Toronto, ON – Four Chords and The Truth, a quarterly series of “in the semi-round” sessions with world class songwriters, returns with a sold-out show at its brand new home on the fourth floor of the Allied Music Centre in the incredible TD Music Hall in Toronto.
After 6 wonderful years, 21 unforgettable shows, and over 100+ award-winning songwriters at the Dakota Tavern, the acclaimed series will commence a new run at the Allied Music Centre’s TD Music Hall with the Four Chords and The Truth: The Fourth Floor Confessions.
The sold-out show will take place on May 25thfrom 7pm-9pm EST (doors 6pm) and will be hosted by Nova Scotia-born, Toronto-based singer-songwriter, songwriter advocate, series founder and curator, Andrea England.
The evening is one of intimacy, quality, and exclusivity, with each songwriter “confessing” their song secrets. This show’s lineup will include performances from incredible award-winning Canadian songwriters such as CCMA and CMA Ontario Award-winning Robyn Ottolini, ECMA “Song of the Year” Award-winner Adam Baldwin, JUNO Award-nominated and Canadian Folk Music Award-winning Julian Taylor, and chart-topping singer-songwriter Liz Rodrigues, along with some surprise guests, to the perpetual delight of the passionate Four Chords and the Truth fan community (“FCATTERS”), many of whom have been attending from the beginning.
The series is also introducing the TikTok Seat, in which a songwriter breaking on TikTok’s entertainment platform is invited by England to join the round for one song.
“I started this series in 2015 after being inspired by the in the round sessions I experienced on Canada’s East Coast and in Nashville. As a singer-songwriter myself, I wanted to establish a series of my own in Toronto with a greater range of musical genres,” said Andrea England, founder and creator of Four Chords and The Truth.“Since then, over 100 of Canada’s top and emerging songwriters have played the series and I am beyond thrilled to continue to build this community and support my fellow songwriters.”
Since February 2018, all shows of the Four Chords and The Truth series have sold out in advance or at the door. Due to the sell-out success and demand for the previous dates, and this May 25th date, more shows are being planned for later this year and into 2024.
