Best Saskatchewan Albums: Public Voting Ends Friday

Best Sask Albums badge



It’s been another fantastic year for Saskatchewan music! From outstanding singles, EPs, and albums, to international concert stages, Saskatchewan artists are making their presence known at home and well beyond our borders. From the albums released in the past year, SaskMusic juries have assembled our Long List of 40 diverse albums and now we need the public's help to determine the BEST ones of 2019. We encourage music fans to listen to as many albums as possible before voting, of course.

The Top 10 Saskatchewan Albums of 2019 will be announced online the week of December 16.  
Only one vote per IP address will be recorded for the duration of the voting period. Voting closes at midnight, Friday, December 13, 2019 CST (extended)

This project is to promote and celebrate Saskatchewan music. We seek to raise more awareness of our province's music and celebrate our artists’ many successes over the past year. The top album as determined by this poll will receive the Saskatchewan Music Award for "Album of the Year."
