|Definitely one of the most popular female artists we’ve ever presented, Cheryl Lescom has been part of the Canadian music scene for over 35 years. Starting off in 1975 with several of her own bands before becoming a backup singer for Ronnie Hawkins and touring with Long John Baldry. She has toured and performed with the likes of Jeff Healey, Matt Minglewood, Dutch Mason, the Downchild Blues Band, Jack DeKeyser, Del Shannon, David Wilcox, Mel Brown, Paul James, Billy Durst and The Detroit Women.
The Tucson Choir Boys were formed in 2004 as a side project by two members of Loco Zydeco, one of Canada’s premier Zydeco bands. Featuring Dave the Cat (lead acoustic guitar & lead vocals) and Sameday Ray (acoustic guitar & vocals,) they have since been wowing audiences across Ontario with their fiery brand of acoustic Rockabilly, Roots and the Blues.
In 2008, TCB joined forces with label mate and Canadian Blues Legend, Cheryl Lescom. Together, in 2009 they released Cheryl Lescom & the Tucson Choir Boys – a mix of acoustic Blues, Roots & Pop – to critical acclaim and in 2015 followed up with 1953 which is already receiving rave reviews.
