Theo Tams Shares His Most Personal Work To Date, ‘Quit U Love’

When THEO TAMS wrote single ‘Quit U Love’, he was at the height of his alcohol addiction.

He said about his experience: “Drinking constantly, I reached a moment of clarity where I started to see my addiction for what it was – an abusive relationship that I just didn’t know how to leave.

The next morning, I woke up early, packed my laptop and microphone, then walked to a lookout point on a hill where you can see for miles. I chose to record the demo at this spot – a place where I could see into the distance – because so many areas of my life felt like they had come to a standstill.

‘Quit U Love’ is taken from Theo’s EP, ‘Trilogy II’, a collection of songs that are each unapologetically him.

Song of the Day: Begging For The Tide – Lucas DiPasquale

‘Begging For The Tide’ holds a special place in LUCAS DIPASQUALE‘s heart as he produced the soothing R&B/pop joint entirely on his own. The single documents the comparison of a girl that Lucas once liked to a warm wave of ocean water.

Lucas explains further the meaning behind the single: “My dad would take my brothers and me to the beach in the evening when the waves would be really big and we would get decked trying to boogie board into them. The bigger the waves, the better. That experience inspired the entire song – I liked this girl so much that I felt like I was sitting on a beach begging for a wave to come and envelop me. I wanted to see her so bad that I found myself asking the universe to make it happen.

‘Begging For The Tide’ marks a new chapter in Lucas’ music career since parting ways with a major label. Check out the single below…

Listen To Amir Brandon’s Debut Single, ‘Champagne’

Extraordinary vox and melodic sensibilities combine for Ottawa-born, Toronto-based pop singer/songwriter AMIR BRANDON and his debut single, ‘champagne’.

Serving as a preview to the Toronto-based artist and multi-instrumentalist’s forthcoming debut album, ‘Lonely Club’, ‘champagne’ achingly peels away Amir’s desire to ditch the bubbly in favour of dancing alone with his broken, pained heart. His authenticity as a melancholic man of sadness comes to life on the track, giving us a one-way ticket into uncharted loneliness.

On “champagne,” Amir takes creative licence, carving his own unique place in the rhythm and blues world. Dripping with charisma and eloquence from every note, his falsetto pierces the heart, while breathless runs solidify his dedication to drawing in the listener and holding them captive.

Having gained early accolades from chart-topping Billboard singer/songwriter JoJo, Amir Brandon has performed headlining showcases at Canadian Music Week, shared the stage with Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo, and amassed more than 2+ Million streams on YouTube for his stunning takes of R&B greats.

Heard across CBC, Netflix’s Cobra Kai, Disney’s PJ Masks, The Young & The Restless, Spotify’s New Music Friday, and more, he has also headlined the “We’re Funny That Way” LGTBQ Festival, Youth Day at Yonge & Dundas Square — as well as being featured as a singer/songwriter at the Toronto Pan Am/Parapan Am Games, and performer, songwriter, and co-producer for ‘Rapid-Eye Movement’ at Nuit Blanche and Summerworks Festival.

Enduring years of closed doors, homophobia, and fighting for artistic integrity only fuelled Amir Brandon’s creative fire, inspiring a striking sense of vulnerability and confidence in his songwriting. After much experimentation, self-discovery, and reinvention, his music stands as a testament to his resilience in the industry.

“champagne” is available now. Lonely Club is available Summer 2021. Check out the music for the single below…
