Calgary-based musician Terez has had an explosive start to 2021. Fresh off her latest single release titled Hot Mess, which is a track that has amassed over 84,000 streams on Spotify and 16,000 views on the music video since its release. After having a busy 2020, performing with Canadian star Ria Mae, the 24-year-old queer, Métis, and up-and-coming electro-pop/rock singer-songwriter was scheduled to perform with RALPH just as the pandemic hit. The singer spent the past few months at home writing and recording and is now gearing up to release her brand new single, This City on May 7th, 2021. To help with the promotion of this single’s release, Terez will also be releasing a music video for This City at the end of May.
Over the past 10 years working at her craft, Terez shared a stage with Keith Urban, and has navigated the music industry with numerous aspects of her work remaining behind the scenes, Terez has developed a vast amount of industry-related knowledge and gained a realistic view of the industry and practical skills that can take most artists decades. Thanks to 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 who has written a musical repertoire consisting of 500+ original songs, Terez has a creative eye that is rarely seen in the music industry today, becoming one of the most sought-after Canadian songwriters and creative directors who runs her own company, plays her own instruments, writes her own songs, and recently was top of her class in music production. She is one to watch as Terez has a rapidly growing following online; it’s only a matter of time before Terez is racing her way up the charts to number one!
Her songs discuss topics such as self-love, mental health, and acceptance. Her new music complements the classic Terez sound while showing her growth, and will be sure to delight her current, and soon-to-be fans alike! Between Calgary, Nashville, and Toronto, Terez has become a household name in the music community and is routinely commissioned to support other artists and their creative endeavors. With an early 2000’s pop sound that blends the stylings of Ariana Grande with Avril Lavigne, Terez has amassed over 400,000 streams on her recently released music with a fanbase of over 130,000 which has led to press coverage in notable outlets like Ear Milk, PopDust, and The Wire MEGAzine, performance opportunities, and attention from record labels.
This City is a pop ballad that brings all the nostalgic feelings of a lost romance. The song was inspired by the singer moving to Toronto and finding herself lonely and reminiscing on an old flame. Terez turned these memories into a heartbreak anthem to help listeners through heartbreak or at the very least “scream-sing” in their cars or the shower. “This City came out of one of my first song camps in Toronto. I moved there and realized I only really knew one or two people in the city, which made the first month there very lonely. While writing this song during the song camp, I realized that there were other lonely hearts in the room and we all related to the song in a different way. The writing session ended up with the other writers and I jumping on the couches with excitement that we made a song that spoke to each of us so much, and that’s when This City was born.” ~ Terez
Aside from her pink hair, these skills differentiate Terez from other artists in this 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. Terez has a relentless work ethic and a ‘won’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.
After finding massive success on her first 5 singles over the past year, Terez is currently in the process of recording the first full-length project of her career, releasing her debut EP, Sad Girl Summer, due to drop in the Summer of 2021 and will consist of 7 original songs, with This City being the second single from the project.
