As creative thinkers who have to solve problems for our clients we encounter challenges everyday on how to continue to make a living with our vision. We have to get the competition mindset out of our way and come together to share our experiences and wisdom with each other. We are in the Creative/Creator Renaissance where we are needed more than any other time. The way the world approaches work has changed and content is required at light speed. By sharing my knowledge and insights I want to spark discussions on how we can do this better because we are all In This Together

    Toque Mini-Series - Episode 4 - Todd Kerns

    TOQUE /TO͞OK/

    noun


    A close-fitting knitted or crocheted cap having no brim for warmth.
    A  rock band consisting of 4 Canadian musicians destined to celebrate the best in Canadian music.

    In 2012, a few musicians took time out of their busy schedules playing with Slash and Kelly Clarkson to band together and play a charity event in Winnipeg, Canada. The theme of the night was to play only classic Canadian music. With a setlist comprised of tunes by such greats as, Streetheart, Queen City Kids, Kim Mitchell, Loverboy, Saga, Platinum Blonde, Harlequin and Aldo Nova they played to a packed house raising money for Cancer research.

    The night was such a success that they decided to put together a record to celebrate the best in Canadian Music and remake the songs that influenced and inspired their careers. 

    Toque is:


    Todd Kerns - Lead vocals and guitar
    Brent Fitz - Bass guitar and vocals
    Cory Churko - Guitar and vocals
    Shane Gaalaas - Drums and vocals

    They are releasing album 2 “Never Enough” on August 28th, and the single, their first original “Never Enough For You” is available now. Digital Downloads can be Pre-Ordered at toquerocks.ca, or you can pick up a copy of their first release Give’r on iTunes.

    Upcoming Shows.

    August 27th – Listening Party – Nashville’s Event Centre – Winnipeg 

    August 29th – Meet n Greet – John’s Music Store – Moosejaw SK

    August 30th – Meet n Greet B Sharp Music Store – Regina, SK

    August 31st – Shake The Lake – Regina, SK 

    September 1st – Party In The Park – Calgary, AB 

    I had the opportunity to sit with each member of Toque and talk about their careers for my upcoming documentary “Under Covers” about the 80’s cover band scene in the Canadian Prairies. These conversations were so rich that I asked Todd Kerns if it would be ok to release them in conjunction with the new album to give fans more intimate knowledge on where these guys came from and how that has influenced their careers.
