. I am thankful to be part of such an incredible community that loves Jesus AND encourages creativity. To God be the glory!
“I was asked which categories the nominations were for, so here they are:

Happy Anniversary, Archie: Alvvays' Debut Record Gets a 10th Birthday Re-Issue

The Canadian jangle pop group's first album will be available on a new cerulean blue vinyl with an unearthed bonus track, as well as the ten original songs — including breakout single 'Archie, Marry Me' — that launched their career in 2014.

A major Canadian indie rock album turns 10 today (July 22), and the band is celebrating with a special re-issue.

Alvvays' self-titled debut helped the group break through on an international scale, propelled by jangly guitars, aloof vocals and an expertly catchy single. "Archie, Marry Me," with its soaring chorus and pleading lyrics, became a wedding song for a generation of ambivalent millennials, earnest and sardonic at the same time.
