Soulful Sunday With Supreme Canadian Voice THEO TAAMS

23 April 2023

THEO TAMS is a Toronto-based singer-songwriter.

He just shared his cathartic cover of Phil Collins‘s 1981 hit
In The Air Tonight (more than 570 million streams on Spotify).

TAMS: “For me, the personal attachment to this lyric runs deep. I recently ended a friendship with a really narcissistic individual and I had a really hard couple months where I was feeling really off and down about it all. I started listening to this track so differently, and I wanted my version to centre around the feeling of when you know something is off, but you find yourself making excuses for someone else’s red flags.”

This Canadian songsmith will overwhelm your ears with his majestic voice, the hero of this cover. The gripping, almost stripped to the bone, performance is heart-and-soul touching. Now and then the emotional resonance flares up but always returns to its bone-chilling core and its subtle piano play. Beautiful.

Canadian singer-songwriter THEO TAMS expresses his love for his bride-to-be
with a stripped to the bone cover of one of The Beatles‘ early mega hits I WANNA

TAMS: “I decided to take an approach to this song which focuses on the lead vocal, creating a feeling of recognition and nostalgia but also a bit of mystery. I sang this version of the song with a certain type of coyness which lends itself to the lyrics’ intimacy. I am not a fan of sappy lyrics at all, but this one just sits with me. Sometimes something so simple can seem profound. I love that they didn’t try to overcomplicate the song lyrically, it’s just a sweet love letter.’

TUTV: Tams‘ stylish and tender version of this Fab Four classic is wholly wonderful. A yearning wedding hymn for his lover and a soon-to-be first dance heartbreaker on many wedding floors. Countless artists covered The Beatles, few succeeded, but this is a winner, as well vocally as musically. A heart-and-soul touching gem to embrace. Goosebumps beauty in slow-motion.
