T. Thomason is a Canadian trail blazing pop artist, who has impressed fans with his emotional and highly energetic live performances at festivals like The Great Escape, POP Montreal, Pride Toronto, Reeperbahn, and more.
T. was a winner on CTV’s The Launch, which landed his single “Hope” on top 40 radio, and Spotify Editorial playlists like New Music Friday.
T.’s 2019 self-titled album was described by 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.
In 2020 T. released his “Part II Project”, a series of reimagined versions of singles from his album, featuring Rose Cousins (King of Spades Part II), Ria Mae (Loser Part II), Ivan Coyote (Birdsong Part II), and Sarah McLachlan (Bliss Part II) each lent their unique talents to the project. The singles have garnered praise from Tom Power on CBC’s Q, American Songwriter Magazine, and CTV’s eTalk.
Summer of 2021 saw T. release his version of Bruce Cockburn’s classic “Lovers in a Dangerous Time”, claiming it as a queer anthem for new generations to come.
T. is currently working on a new record to be released in 2023.
