SLATED FOR SUMMER CANADIAN "LEAVE IT BEHIND" TOUR FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL 16 DATE RUN IN AUSTRALIA
Toronto, ON - July 19, 2017 - Following a successful Australian tour this past May, Roaring Girl Records labelmates Tim Moxam and Liz Stringer are joining forces again to celebrate the release of their new co-written duet Leave It Behind with an upcoming Eastern Canadian tour. Toronto based singer-songwriter Tim's first time in Australia saw him embark on a 16 date tour with Melbourne artist Liz Stringer, taking in diverse locations across the east and west coasts of the country, such as Western Australia's breathtaking Kimberley region, which included a songwriting workshop with indigenous youth in Ardyaloon. The many hours on the road and a song concept that Moxam brought over from Canada lead to the creation of a brand new single - Leave It Behind - set for a digital release on August 4th via Roaring Girl Records. Have a listen to the stunning new duet here, primarily recorded in Toronto at Dream Date studio with Joshua Van Tassel, with Stringer's vocals recorded in Melbourne. Full tour details can be found below.

What's The Story about Tim Moxam?
Moxam recruited a who's who in Toronto's music scene for his 2016 album Soft Summer: former bandmates, Adrian Cook (guitar) and Tony McKnight (bass) of Great Bloomers, Joshua Van Tassel (drums) of Great Lake Swimmers, and Lemon Bucket Orkestra's Christopher Weatherstone (saxophone.) The songstresses Ivy Mairi (The Weather Station, Bruce Peninsula) and Raffa Weyman (RALPH and formerly Queen of the Fleet) provided accompanying vocals on several tracks. The album was recorded, mixed and produced by Chris Stringer, who has worked with Timber Timbre, Ohbijou, The Wooden Sky and Gentlemen Reg, among countless others. In 2016 Tim shared the stage with The Strumbellas, Donovan Woods, Coeur de Pirate, to name a few. His single Harvest For The Queen was #63 on CBC Radio 2's Top 100 Songs of 2016 and #76 on CBCMusic's Essential Songs of 2016.
