Holly McNarland “Run Body Run” and NXNE Contest

Métis singer-songwriter Holly McNarland‘s new album Run Body Run, her first since 2007’s Chin Up Buttercup, is set for release in June. To celebrate, she is running a contest that there will be 11 winners for! Not bad odds – so get your entry in there!

To enter, submit a short 200 word (or less) essay or two minute YouTube video about one Holly McNarland song that impacted your life and why. Personally, Numb was a fixture in my high-school soundtrack, but that’s me!

The top 10 entries will be selected by Holly herself, posted on her blog and will each win a pair of moccasins from Manitobah Mukluks, hand-written (by Holly) lyrics of the song they entered the contest with and a signed/numbered copy of her new album.

One grand prize winner will really score with:

  • the 1st signed copy of the new album
  • transportation for winner and a friend to Toronto for NXNE Festival
  • a hotel in Toronto for 2 nights
  • 2 festival passes to NXNE
  • 2 pairs Mukluks from Manitobah Mukluks
  • meet and greet during soundcheck of Holly’s NXNE showcase at The Rivoli
  • pre-show dinner for 2 at The Rivoli Restaurant.
