Teon Gibbs has demonstrated a hunger for innovation by offering a diverse range of sounds in his music. Pulling together R&B and Soul samples, Gospel chords, 808s, live instrumentation, and a strong understanding of harmony, Teon has been able to create just about anything from Trap Anthems to soul- searching Hip-Hop to R&B ballads, all the while maintaining honesty in his music. This authenticity is what has allowed him to build his brand and draw in an engaged following.
Bringing in teenagers and young adults, Teon creates a realm where his listeners can relate to his hunger for a better life, as well as appreciate his realness as a rarity amongst the inauthenticity from socialmedia in today’s world. The BC native looks poisedto continue this growth in 2019 by releasing two more full length projects and a constant stream of singles and music videos, all while planning a larger tour. Teon Gibbs has coined the term, “I might doit for the culture,” and is looking to do just that.
COTIS is a 20-year-old artist born and raised in Victoria, British Columbia. It’s a place that isn’t known for world class cultural exports, but with only three years of music-making experience, this young up-and-comer is already breaking the mould with his brand of melodic-driven music that sits between rap, pop, and R&B.
In 2017, a Swedish record label discovered COTIS and connected him with Stockholm producer Martin Wave, who together made what is now known to the world as his ‘WAIT’ EP. The project’s cutting-edge pop tracks have garnered him attention from the likes of Complex, Lyrical Lemonade, Elevator, Hillydilly + others. Now, the promising newcomer has joined forces with producer Andrew Luce for his second EP, ‘Patience’, and with it, he’s ready to put Western Canada on his back.
