(September 21, 2018 – Toronto, ON) – Dine Alone Records is excited to announce the signing of Taggart & Torrens to its award-winning roster. The dynamic duo features Jeremy Taggart, legendary Canadian rock drummer and multiple-JUNO Award winner formerly of the band Our Lady Peace, and Jonathan Torrens, a 30-year veteran of Canadian TV (Street Cents, Jonovision, Trailer Park Boys, and Mr. D).
The Taggart & Torrens podcast has amassed almost 4M downloads and picked up the 2018 Canadian Comedy Award for Best Audio Program. TnT is a weekly cocktail of tales from the road and goofy party games. It’s also a celebration of “Canadianity” – a word Jonathan and Jeremy coined to sum up the nostalgic affection they have for growing up in this country. They will be taking their popular show on the road this Fall, as well as hosting the mainstage at the 10th Edition of Beau’s Oktoberfest. See below for dates and for more information, visit: http://www.taggartntorrens.ca/tour/
The TnT podcast recently spawned a best-selling book published by Harper Collins titled Canadianity: Tales From the True North Strong and Freezing. Every chapter of the book shines the spotlight on a different province or territory and includes hot insider tips on where to eat, drink and explore any given place. The audio version of Canadianity is available on Audible.ca and from retailers at this link: http://www.taggartntorrens.ca/canadianity/.
“We’ve always wanted to make a record that blends Jer’s musical background with Jonathan’s comedic chops. We’d been hoping to find just the right creative partner and couldn’t be more excited to have a table for two at Dine Alone.” – Taggart & Torrens
