There’s some good Foothills representation among the 2024 YYC Music Awards People’s Choice nominees.

The local acts in the mix include Kelsey Raine featuring Rocky Mountain Maniacs, Alice Awake, Hanna Taylor, and Talia Sargent.

“Right now, it’s the first round of voting,” explains Sargent. “You can only vote for one person, and you can only vote one time per IP address.”

This is Sargent’s second YYC Music Awards nomination, having been up for Pop Recording of the Year in 2021.

Okotokians may recognize Sargent from Okotoks Dawgs games, where she often sings the national anthem and seventh-inning stretch.

“I have a couple of shows lined up, check out my social media to stay updated. I’m also going to be going to Vancouver to work with some local people there on my music and acting stuff there, which will be super fun.”

Voting for the People’s Choice Award ends on Friday, July 12, and votes can be cast on the YYC Music Awards website.
