A high school student at the time when cell phones with cameras and the internet were becoming increasingly popular, Terez belonged to the generation at the forefront of bullying on social media, and was unfortunately one of the many victims of it. With deeply emotional lyrics sung to an incredibly upbeat, bubbly Pop melody, Terez’s “luv2h8” tackles internet bullying, the bullies themselves, and their targets.
Terez has developed a deep understanding of the music industry through the many hats she has worn as a songwriter for other artists, a marketing consultant, a social media expert, all in addition to her experience as an artist in her own right. These experiences have allowed Terez to develop a realistic view of the industry and practical skills that many artists have yet to cultivate. Aside from her pink hair, these skills differentiate Terez from other artists in th is industry because she has experience doing each of the tasks that her team now carries out, which allows her to work more efficiently, understand where her money is best used, and generate meaningful marketing campaigns and strategies.
Her music releases have amassed over 400,000 streams within the last year alone, which have led to press coverage in notable outlets like Ear Milk and PopDust, performance opportunities such as opening for Ria Mae and RALPH, and attention from record labels, With every single release, there has been massive growth within Terez’s career and an abundance of opportunities.
Terez has a relentless work ethic and a ‘can’t quit’ attitude. Her ability to blend genres, mixing pop, R&B and punk rock, is what gives her music that uniquely intoxicating sound that listeners can’t help but sing along and dance to. Her mix of raw emotional lyrics, and catchy upbeat melodies, leaves her fans feeling a rare connection and bond to her and her music; offering an escape from reality and the chance to become fully immersed in the world, and vividly real experiences of Terez.
With influences from Mean Girls and her own experiences with bullying, the video for “luv2h8” was produced and directed by the renowned Glean Productions, with a full cast and crew. With the intent on shining a light on the emotions and impact associated with bullying, the talented artist who ranks among the 2.1% of female producers in the industry today leaves a bold statement about bullying in her soon to be released video.
On the heels of her second appearance (July 2022) on Canada’s #1 entertainment show, eTalk, to chat about being a completely independent female artist and producer, Canadian musician, vocalist, producer, and creative director, Terez, is gearing up to release her second EP later this year. Her self-produced, powerful Pop music covers a wide-range of social issues that she carefully crafts as a vehicle to tell stories often untold, and has been recognized across the country for her incredible creativity. The Alberta based artist has been featured on eTalk, across the CTV News network, and on radio stations throughout the country. She is a proudly Mètis, openly LGBTQ+ artist who ranks among the 2.1% of female producers in the industry today. Terez writes, records, and produces music for herself and other artists. With her expert crafts-woman-ship, Terez’s music and visuals have had a massive impact on her Canadian audience by writing songs that are not only relatable, but offer listeners another perspective on a multitude of subjects.
Armed with her trademark confidence and charm, Terez’s latest single “luv2h8” boldly tackles the subject of bullying in the form of a catchy and upbeat pop song. Written from her first-hand experience as the victim of a bully, “luv2h8” alludes to a specific instance in high school during which a humiliating video of the young artist was filmed and circulated online. Inspired to speak out about the relentless and impersonal hate that many people face each day, Terez sought to transform her painful and isolating experience into an empowering anthem. Like its predecessor “Ugh Boy”, “luv2h8” was entirely recorded and produced by Terez herself, further establishing the artist as one of the rare female creatives in the music industry with full artistic control. A perfectionist who isn’t afraid to experiment in the studio, Terez reconstructed the track from scratch multiple times until she was fully satisfied with the sound. Incorporating the vocal samples of a mob chanting in the background, Terez profoundly manages to recreate the feeling of being alone in a crowd. Expertly textured with a variety of instruments and complementary backing vocals, the relatable tune sends a powerful message to listeners in a similar situation that they are not alone, and that sometimes, people just love to hate.
