In 2012, Todd Kerns, Brent Fitz and Cory Churko took time out of their busy schedules playing with Slash and Kelly Clarkson to band together and play a charity event in Winnipeg, Canada. They decided the theme of the night was to play only Canadian classic music. With a setlist comprised of tunes by such greats as, Streetheart, Queen City Kids, Kim Mitchell, Loverboy, Saga, Platinum Blonde, Harlequin and Aldo Nova they played to a packed house raising money for Cancer research. The night was such a success that they decided to put together a record to celebrate the best in Canadian Music and remake the songs that influenced and inspired their careers. Toque was born! Add into the mix Shane Gaalaas and you have a Canadian Supergroup with a pedigree like no other.
Fast forward to 2019, Toque has released their second album “Never Enough”, which not only features tributes to the great Canadian bands that the members grew up with, but also their first original song “Never Enough For You”. The video for the song can be seen here:
The video was directed by Dave Swiecicki, and was shot in an abandoned water pump station in Brent Fitz’ home town of Winnipeg.
