A four-time JUNO Award performer and eleven-time JUNO Award winner, Bublé's 
trademark style has taken the world by storm since he first burst onto the 
music scene. Born in Burnaby, B.C., Bublé had dreamt of being a musician 
since he was just two-years-old. His self-titled, debut album, released in 
2003, featured classic standards, including "Fever" and "The Way You Look 
Tonight". The album launched Bublé into the limelight, seeing him win New 
Artist of the Year at the 2004 JUNO Awards. Bublé's second studio album, It's 
Time, released the following year, again included classic standards, and as 
well included the original track "Home" which hit the top of the pop radio 
charts. The album won four JUNO Awards and, that same year, Bublé received 
his first two GRAMMY(®) Award nominations. With the success of his third and 
fourth albums, Call Me Irresponsible and Crazy Love, he continued his meteoric 
rise to international acclaim, with appearances on OPRAH, THE X FACTOR, and 
SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, as well as taking part in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic 
Winter Games torch relay in Vancouver before the opening ceremony.
