TD Live Music believes that Calgary’s Connor James has something special going on. In fact, we think he’s downright awesome.

 The singer-songwriter has been crafting original tunes from the time he was a pre-teen. James has performed at Calgary coffee shops and other roots music events, all the while balancing his love of music with a demanding training schedule. He’s also a talented gymnast who has twice competed for Canada’s Junior Team.

 All of these interests came in to play when James, a longtime TD customer, stepped in to do some banking during a recent Customer Appreciation Day. As part of our #TDThanksYou efforts, and based on his branch manager’s knowledge of James’ passion for music, the promising young artist was thanked for his loyalty with a free session in a professional recording studio.

 The result? James recorded a new acoustic version of “#Awesome” (that’s “Hashtag Awesome” for those of you less versed in Twitter-speak), a song co-written with fellow Albertan artists Chard Morrison and Olivia Wik (Wik also performed at the TD music café in Edmonton this past June).


Have a listen to the playful “#Awesome,” and catch Connor James in action in this accompanying video.

 James hopes to build a career in music. TD is happy to support with a little nudge in that direction.
