Founder of critically acclaimed, Juno Award nominated punk band Single Mothers has announced the release of his forthcoming solo project The Drew Thomson Foundation. Along with the announcement, "Stay", the lead single and title track from the debut EP is now available via BrooklynVegan and Youtube/Spotify.
In Thomson’s words, ""Stay" is a plea - it’s a simple word that can unlock an incredible amount of vulnerability in the person asking it. Unfortunately by the time we have to ask someone to stay, we usually already know the answer. This song is about trying to change the inevitable, too little too late - and having to deal with it." "Stay" is a survey of Drew as a solo artist - the songs being a culmination of his experiences focused heavily on family, love, death, excess, and longing."
The Drew Thomson Foundation’s EP "Stay" will be available on May 4, 2018 via Dine Alone Records. In the meantime, the title track is available now to stream and share via Soundcloud found HERE. Check out the list of tour dates below.
