Someday Junos Featuring Tessah Dunn, Ashirogi Muto, Jessie T
$10 Advance / $15 Door *
From the creative programming committee at Hugh’s Room Live comes a new musical series to shine the spotlight on young singer / songwriters in the GTA. Someday Junos will celebrate the best songwriting we hear from the streets of The Big Smoke. This ongoing series will launch Summer 2019 and extend far into the future as we hope to give emerging artists a stage on which to share their music.
If we invite you to participate in the series, we think there might be a prestigious award in your future. For the listening community, this is the best chance to catch the early work of these incredible musicians before their careers take them outside the city and beyond. This week features:
1. Tessah Dunn
Tessah is a multifaceted artist with varied strata of musical experience. As a classically trained singer, self-taught guitarist and keyboardist, and song-writer, she has performed internationally in both classical and popular styles. With an early start on the piano at 5, she began both learning and improvising music. At 11, she picked up a guitar and started writing, recording, and performing both independently and in various pop and jazz bands. Her performing experience now spans from Classical Recitals, to beach-side parties, wedding ceremonies, conferences, private events, album releases, shows, and fundraisers. Her most recent performances include private events with Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, and KNAR. When playing in Toronto, she’s debuted her original music at venues such as the Royal Ontario Museum’s Friday Night Live, The Drake, and the Smiling Buddha.
When it comes to writing content, Tessah’s inspiration comes from a curiosity and fascination with behaviour, vernacular, and irony… as well as an appetite for getting to the point. She has always seen writing as an analytical art, which is what led her to her present studies in Psychology. Her lyrics are purposed to discover, define, and create meaning, along with all the emotion that comes with it. Whether its the enjoying the brilliant nuances of connection, or creating an amusing exhibit of an awful experience, the focus of her artistry is getting to the heart of the matter in a matter of seconds, no holds barred. Having been influenced by artists like Peter Gabriel, Ben Gibbard, Matt Corby, Allen Stone, and Justin Vernon, her musical style is an amalgamation of folk, pop, and soul. From The Eglinton Grand to Chelster Hall, Tessah’s performing style and repertoire is suited to both broad and intimate audiences. Her 5-track original EP “No Better Place” (released September 2011) has been played in over 50 countries. Her newest single, “Don’t Sorry,” (released February 2018) has been played in over 15, and is available on all online platforms (https://song.link/i/1352225077).

2. Jessie T
Jessie T is a triple threat: singer, songwriter and guitarist whose talent is undeniable. Teamed with award-winning Canadian producer J.Richard Hutt, her debut FACTOR funded album ‘Reckless Heart’ was released September 2016. Jessie has won many vocal/songwriting awards, most notably 1st in the KICX 106.7FM songwriting competition in 2012. Playing over 200 gigs annually, she’s graced stages with artist such as Western Swing Authority & John Landry. She was also asked to perform Kitchener’s Canada Day festival in 2017 alongside River Town Saints & James Barker Band.
Captivating vocals, rhythmic guitar, unique songwriting and a relentless work ethic; Jessie T is an artist you will certain want to keep an eye out for!
Ashirogi Muto is an anime-inspired, underground rap duo comprised of MC’s Masta Shōnen and MC Ichiban. Not all is as usual, though, because both rappers are actually one person! Jorel Hoffert often spent time by himself watching tv and movies, and playing video games. Now, through hard-hitting beats and nerdy lyrics, he proves to everybody that just because you’re by yourself doesn’t mean you have to be alone.
