When brothers Christian and Jagori Tanna met Edwin back in 1990, the latter thought it would be a good idea to put a band together, and now, 30 odd years later (including an 8-year hiatus), I Mother Earth continues to rock stages as a stalwart on the Canadian rock scene. On July 13th, they will be gracing the stage at Del Crary Park once again, not too far from where the Tanna brothers went to high school.

When I Mother Earth ended their eight-year hiatus in March of 2012, they did so by putting a countdown clock on their website that expired just in time for the band to perform two sold-out shows at Toronto’s Sound Academy. In 2016, they turned the clock back—20 years back to be exact—and reunited with the band’s original vocalist, Edwin, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the critically acclaimed multi-platinum album Scenery and Fish. From there, the reunion tour commenced and was a tremendous success, including shows with Our Lady Peace. It was so enjoyable that the band decided to formally reunite with Edwin indefinitely and also headed back into the studio to create new material. In 2016, I Mother Earth’s tour included a stop in Peterborough to play at Musicfest.

Scenery and Fish spawned 4 Top 10 Hits in Canada with “Raspberry,” “Another Sunday,” “Used to be Alright,” and “One More Astronaut,” but it’s the new music on the horizon and the opportunity to dive into their first record, “Dig,” that has both the fans and the band excited to explore. The debut record featured 4 top singles:

“Levitate,” “Rain Will Fall,” “So Gently We Go,” and “Not Quite Sonic,” all of which hold a distinct place in the hearts of IME fans.

“We are really looking forward to this exciting journey to revisit our entire IME history with Edwin,” says Christian Tanna, co-founder, and drummer. “The fact that we are writing and jamming with this vibe is a huge rush. We really can’t wait to share this with our fans!”
