SABS 6th Birthday Salute for July 23rd…

Posted: July 23, 2016

Oh my heart!

A #SABS6 Birthday Salute from two of the sweetest people on the planet - not to mention the most talented! Two members of NL's award winning band The Once - it's Geraldine Hollett & Phil Churchill.

POD july 23Enter their names and you'll be eligible to win a copy of "The Call of the Ocean" by Jim Wellman as our prize of the day for July 23rd, 2016 and qualify for our STELLAR STAY grand prize draw.

When we tell you sweetest - we're not kidding.   Making time during their time off (which is pretty scarce these days) to send in this salute means the world to us.  Mainly because our celebration wouldn't be complete without them.  In fact one of our first interviews here on SEA AND BE SCENE was with a 'brand new trio out of Newfoundland'- The Once.  Fresh on the scene - Geri and Phil, along with Andrew Dale were incredible sports back then chatting, singing and playing our very first edition of How Well Do You Know Your Homeland Trivia.

Olé, Olé - The OnceJust have a look at the bottom of this post and you'll see they've been such an incredible part of our on-going celebration of Canada's East Coast over the past 6 years.  And throughout that time, it's been amazing to chronicle their steady pace to greatness.  From their multiple award wins as independant artists and festival touring, to their signing to Nettwerk Records and world tour with Passenger, to their latest release of DEPARTURES which took home the 2015 ECMA award for Folk recording of the year - and all the awards and adventures since. They never cease to amaze us with their phenomenal talents, their side-splitting humour and their kindred spirits.

We put The Once on SEA AND BE SCENE TV's Ones To Watch List for 2016 for so many reasons including their own headlining tour in Australia and a brand new album slated for release later this year.  We can't wait to hear what they've created and we so look forward to reporting on their incredible success for many years to come.


We're ever so grateful to Geraldine, Phil and Andrew for allowing us to be there for The Once's wonderful journey!

And to you Geri and Phil - for breaking from your break to send us this sweet #SABS6 Birthday Salute - well, you're the very knees of the bee! THANK YOU BOTH!!! SABS
