Three CIMA Award Winners Are Announced

By FYI Staff

Due to the pandemic, CIMA's Celebration and Awards Gala will not be held in 2021, but, as part of the Business Summit on June 22 & 23, the trade org will still be honouring three Canadian heavyweights within the industry with awards for their immense contributions to the indie music sector.


Veteran artist manager, agent, DJ, and label executive William "Skinny" Tenn is recipient of The Builder Award, one designed to spotlight outstanding individual(s) (or organizations) who have made a significant, influential and longstanding contribution to the Canadian independent music industry.

Violinist, bandleader (Sultans of String) and producer Chris McKhool will be honoured with the new The Pivot Award, introduced to acknowledge an individual (or group) who has responded to the pandemic in positive, impactful and innovative ways.
