Tommy Green Jr

Tommy Green Jr is a singer-songwriter and comedian from Halifax, Nova Scotia who uses loop pedals and effects (like Ed Sheeran) to built huge acoustic soundscapes. His live shows are a whirlwind of sing-alongs, hilarious stories and audience interaction. 

He performs elevated versions of songs from his self-titled album nominated in 2016 for “Pop Album Of The Year” and “New Artist Recording” at Nova Scotia Music Week. “Sand In My Sheets” is full of sultry hooks and warm summer chords that transport you straight to the beach, while “I Blame Toronto” (Bob Mersereau’s favourite title of 2015) is a heart-wrenching story of the loss of young love. 

 His soulful voice, seasoned banter, and the way he involves the audience to bring everyone together and create a feeling of unity and charm will make you a life long fan.
