Jim Payne Receives ECMA 2017 Stompin' Tom Award!

The board and staff of MusicNL would like to extend its sincere congratulations to Mr. Jim Payne for his receipt of the Stompin' Tom Award from the East Coast Music Association. 

Aside from being a leading performer, collector, and producer of Newfoundland traditional music, Jim Payne is also one of the province's most prolific songwriters. With a string of recording credits to his name, Payne also owns and operates his own record label - SingSongInc - which has released 27 titles, and produces special event programming featuring music, stories, and dance that reflect the Newfoundland experience. Over the last 30 years, he has also directed, composed, and performed music for theatre productions, plays, and documentaries

The Stompin Tom Award is named for Stompin' Tom Connors, one of the most well known Canadian musicians, was presented with the Dr. Helen Creighton Lifetime Achievement Award in 1993. At that time he agreed to accept the award on one condition - that he could return it! Instead, he requested that an award be created to honour all those who have made a long-term contribution to the East Coast Music Industry and have paved the road for many successful East Coast artists of today. The Stompin' Tom Award is presented to one individual or group from each of the East Coast Music Association's five regions (Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Mainland Nova Scotia, Newfoundland & Labrador, and Cape Breton).
