Thomas Duxbury is an independent artist based in Hamilton, Ontario, known for his unique blend of blues and indie rock sounds. With a signature style that incorporates surf-inspired melodies, 1950s-inspired ballads, and rock and roll riffs, Duxbury has created a sound that is both familiar and fresh.
Fronting a band called New Mother Nature, Duxbury has brought together a group of talented musicians and artists, including Bruce Cole, Chuck Kostash, Jesse Stratton, and Bryan Mostert. Their performances are known for their energy and excitement, and they have earned recognition by opening for big names in the industry, such as The Dirty Nil, Keith Mosfet, and Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs.
Aside from his music career, Duxbury has also organized and hosted numerous fundraisers, including one for Habitat for Humanity.
In 2020, Duxbury released his debut LP, "Back 40 Homegrown," which features four singles, including “Monday Blues,” “That Woman,” “This City,” and “Burn On.” He recently recorded two additional singles, "Ain't No Life" and "Solid Ground," challenging himself to write and record with vintage analog equipment.
Duxbury's influences include Modest Mouse, Neil Young, The Black Keys, and Tom Petty, and his unique genre-blending has seen him perform at notable events such as the RGU End of Year University Celebration in Aberdeen, United Kingdom, the Dundas Cactus Festival, the Squamish, BC International Film Festival, and the Mohawk College Frost Week 2020, where he opened for The Dirty Nil and Sam Coffey and the Iron Lungs.
His music has gained radio play from 101.5 The Hawk, 93.3 CFMU, CBC Radio 2, and several other radio stations around Canada and the UK. Duxbury is planning on releasing two new singles over the summer, mixed by Michael Keire and mastered by Noah Mintz, which promise to build upon his already impressive discography.
