“Five Minutes With” Singer and Songwriter Tyson Ray Borsboom

Canadian singer/songwriter Tyson Ray Borsboom creates intricate portraits of love and life in the modern world using little more than his trusted acoustic guitar for accompaniment. His inspired tales of loss and redemption make him a worthy successor to great northern poets like Leonard Cohen and Neil Young, and his charismatic live performances have put him on the brink of national prominence.

After spending several years honing his craft, Tyson teamed up with producer/engineer Kyle Prusky of Apex Audio to release his first EP ‘Sinner’ in 2018. Emphasizing his powerful vocal performances and stark arrangements, the seven track EP was praised by critics as “deep, dynamic, and full of emotion.” The following year saw him expanding into a full band sound as he recorded a full length album backed by some of the most accomplished players in Canada.

2020 will see the release of his debut, and introduce an international audience to the raw emotion and gritty charisma that has been steadily winning fans since his first performances. Tyson himself is more committed to his craft than ever, and is dedicated to growing as an artist and building a meaningful connection with fans and fellow musicians that will last for years to come.
