CBC Music Searchlight shines on Windsor again

In 2009, our favourite venue in Windsor was voted Best Live Music Club in Canada by listeners of CBC Radio 3: the 60-person capacity Phog Lounge.

In 2011, N2DS2W was pretty proud to make the top 60 Searchlight list for Canada's Best Music Website.

In 2014, Searchlight has found Windsor again. Windsor's own singer-songwriter Crissi Cochrane has made the regional finals for Canada's Best New Artist, beating out hundreds of other artists. It's been great to watch her talent take flight from birds to blossom to the full bloom of her recent full-length release, Little Sway. Listen: "And Still We Move" from Little Sway.

Prior to 2012 winners were happy to get a trophy. Now, the winner gets to take home $20,000 worth of music equipment from Yamaha Canada Music. Voting continues at CBC Music. Good luck Crissi!
