tiny bill cody
tiny bill cody is the performance alter ego of Tor Lukasik-Foss, a Canadian artist whose creative practice has integrated music, performance, storytelling and visual art. He has therefore existed in a variety of places, with a spectrum of collaborators, and in varied configurations for over two decades, in solo shows, fringe musicals, country music reviews and performance art operas. Throughout it all, he has written songs. They begin usually with voice and a percussive guitar; they tell about the human experience as it succumbs to an inevitable procession of minor sins, private ambitions, subtle fears, fragile humiliations, and tiny levities. They graft themselves onto the roots of sturdier rhythms and traditions in order to be more widely understood. They don’t know where they belong.
