DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH: Teon Gibbs & Iamtheliving – “Puppa”

In this new entry in our ‘Diamonds In The Rough’ category, we want to introduce you to upcoming artists Teon Gibbs and Iamtheliving and their brand new single titled “Puppa”.

Quote from the artists: “We decided to join forces to create tracks that would make people want to dance – get lost in the groove (no pun intended!) – and bring people together. We feel that our music  is going to do exactly that.  As individual artists, our sound is much different from this track and it’s not typically what we’re known for. We’re fans of this sound and think it shows our versatility as artists,” says Rian. “There needs to be more cross-genre collaborations in Vancouver; more black voices uniting and creating music together. To be real. We just need more positive energy to get us through these crazy times!”

In February of 2016, during a trip to LA, Rian was fortunate enough to be introduced to Canadian, Grammy and Juno Award winning producer/Songwriter, Chin Injeti – and after his move to Canada in 2018 they soon began to break ground writing and creating music together.  Teon also found artistic success in Canada after his move to Vancouver from Botswana.  Together they are motivated and inspired by the lifestyle of the west coast.  Being surrounded by incredible nature and having the privilege to breath fresh air every day; seeing how the power of music can connect with people from all walks of life; and encouraging others to have a positive mindset and strive for overall well-being.
