The 2019 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Kevan Funk, for his clip for Belle Game’s Low. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos, including this one from an acclaimed indie rock trio.


Close Talker - Half Past Nine

Close Talker is an indie rock band from Saskatoon composed of Will Quiring, Matthew Kopperud, and Chris Morien. The inspiration for Half Past Nine came about from a moment they all shared at a local music festival. Watching one of their pals performing on stage surrounded by friends. It was a special moment for them. So this song is about hanging on to those happy times, enjoying them while they last because life is short. Be thankful for one another and enjoy each other.

The video includes themes of chasing moments or feelings from the past, only to recognize that you’ll always be chasing if you don’t stop and enjoy the simple and often overlooked beauty around you.

The music video was filmed on Vancouver Island.

A Conversation With The Tragically Hip Manager Jake Gold Before His Induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame

The veteran manager who's worked with The Hip, The Watchmen, The Pursuit of Happiness and others will be honoured at CMW's Canadian Live Music Industry Awards on June 4.

Against the backdrop of the Toronto skyline, Jake Gold, the manager behind The Tragically Hip, will be inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame on June 4, 2024. The ceremony will take place at the Westin Harbour Castle at the 2024 Canadian Live Music Industry Awards as part of Canadian Music Week (CMW).

Retiring CMW president Neill Dixon praises Gold as an adept manager and influential figure in shaping iconic bands. Most notably, Gold helped break The Tragically Hip early in their career, reuniting with them after Gord Downie's death to lead them into a posthumous new act. They've stayed surprisingly active with Gold overseeing projects like the Saskadelphia EP and an upcoming Amazon documentary series.
