Saturday night added another exciting chapter.

Paper Lions took home six PEI Music Awards including songwriter of the year, album of the year, entertainer of the year, group recording of the year, pop recording of the year and video of the year.

This was the headline in the Island’s paper this morning:  The Lion’s Share.
