If you haven’t been to a RAW event yet, you should go and check one out. They combine different forms of expression into a fun night of artistic stimulation at venues across North America.
They are constantly showcasing talented musical acts such as TooTall from Toronto, CA.
Tony Coke: Welcome TooTall. Are you originally from Toronto? How long have you making music?
TooTall: I grew up in the small town of Grimsby, Ontario. After high school I wanted a job in media. Decided to Move to Toronto at the age of 18 to go to Film school. I‘ve been performing and involved in the music scene stating high school from filming local shows, acting in theatre, and working as an extra in movies.
Music is the reason I wake up everyday. I couldn’t imagine my life without it. When I started rapping to beats everyday, I knew I wanted to start my career in music.
Tony Coke: What musical projects do you have going on at the moment?
TooTall: I’m currently working with a few different producers and mixed-genre artists to create my digital EP: “High-Aid-Us”, coming out this summer.
The EP wouldn’t be the same with out the support of videographer, and former “LED” DJ partner, Craig Wood @cameronwoodly.
Tony Coke: What’s interesting about this project?
TooTall: Why High-Aid-Us?
I was in DJ group a few years back called “LED” (Lights.Electro.Dubstep) – we performed and organized events, big and small, all over the city for a few years.
We decided to take a hiatus for a while to focus on new solo directions. That small break gave me time to create the monster: “TooTall”.
Tony Coke: Cool, what are your goals for TooTall?
TooTall: Currently my musical career goals are to work with as many talented artists as I can, learn from them, and make some great tunes together.
I just want to share music and good vibes. Dreaming of a world tour with a group of positive, like-minded individuals to keep the feeling alive…
Tony Coke: What’s up next for TooTall?
TooTall: You can see me perform, at the RAW Toronto Signature Event March 17th at Maison Mercer – tickets are now available @ TooTallToronto.com & RAWartists.org
