bio

Calgary indie ensemble Thomas Thomas is the result of the creative collision of the sincere singer-songwriter Shannon Thomas and the curious indie-rocker Thomas Englund (Bell Tower, Beta Boys). Combining their names and adding a sparkly rock ensemble, the band makes swooning and nostalgic songs worthy of the swankiest high school prom.

Known for their hand-crafted aesthetic, heavily decorated live shows, and love of the colour yellow, Thomas Thomas has landed a YYC Music Award nomination and a first place win at the Ship & Anchor songwriting contest. Their tunes have seen chart positions on CJSW, CKUA, spins on X92.9, and a dedicated local following. The band has performed with Japanese Breakfast, Shannon & The Clams, and Monowhales, and has graced the stages of Canadian Music Week, Sled Island, and BIG Winter Classic. Their dreamy indie idiosyncrasy on their debut self-titled EP (2019) has drawn comparisons to Born Ruffians, Wallows, and Camera Obscura.

Their most recent single, the nostalgic ‘Right Place Wrong Time,’ was recently featured on a 2023 Starbucks summer ad campaign.
