Sisters Lauren Budnick and Brooke DeLeary of the faith-forward pop duo LOVECOLLIDE released their third full-length album, Tired Of Basic (4/13/18) on ABS Entertainment, LLC with global distribution through The Fuel Music. Garnering a GMA Canada Covenant Award nomination, widespread critical acclaim and significant radio airplay throughout Canada and beyond since the album’s release, LOVECOLLIDE is now honored by The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) with a 2019 Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year JUNO Award nomination.
Canada’s biggest night in music will be held in London, ON, hosted by Sarah McLachlan, and broadcast live across the country on CBC, CBC Radio One, CBC Music, the free CBC Gem streaming service and globally from www.cbcmusic.ca/junos at 8 pm ET on Sunday, March 17, 2019.
“We are blown away and humbled!” says Lauren and Brooke on Facebook following their JUNO nomination. “We can't thank all the radio stations, and their listeners enough for all the love and support! To all the fans who stream, download and listen - thanks! It is only because of, for, and through, Jesus!”
Being heard on radio throughout Canada, something that’s particularly meaningful for the girls as tribal members of the Chippewas of the Thames First Nation in Muncey, Ontario, LOVECOLLIDE has released two singles from Tired Of Basic. Their first single and video, “I Don’t Want It,” spent nearly eight months on the Canadian Christian Radio Chart (CCRC) Top 30 while their Top 10 hit “Undeniable” continues for its 12th consecutive week on the chart.
LOVECOLLIDE’s Tired Of Basic, produced by Riley Friesen (Family Force 5, Group 1 Crew) and Matt Dally (Superchick, Jamie Grace), is meant to be a revolution against boredom, mediocrity and status quo living.
CCM Magazine calls the album “infectious pop music” as JesusFreakHideout.com gives the album 4.5 stars and says Tired of Basic is“an urgent sonic punch.” Lauded by NewReleaseToday.com, CrossRhythms.co.uk, Breathecast.com, Today's Christian Entertainment and more, the album is available now at all major digital and streaming music providers internationally through https://lovecollide.lnk.to/tiredofbasicIN, as well as at Target, Christianbook.com and others.
“We want our music to be an experience, not just something to listen to,” shares Lauren. “We want the vibe, the style we give people and the love they receive to be something they remember, something that changes them.”
