FORUM Gala Evening; Celebrating the CPBI 2017 Hall of Fame 

The FORUM 2017 Gala evening will take place at the Delta Hotel in Winnipeg following a full day of sesssions. 

Come celebrate with your fellow delegates the 2017 inductees into the CPBI Hall of Fame during a Gala evening featuring a special performance by Winnipeg`s own JP Hoe. 

JP Hoe

JP Hoe is a singer-songwriter who connects with fans of all music genres. Soaring melodies, sharp lyrics, and his rhythm driven songs create a unique yet idly familiar sound.

The Winnipeg native is earnest, wry, ironic, funny and insightful. His material has a genuine homespun feel, filled with catchy hooks; it is very authentic, uncontrived and confessional. He’s played gigs all over the world, connecting with audiences via his soul-on-sleeve lyrics, but also his down-to-earth unpretentious charm.

The six-time, Western Canadian Music Award nominated artist, has a tremendous gift for writing songs. His big, bold, blue-sky voice is captivating and compliments his creative and emotional lyrics. In his album, Mannequin, the singer-songwriter has crafted the kind of compilation that, to borrow a Wilco lyric, tries to break your heart. It is a soaring collection of cinematic epics that can still fascinate you and tend to burn with an intimate intensity.
