With four Music Nova Scotia awards to her credit, Cape Breton's Carmen Townsend has served notice that she is definitely a blues/rock artist to be reckoned with. Ms. Townsend toured the country twice last year, once with Rock Legends Heart and then headlined her own tour in support of her highly acclaimed debut album "Waitin and Seein". Her 3 Piece band also blazed through Australia, Texas, the UK, and played oodles of festivals and shows in the Maritimes. At this year's Ottawa Bluesfest, Carmen Townsend's band was one of three finalist (from among over 300 submissions) in the band portion of the "She's the One" Emerging Artist Competition.
