2015 Aurora Awards - Best Fan Music

As I love music of almost any style, I thought I'd check out the Fan Music nominations for the Aurora awards. Here are the nominated artists and my brief thoughts on their creations..

Brooke Abbey, Weirdness from 2014, Bandcamp

As her bio says Brooke Abbey (formerly Brooke Lunderville) is a banjo-playing pharmacist from Vancouver, BC. Traditional filk/folk style.

Some clever sfnal lyrics. She gets high marks alone for her quirky album cover.

Preview the songs here.

Devin Melanson & Leslie Hudson, Copy Red Leader, Crossing the Streams CD, The Pond Studio

Copy Red Leader is the geek rock duo of Leslie Hudson and Devin Melanson, based in the Toronto area. Together they flirt with the dark side of geek, playing everything from rock to blues, metal to bluegrass, funk to folk. Also nominated for Debs & Errol (Deborah Linden and Errol Elumir), OVFF Concert (Ohio Valley Filk Fest)

Perhaps the most musically accomplished and polished of the nominees with a diversity of musical styles, lyrics vary from the engaging to the silly. Something for every taste.

Preview the songs here.


Debs & Errol (Deborah Linden and Errol Elumir), OVFF Concert (Ohio Valley Filk Fest)

A geeky, comedy, music duo with a daily webcomic!

Was not recorded. However here is a sample of some of their music.


Kari Maaren, YouTube Channel


Kari Maaren is a Toronto musician who plays geeky ukulele songs about monsters and superheroes. She isn't sure why, but it amuses her, so that's all right.

Nice lyrics and tunes. Handles the ukulele with aplomb. Bit of a grab bag of songs.

Preview the songs here.


Stone Dragons, Dream of Flying CD, Stone Dragon Studios

Sue Posteraro met Tom Jeffers one night in a filk circle, and fell madly in love with him. Several years later she caught him. Shortly after that, Tom moved to Toronto and convinced her to form a filk duo. Now they help run FilKONtario and they are living happily ever after.

Pretty traditional filk. For me this wasn't a stand out from the other nominees
