“It's funny how it goes- a few weeks ago I posted a quick video for my 'mostly-instrumental' tune called 'mermaids'. I received a letter from my 'ol friend, fellow Cape Bretoner, Ashley MacIsaac. Ashley asked me if I'd be into recording the song with him for his new album due out later this spring. Needless to say I'm thrilled and excited to record mermaids with Ashley and can't wait to hear what he comes up with for the fiddle melodies... We have a studio booked for this coming Friday here in the city but before that we'll get a chance to catch up this Thursday night ( Feb. 24th) here in Toronto. !!!”

“One of the most loved songwriters to have emerged from the burgeoning local indie rock scene of the 1990′s, Tom Fidgen has released his first recorded collection of music since 2002′s independent release Beyond Before. Recorded in Toronto and featuring a who’s who of that city’s finest studio musicians, a boy called fish is an atmospheric take on Fidgen’s rootsy storytelling style. The album sees Fidgen reunited with longtime collaborator, friend and former bandmate, Juno-award winner and in demand studio guitarist, Stuart Cameron.”

“Tom Fidgen took the last six years off from his music career to play “Mr. Mom” to his two children, but he was back on stage Monday night. Fidgen just recorded his latest solo effort, A Boy Called Fish, and he played two CD release shows at Halifax’s Carleton Music Bar to celebrate. ”

“Submitted by mike_campbell on Wed, 01/05/2011 - 22:56. Description:  Back in the MuchEast days I heard a very cool album that was produced by my friend David Rashed. The band was Sunfish and they hailed from Cape Breton.Sunfish was a bona fide indie rock band and an awfully good one at that. The band was three piece and it was fronted by a guy named Tom Fidgen. That album, Mola Mola, still ranks as one of my favourite Atlantic Canadian albums of all time. I often wondered what had ever become of Tom? I'd hear rumours but hadn't heard from him in years. I got an email from him in the fall telling me he was up to something and then, a couple of weeks ago, he sent me the stuff he'd been recording to listen to. Blew me away!”
