Barenaked Ladies, Furtado top Junos

Canuck Grammys also fete Young, Arden as best artists

TORONTO — Nelly Furtado nabbed four kudos, while the Barenaked Ladies looked buffed with three statuettes at Sunday’s Juno Awards, Canada’s equivalent of the Grammys.

Furtado took the new solo artist award, as well as nods for single (“I’m Like a Bird”), songwriter (“Turn Off the Light”) and producer, with Gerald Eaton and Brian West of the Philosopher Kings.

Life south of the border hasn’t hurt the Barenaked Ladies’ popularity, as the band took the award for the top group, while its latest disc, “Maroon,” scooped pop album and best album kudos.

Neil Young won male artist, and Jann Arden took female artist nods. Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” received the award for vocal jazz album, and the Tragically Hip’s “Music @ Work” took rock album.

Shania Twain was passed over for country female artist in favor of Terri Clark.

Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP” was the bestselling album, foreign or domestic.

Bruce Cockburn was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The Junos, presented by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, were announced at a ceremony hosted by comedian Rick Mercer in Hamilton, Ontario, Sunday night.
