T. Thomason’s latest EP sweet baby is set to be officially released through Rae Spoon’s Coax Records on May 12, 2017, preceded by the whip-smart first single, “My Kind.” Thomason will be showcasing at Canadian Music Week in Toronto on April 19 at Cherry Cola’s, with further shows confirmed for May with the band CAMERON [see full schedule below].
Overall, sweet baby is a declaration of independence for an artist you may have heard before, but never like this. Having made a bright and infectious pop-rock statement on the 2014 album Columbus Field, Thomason has graduated to a higher level of lyrical incisiveness and hard-hitting sonic experimentation on “sweet baby”. In basic terms, it’s about leaving teenage angst behind and fully embracing who you really are.
The Nova Scotia native recently made it to the Top 25 of the 2017 CBC Searchlight competition, adding to a list of achievements that include several East Coast Music Award nominations, as well as sharing stages with Joel Plaskett, Hey Ocean!, Collective Soul and The Trews.
Recorded at Toronto’s Coalition Music, sweet baby was produced, engineered and mixed by Dave Henriques, with a core group that included guitarist Stewart Cameron and drummer Blake Manning (both of The Heartbroken and the Matthew Good Band), keyboardist Jeremy Dutcher, bassist Kyle Teixeira, and special guest Kenny Boothby of Toronto’s Little Kid.
