Canadian Coast To Coast is presented by The Eagle River Casino and Travel Plaza in Whitecourt.
My Special Guest is Tommy John Ehman.
Tommy John Ehman has the heart and soul of a songwriter, a desire and a passion to perform and a deep enthusiasm for music that has driven him over a long career that has produced 6 studio albums, 10 radio singles, airplay from coast to coast across Canada and placing on major Canadian radio charts.
He’s played everything from small clubs to large venues to festivals and opened for such greats as Michelle Wright, Doc Walker, Aaron Prichett and Valdy along the way. As well as headlining at the “Country at the Creek Festival” in Big River, SK, he’s had 2 memorable performances at the CNIB’s “iFactor” fundraisers at Lake Joe in Muskoka Ontario which were a true honor and a major highlight in his career thus far. 2018 brought Tommy 2 Saskatchewan Country Music Association Awards nominations for Album of the Year “Day Night” and Roots Artist of The Year and as well performing in the songwriters circle at the 2018 SCMA Awards weekend.
Influences like Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, Bruce Springsteen and Waylon & Willie have helped shape his unique songwriting and musical style. From deep stark acoustic gems to full-on, up-tempo country rockers TJE is always looking to write that next great song and keep his fans cheering for more.
His newest album (his 6th) titled “Day Night” is an 11 song “Acoustic” effort of some of TJE’s most in-perspective songwriting to date and captures his voice and performance like never before. Produced by Jesse Weiman, this record has been a hit with his loyal fans and no doubt brought many new ones to discover his vast musical talent.
Which bring us to “Say You Are” the brand new single release for Tommy and his new duet partner Amanda Hagel, who is also a “true-blue” Saskatchewan recording artist in her own right.
