Over the years, I’ve had an outside interest in following the progress of singer/songwriter Theo Tams. It began with the annual Yuletide duets with vocalist Ali Slaight, and then the occasional Tams side. Most recently, during the pandemic years, Tams began revealing much about himself in each release. Therapy –– Jekyll Hyde Love – Quit U Love and most recently One Last Chance – the message and theme behind the Bell Let’s Talk documentary about mental health produced with Workman Arts, a multidisciplinary arts organization that promotes greater understanding of mental health and addiction issues through creation and presentation.
“We support artists living with mental health and addiction issues through peer-to-peer arts education, public presentations, and partnerships with the broader arts community.”
Stream Theo Tams: One Last Chance on Hot Docs streamed through to January 26.
Bell Let's Talk Day is on January 26, where five cents was to be donated to mental health charities for every applicable text, call or social media post that uses the hashtag #BellLetsTalk.
