Single Mothers was started by poet and ex-gold prospector Drew Thomson in London Ontario Canada around 2008. The band has had a constant revolving door of members and even Thomson has been out of the band at times. At one point, when Thomson was in the Canadian North gold prospecting, there were 2 iterations of Single Mothers going at the same time with totally different members.
The band has released 3 albums and a number of EP’s all with different members, but critically acclaimed for Thomson’s lyrical wit and bite. ‘Negative Qualities’ and ‘Through A Wall’ were both nominated for prestigious Juno Awards in their home of Canada.
Single Mothers have played all over North America, the UK and Europe with bands like The Bronx, Drug Church, Quicksand, Touche Amore, Title Fight, PUP, Enter Shakari and many many more.
Single Mothers are hitting 20222 running with 2 albums on the way through Dine Alone Records and a number of other plans.
