Of Belgian, Egyptian and Lebanese heritage the 21-year-old musician has written and shaped an album of startling, visceral, sit-up-and-listen power. “Amir” features a handful of tracks from his debut EP, “Habibi” including Indigo Night which features Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood on bass guitar. Although the majority of the playing heard on “Amir” is Tamino himself, he is joined by a collective of Arabic musicians based in Brussels called “Nagham Zikrayat”. The Firka (orchestra) is predominantly made up of professional musicians from the Middle East, most of which have refugee status having predominantly fled from Iraq and Syria.
Over the course of “Amir”, Tamino captures a range of emotions from romance to desolation, and almost everything in between. It’s mood music, painted in a number of different shades.
Tamino: “Some of the songs on “Amir” are more on the romantic side, whilst others are more on the apathetic side. In my own life, I can look at the world and at life in both ways depending on my state of being. The conflict creates an imbalance. “Amir” is about balance”
Tracklisting: Habibi, Sun May Shine, Tummy, Chambers, So It Goes, Indigo Night, Cigar, Each Time, Verses, w.o.t.h., Intervals, Persephone
Tamino tours Europe throughout September November, including three nights at Ancienne Belgique in Brussels.

Toronto singer-songwriter STACEY is a romantic for the apocalypse generation. Her sophomore EP First Move allows a rare glimpse into the dark, solitary lucid daydreams of a Lynchian heroine. STACEY’s works have received glowing press from the likes of Refinery 29, NOW Magazine, Milk, and FLARE, while her soul-stirring, captivating live presence has led her to share stages with Charlotte Day Wilson, Cameron Avery (of Tame Impala). Her songs have soundtracked over 15 different TV programs including Lucifer, Orphan Black, and Degrassi, and since fall 2017, STACEY's First Move EP has amassed over 750K streams on Spotify. Surrounding the buzz of her sold out Toronto release show, STACEY played multiple Canadian national TV shows (Global Morning, CTV Your Morning), international showcases in New York & LA (It’s A School Night at the Bardot, The Peppermint Club), and two back-to-back sold out sets at Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum for the Christian Dior: 70th Anniversary Exhibit. STACEY currently splits her time between Toronto and Los Angeles and is working on her debut full length album.
