TEA Volume 12 & 13 compilation artist Bob Rylett takes songwriting to new heights. His songs are honest, truthful, genuine and hopeful. As a storyteller he is prolific and dangerous, surprisingly honest and insatiably curious about life. He sings of lust filled angels and repenting devils. He sings of peace with a knife and the cowardly bully. He sings of revenge against teachers and preachers and chance. He sings of lust and life and loss and luck. He sings of the love of truth and the lies of hate. He sings about you and about me.
Root Cellar Records comment on Bob’s recording…”Things turned out much the same when I took him into the studio. The intention was simply to run a few takes of songs, so we could see what we liked and figure out what to do with it. But he got right down to work just as soon as engineer Rick Salt finished setting him up in a booth. No messin’ and no stopping. No repeats and no second tries. Just one song after another. That’s what he does. That’s how he works. That’s what we captured.” Listen to Bob’s songs here.
Bob is living his dream writing, recording and performing on the road. Check out Bob Rylett on A Channel News.

TEA Volume 14 artist Matthew Breakey (aka elevator boy) has been an avid artist who draws and paints how he experiences the world around him. Whether its creating works that express his darkest feelings, or showcasing his sometimes out of touch, extravagant sense of humor.
Matthew has attended OCAD for 2 years, and his most intimate, expressive works, have been when he’s been free from school establishments and given time to come up with his “own” way to make his mark on any given material. Matthews works go from using unconventional materials to his first love of pen on paper.

The Beacher Cafe, 2162 Queen Street East, Toronto, Ont.
Open 8:30 am to 11 pm / 7 days a week
Reservations not available between 9:30 am and 3:30 pm Weekends
The Art will be up for the month of September
TEA has been on myspace for many years and we would like to rename our myspace website to TEAspace due to the recent collapse of myspace. The sole purpose of the TEAspace website is to feature our top 10 picks from each TEA Volume compilation CD. The choices are very hard for the TEA Staff to make since we are very close to all music on our compilations. Each TEA Staffer will pick two of their favorite artists from each compilation. Currrently, the top 10 picks for TEA Volume 15 are now posted and they are…
- Sarah Troy
- Bain Anderson
- Trevor Davies
- 49 Parallels
- Dana-Marie Battaglia
- Morris 8
- Kim Esty
- Marshall Potts
- Neil Chapman
