Our current golden age of television isn’t just a boon for the small-screen industry and viewers at home.
It’s also improving the prospects for musicians who find their songs on a hit show.
“When my music was featured on Orphan Black in 2013, my phone and social media blew up,” says folk-pop singer Tim Moxam, BFA (integrative music) 09. “The worldwide feedback I got was a real confidence booster.”
The hit Canadian TV show is about a character juggling multiple identities. How fitting, seeing as Moxam is a carpentry instructor as well as a musician. His day jobs at Toronto’s George Brown College and Humber College don’t seem to slow him down. Moxam’s songs are regularly featured on CBC Drive and CBC Shift, and he won the 2019 International Song Competition - Best Music Video for “Honesty.”
