T. Thomason

With over a decade of experience in the music industry, at 23 years old, T. Thomason is already a force in the Canadian musical landscape. T. has garnered multiple ECMA and Music Nova Scotia nominations, placements on Degrassi, songwriting awards and recognition as one of Canada’s Top 25 Under 25 by CBC Music. Thomason has also shared the stage with The Trews, Joel Plaskett, Gord Downie, Collective Soul, Fefe Dobson, Dragonette, and Carly Rae Jepsen, to name a few. Most recently, Thomason has been named Casino Nova Scotia’s Artist in Residence for 2018. In 2015 and early 2016, T. took personal time off to hone his musical direction and develop his EP, “sweet baby”, with producer Dave Henriques (Justin Nozuka / Iskwé). The EP was released independently online in 2016, and re-released in May, 2017 on COAX Records. A conglomerate of Thomason’s songwriting sensibilities and reverb-y indie rock anthemic choruses, “sweet baby” garnered him a 2017 nomination for Rock Recording of the Year at the Nova Scotia Music Awards. In November 2017, T. and Dave embarked on a new collaborative journey developing the pop/electronic sound of Thomason’s first full length record under his new name, featuring his new voice. Release is scheduled for early 2019, with the first single "Bliss" dropping August 10th at the Carleton in Halifax.
