„After three albums released between the ages of 14-19, I took a year away from music. I began testosterone hormone therapy and relearned my singing voice, changing my name and pronouns along the way.
My newest single, “Birdsong,” is a look at the journey behind T. Thomason, my first full-length record as T. Thomason (appropriately self-titled), that drops on September 25th. These songs were written and recorded over the past four years – the most intense period of change and growth in my life.“
The video was shot on an early August weekend with some of my favourite people in this industry. We had a blast – it really felt more like summer camp than a working weekend. I think Britt Farhat and Kat Kwan captured the journey of this song to a T (no pun intended…okay, maybe a little).
If I could tell the version of myself who wrote this song that this is where we would end up, I don’t think I would have believed me. That’s the point. Here we are, despite fear and hatred and misinformation.
That’s what “Birdsong” is about.“
