About BreakOut West

BreakOut West is where the music industry gathers to celebrate, develop and support the best of western Canadian music. Western Canadian artists are developing sustainable careers of national and international scope. The Western Canadian Music Awards are viewed on a national basis as an integral component, not just of a western Canadian artist’s development but perhaps more importantly, of the Canadian music industry as a whole.
