Tristan Thompson - Man of your Dreams(New Single Release)






Tristan Thompson, a 18-year-old Victoria, BC, native, convinced his family at a very young age that he was born to be a performer. Music and dance consumed his life as if nothing else mattered. Drawn to acts such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Michael Jackson, he sang his lungs out to their tunes as a toddler or could be found playing drums on anything he could find. He took this fascination even to the point of becoming a Michael Jackson impersonator busking in downtown Victoria where the local police would have to move his spectating crowd off the street.
After a live performance at a family friend’s wedding and a few performances at various local charity events such as “The Autism Walk” and the “Lac-Megantic” fundraiser, Tristan was featured on the local “ Go Island” TV show where he was interviewed by James Green.
Soon after, Tristan released a YouTube video for his Swedish House Mafia cover “Don’t You Worry Child” and thousands of views started pouring in. The video caught the attention of Chatter Records and a productive relationship began.
Tristan’s debut album, “Here For You”, was released in April 2014 and the first Single, “Tidal Wave”, took radio by storm. Over 100 radio stations played the Single in Canada in addition to international airplay in New Zealand, Scotland and the Philippines. It currently has over 57K views on YouTube.
The summer of 2014 was a busy one for Tristan. His performances included charitable event “Animals for Life Society”, 8 shows at “The Victoria International Buskers Festival”, charitable event “Walk for the Children” at the Toronto Zoo, “The Brentwood Bay Festival”, “The Saanich Fair” and 107.3 Kool FM’s “ kool Days of Summer” private wrap party. Tristan also appeared on Toronto’s “Breakfast Television” on CityTV as well as Corus Entertainment’s “The Zone” on YTV. As well, Tristan began touring with TeenFest Canada in British Columbia. In November 2014, he was named Bell Media’s “Future Star”. Despite his active performance schedule, Tristan still managed to find time to film multiple music videos and record a Holiday single that reached #29 on the BDS Mainstream AC chart in Canada.
Tristan’s second Canadian Single, “Burn Again”, reached #24 on the Mediabase Pop Adult chart & #30 on the BDS Mainstream AC chart in Canada. To date, the video has received over 1.6 million views on YouTube. This Single was also released in the US in February 2015 and received airplay in over 10 States peaking at #73 on the Mediabase Top 40 chart. As well, the video received airplay on MTV.
Tristan’s sophomore album, “Love You Can Believe In”, was released on May 2nd!  This much-anticipated project contains 12 new songs that were specifically written with Tristan’s audience in mind.  These hook-laden tracks are sure to please all of Tristan’s loyal fans.
It’s not hard to imagine that Tristan’s future in music will be successful considering his natural talent and unwavering commitment to honing his craft.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
