Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
Hi readers, I’m Joey Tyler! I like to play guitar, drink coffee and write indie-pop songs. I graduated from the University of Toronto classical music program and moved my way into the Canadian pop music scene. My journey started out as part of the pop duo Farewell Summer and after 3 years of releasing music and touring across Canada, I decided to release some music of my own!
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I am proud to say that all of my music is written and recorded in my apartment in Toronto. I learned to record and produce music over the span of ten years starting out with a rock band mic and audacity. My focus always gravitates around the songwriting, I try to create a concept that is meaningful to myself while also making something that is catchy and “earwormy”. My production style is definitely pop/electronic heavy, with a hint of acoustic elements.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I just finished a tour this past September – November that brought me across Canada to the edge of Nova Scotia down through the States and back, playing venues, music festivals, and University frosh week shows. The tour was called “The Past No Return Tour” to promote my newest release “Past No Return”
My live show is very exciting, the energy is a contrast between soft, technical acoustic elements and a big electronic sound that you would experience in an arena show! I try and be as authentic as possible and connect with each person in the crowd.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
My favourite song of mine that I would suggest is “Mess This Up”. It’s a pop electronic song that features pop-singer Jacqui Verellen. I think this song is the closest to what I am aiming to create as an artist, and I am really proud of what Jacqui and I came up with.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
I have a couple of Canadian artists that I listen to on a regular basis. Virginia to Vegas, Bulow, Valley, BRDGS and Neon Dreams.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
