February Update

Thank you for visiting our new website! We hope you find everything you're looking for :)

We have started this year with a bang! A few weeks ago, we released our second YouTube video; a cover of Bob Dylan's, "Don't Think Twice It's Alright". Check it out here: 
Our most exciting news is that we are nominees for this years ECMA's! We are up for Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the year and are so pumped to visit Newfoundland for the first time this spring to attend! While there, we will be playing showcases at the Breakout Stage as well as the Folk Stage...we hope to see you!
Our calendar is starting to fill up for the year and it's comforting in this cold to know that summer festival season is right around the corner...until then, we'll be bopping around the Maritimes and hope to see lots of you soon! Check out our tour dates here:

Much love!
John & Lisa

Happy 2015 everyone and welcome to our brand new website!!

Happy 2015 everyone and welcome to our brand new website!! This is our official spot where you can look around and find any and everything Tomato/Tomato related…We hope you find it to be a nice place to hang out online – if we could give you virtual tea/coffee while you browse, surely we would!

We had an amazing 2014 that included – becoming regional champions for CBC’s Searchlight competition, opening for Ron Hynes, our sold out CD release weekend, showcasing at MNB week, Galaxie Rising Star, countless summer festivals, and live collaborations with the legendary Ray Legere - thank you to everyone who helped make our year so great!

One of the highlights of the last month was the response to our live video for “Toss It All Away”. It’s received over 4000 views since we released it in December, and is still being shared daily by friends and fans. We’ll have more news on the video front later this month; please subscribe to our YouTube channel for all of the latest updates!

UPCOMING SHOWS! Sunday, Jan. 18th, at Taymouth Community Centre 7pm Jan. 23rd AND 24th, In The Dead Of Winter Festival, Halifax NS

We’ll have CDs and t-shirts available at all of our upcoming shows. If you can’t make it out, and still want some merch, you can contact us directly here or at, or you can purchase our album digitally through iTunes or Bandcamp.
