Thom chosen to represent New Brunswick in CBC Radio 2’s GREAT CANADIAN SONG QUEST

Launched on Sept. 7, 13 musicians – one from each province and territory in Canada – have been selected by CBC to add a new chapter to the Canadian songbook through the creation of 13 new original road songs.

Proudly representing New Brunswick, Thom will write a song featuring an inspiring stretch of road that music fans will vote on. Log on to the Song Quest website to vote.

Once the nominations are in, a short list of the top five roads in each province and territory will be revealed on September 22, and folks can vote for their favourites. On October 1, the final roads will be revealed on the Song Quest website and the musicians will get to work writing new tunes. Those new road songs will be unveiled on CBC Radio 1, 2 and 3 on October 22, and will be available for purchase on iTunes. And on October 26, all 13 artists will come together in a special Song Quest concert at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto.
