Paquin Artists Dominate at the 2014 Junos with 8 Awards

Tegan and Sara, Serena Ryder, Bachman-Turner Overdrive and The Sheepdogs Heat Up Sunday Night’s Broadcast

Toronto, ON – April 1, 2014 – Paquin Artists Agency (PAA), a division of Paquin Entertainment Group, proudly salutes its roster of artists after a legendary 2014 JUNO weekend. One of Canada’s premier entertainment companies, PAA celebrates performers Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Serena Ryder, The Sheepdogs, The Strumbellas and Tegan and Sara, who together amassed a stunning collection of eight wins across a variety of categories.  

 “There is no doubt the stars aligned this weekend, “ says PAA president, Julien Paquin. “Any JUNO nomination that turns into an award is an incredible honour, but to witness our artists’ achievements applauded in this way, while in our hometown is something to savour.”

Tegan and Sara and Serena Ryder, who dominated the JUNO Awards with multiple wins, delivered exhilarating performances on Sunday night’s live broadcast, with Ryder also pulling double duty as co-host alongside Johnny Reid and Classified.  The night ended on a high note when music fans were treated to a historical moment: 2014 Canadian Music Hall of Fame inductees BTO, joined by PAA’s own Travis Good (The Sadies) and The Sheepdogs, performed together for the first time since 1991.

“This year's JUNO Awards brought together a handful of our agency's artists, many of whom we've proudly represented for a large portion of their young careers,” impressed Gilles Paquin, CEO/Founder of Paquin Entertainment Group. “I am deeply inspired by our performers, their musical evolution and the tremendous value they place on their fans. And I could not be more proud of Julien, Todd and the entire Paquin Artists Agency team, who have cultivated strong relationships with the artists they represent, and whose dedication is an integral part of our continued success.”
