Slowcoaster + T. Thomason + Cameron

  • May 12, 2017
    10:00 pm - 2:00 am

Now here’s a fantastic night of music for you… Cape Breton’s Slowcoaster, along with Toronto’s T. Thomason and locals Cameron provide a super triple-bill at The Carleton on Friday, May 12th. Show time is 10 PM and admission is $15 at the door.

When it comes to a great night out, it’s pretty hard to beat one of the best, road-tested, bands from our part of the world in the country – Slowcoaster. You’ll want to sing along, dance and, probably, drink – which, as a club, is a good thing for us! Get there early because the opening acts are great and these guys usually sell the place out!

T. Thomason’s latest EP sweet baby is a declaration of independence for an artist you may have heard before, but never like this. After putting out sweet baby independently in 2016, the EP will get a formal release through Rae Spoon’s Coax Records on May 12, 2017.

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’s list of past achievements includes several East Coast Music Award nominations, as well as sharing stages with Joel Plaskett, Hey Ocean!, Collective Soul and The Trews. Now, T. Thomason has begun a new chapter, one that’s challenging the image of Canadian rock as well. The five songs on sweet baby grew out of a period of self-discovery that found Thomason feeling around in the dark, getting caught between rocks and hard places, and making friends there.

Recorded at Toronto’s Coalition Music, sweet baby was produced, engineered and mixed by Dave Henriques, with a core group that included guitarist Stuart 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.

Ever since Nova Scotia’s T. Thomason put out his debut album… the singer-songwriter has continued to develop an important voice in Canadian music. – CBC Music

Cameron is sisters Barbara and Victoria Cameron, a pop/rock duo – formerly two thirds of the all girl band Pink Thunder –  so these sisters are no strangers to East Coast stages. After taking some time off to rediscover themselves, graduate university, and transition into young adulthood, the sisters are now ready to take a second stab at the music biz with a more mature approach and an edgier sound. With undeniably catchy originals layered with thick guitars and infectious harmonies, Cameron hopes to capture the attention of fans both young and old.
