“Tallies have a jangly sound that at times recalls The Smiths, The Sundays and other ’80s alt bands, but singer Sarah Cogan’s smoky vocals pull things into other territory” – BROOKLYN VEGAN
“While they’re still in their relative infancy, you might want to get out and see them live, so you can say “I saw them when…” – THE 405
TALLIES navigate an unfamiliar world on their confident self-titled debut album, which blends elements of shoegaze, dream pop, and surf rock into a fresh sound that’s all their own. The band was founded by singer and rhythm guitarist Sarah Cogan and lead guitarist Dylan Frankland, a couple who met in a sound engineering class. The band have toured all over the USA, Europe and Canada. Tallies spent 2020 writing and recording their second album and can’t wait to be out playing live music again.
City Hall Live Spotlight
In partnership with Unison Benevolent Fund, City Hall Live Spotlight is a weekly livestreamed concert series featuring professionally produced livestreamed videos of Toronto musicians performing at shuttered music venues around the city, along with a handful of other music-related businesses (recording studios, rehearsal spaces, etc,). The goal is to help "spotlight" not just local artists but venues and other parts of the live music ecosystem that have been catastrophically affected by the pandemic while raising much-needed money for the Unison Benevolent Fund. The series will run from January-May 2021.
Spotlight builds on this spring's City Hall Live Online series, which provided paid performance opportunities for 120 local artists via online streaming (mostly from the artists' own homes) between April – July.
City Hall Live Spotlight is a part of the City's ShowLoveTO initiative, launched in association with Founding Sponsor American Express and in partnership with Destination Toronto, to help Toronto businesses, neighbourhoods and residents safely recover and rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic.
All donations and proceeds raised from sales of the Spotlight merchandise will be donated to
