Calgary’s Mariel Buckley takes homes the 2019 Project Wild Development Program grand price!

It was a night of high-energy performances and memorable celebrations on Saturday at Knoxville’s Tavern in Calgary, as Alberta Music and WILD 953 announced the Top 3 Award recipients at Project WILD’s season finale event. Following a week-long boot camp, a series of showcase performances, charity challenges and public voting, the Top 3 Award recipients are as follows:
  • 1st Place ($100,953) – Mariel Buckley (Calgary, AB)
  • 2nd Place ($75,000) – Mariya Stokes (Stavely, AB)
  • 3rd Place ($50,000) – Blake Reid Band (Carstairs, AB)

After performing one last time on Knoxville’s stage as part of the program, each artist was presented with their award cheques – a career changing prize for each Top 3 finalist. Created in hopes of fostering the Alberta music industry and creating a sense of community among artists and industry professionals, Project WILD has played a role in launching the careers of many local artists including previous Top 3 finalists The Dungarees, Brad Saunders, The Prairie States, Sykamore, Nice Horse, Ryan Langois, Ken Stead, Tanya Ryan and Leaving Thomas.
