Free To Stream: New Theo Tams Doc

By Karen Bliss

The premiere of Theo Tams: One Last Chance will stream for free on the Hot Docs website this evening (Jan. 20), in advance of Bell Let’s Talk Day, the communication giant’s campaign to raise funds and awareness about mental health. The 40-minute documentary will be followed by a panel discussion.


In the film, co-directed by Michael Landsberg and his son Corey, the singer/songwriter, who won the final season of Canadian Idol back in 2008 and has released several albums, including last year's Trilogy 1, discusses his own journey with mental health.

The trailer is a clip of Tams talking about feeling "terrified that the bombshell of me being gay was going to come out," after he inadvertently used the "he" pronoun live on national television when talking about a relationship.

The Beaches Bring "Blame Brett" to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

The Toronto quartet brought their viral single into their late night TV debut.

Following the viral success of "Blame Brett" in 2023, The Beaches have made their late night TV debut, performing their naming-and-blaming single on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Though the Toronto band has been together for a decade, winning a 2018 Juno for Breakthrough Artist following their debut album, last yearmarked a watershed moment for the quartet. They traded their heavier rock sound for sleek new wave guitar tones and took back control of their career, deciding to release their new album, Blame My Ex, independently. (They co-wrote the album with Canadian artist and songwriter Lowell, who also has a credit on Beyoncé's newest hit.)
