Cordova Bay Records is very excited to congratulate David Gogo for his nomination at the 2014 Western Canadian Music Awards. The WCMA nominees were announced earlier today and Gogo's latest album, Come On Down, is up for Blues Recording of the Year.

The WCMAs consist of an interactive three-day music industry conference, a two-day multi-genre music festival and two awards shows - the Industry Awards, honouring people behind the scenes, and the Western Canadian Music Awards honouring the outstanding achievements of Western Canadian recording artists. The WCMAs are presented by the Western Canadian Music Alliance, made up of the Alberta Music Industry Association, SaskMusic, Manitoba Music, Music Yukon, and Music BC.
