About the Artists:
"Rooky is a Talented emerging Afrocentric Singer, Songwriter & Record Producer who expresses his emotions through rhythmic Melodies and passionate lyricism. His style of infusing Afro elements with Rhythm and blues, Hip hop and soul gives his musical expression a unique blend of melodies. He describes his sound as a “musical fruit basket”. Rooky usually performs with a unique band called “The Bad Hvbits".
He has also scored multiple nominations at the prestigious Saskatchewan Music awards. Asides being in the studio, Rooky aids in various community building projects with a focus on the appreciation and promotion of musical Artistry and entertainment culture in Saskatchewan and Canada alike.
"Beyond all the subjugation of music into genres and sonic forms that often do not capture the essence of its existence, there are, perhaps, two important frameworks for understanding music at its most elemental: there is music that belongs to the people by being, with the artist merely a conveyor of the message; and there’s music that is a natural product of inner monologues and therapeutic sessions by creators that triggers intense feelings from which the audience extracts their separate meanings upon listening. TOVA’s music is in the latter camp.
Since making his debut in 2020, TOVA has quickly gone on to establish himself as a prominent force in Canadian R&B music. After headlining the final day of the 2021 Regina Folk Fest, TOVA went on to have a remarkable 2022. He bagged a Western Canada Music Award nomination for R&B Artist of the year, was crowned Contemporary Artist of the year for the 2022 Saskatchewan Music Awards and played the prestigious BreakOutWest festival.
