T. Thomason - T. Thomason is a pop artist living between Halifax and Toronto. T. has impressed fans with his emotional and highly energetic live performances throughout his 11 year music career at festivals like The Great Escape, FOCUS Wales, Parliament Hill’s Canada Day, POP Montreal, Halifax Pop Explosion, Pride Toronto, Canadian Music Week, Milwaukee Summerfest, and more.
The lead up to the release of T.’s self-titled album in September 2019 was a roller coaster. He was a winner on season 2 of CTV’s The Launch, which landed his launched single “Hope” on top 40 radio, Spotify Editorial playlists like New Music Friday Canada, and put T. on stage at the Bell Centre with Quebec’s reigning pop queen and his mentor, Marie-Mai.
T.’s recent album was described by Halifax’s The Coast as “equal parts scar tissue and sparkles”. Deeply vulnerable and honest, it is a must-hear for anyone who’s wondered who they are and what’s to come.
young friend - Known as young friend by people who don’t know him as Drew Tarves, the Vancouver-based musician is old school by preference and new school by circumstance. While navigating modern production and bedroom-pop methods for creating his tracks, he still keeps a distance from the digital world in ways he can - through pen and paper, vintage sweaters, candlelight, and a taste for classic pre-internet romance. He is a heartthrob that emerges from the hybridity of the present and the not-so-distant past.
