Tuva Bergstrom is a Singer/Song Writer from Winnipeg, Canada. She has been writing songs and performing live since 2015. In April 2019, she released her second EP titled July.
Special thanks to the great team of professionals at the Just TV music program. The EP would not have been possible without their hard work, support, and dedication.
Looking back at 2019, Tuva has had some amazing opportunities with the Winnipeg Folk Festival Youth Performers Program and Manitoba Music. In December 2019 she released her single "Break-up Over the Holidays" and also had the opportunity to participate in a CBC project called POV (Point of View) where Tuva produced an audio piece on how the Winnipeg Music scene has influenced her as an artist (link below).
2020 has been a difficult year for many in the music industry but Tuva has been trying to stay focused on writing new songs and collaborating as much as possible. In August 2020, she worked on a song and video created by Ethan Lyric called "Get Me Back"(Video link below), and in October 2020 CBC Manitoba released "Graduation Day". A song and video Tuva created to express her feelings related to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Here is a link to the CBC Article and Music Video.
Tuva very much looks forward to getting back on stage one day but until then she continues to learn new skills related to music production and is planning out her steps within the ever-evolving music industry.
Watch for updates on Facebook and Instagram; there are many more exciting things to come for this young and talented musician.
In December 2019, my new single "Break-up Over the Holidays" was released. It has a heavier more mature sound; so much fun to be apart of. My second EP "July" was released in April 2019. You can find my Music on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play Music, Deezer, Youtube and SoundCloud. Special thanks to Jason Burnstick, Paul James, and the Crew at Just TV for helping me along the way and making my music dreams real!
Keep an eye out for any upcoming performances dates!
The video is a compilation of the parts of my life that keep my spirits up and remind me to be grateful for all of the amazing people I have in my life.
Graduation Day was one of the more upbeat songs I've ever written. I wrote the song about the current pandemic and how social distancing is changing the way society functions.
I wanted to write a song out of the point of view of all of the graduates who didn't get that special day to go to convocation and throw their caps in the air.
For high school students, and especially the graduates, all of these changes in the world may seem terrifying or stressful. I wanted the video for Graduation Day to feel familiar and normal to teenagers like me.
Tuva's second EP, July, will be released on April 1st 2019! Make sure to check it out on all music streaming platforms!
A ‘YOUNG PERFORMER’ TO KNOW ABOUT…
Tuva Making Winnipeg Folk Festival Debut
July 4, 2018 (Winnipeg MB) -- Teenage musician Tuva Bergstrom will make her Winnipeg Folk Festival debut this weekend as a featured performer in the Stingray Young Performer’s Program.
On Friday, July 6, a roster of emerging musicians from across Canada, ranging in age from 14 to 24, will perform on the Shady Grove stage. At only 15, Tuva will undoubtedly be one of the youngest up there. But you certainly wouldn’t guess that when you hear her music.
Her mature sound defies a youthful age. Her profound wisdom suggests an old soul. Her performance exudes a confidence found only in seasoned musicians.
A teenage phenom from Winnipeg, Tuva has been creating music through the Just TV program at Broadway Neighbourhood Centre since the age of 12. She’s already writing and arranging her own songs, laying down the instrumentation, producing demos, directing music videos, and styling the photo shoots. Which can only lead to the conclusion there’s no doubt she was born to be a star. And no question she is destined to become a musical force of epic proportions.
A FEW FUN FACTS
Tuva wrote and laid down the instrumentation and vocals in the song Personal, which debuted on CBC Radio on May 10. Have a listen on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/tuva-bergstrom/persona/s-FPi4B
She just took home 1st Place and $1000 from the Starbound Youth Talent Competition at the 2018 Red River Ex, for nailing an acoustic cover of Creep by Radiohead. Here’s a previous YouTube video of Tuva’s haunting version of Creep: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzNPYwm6sH8
She has a license to busk all summer long at Winnipeg’s most popular tourist destination, The Forks Market – and made well over a hundred bucks her first time out! This might be her new favourite job.
Released her first EP in January 2018 titled Ignore Me, I F***ing Dare You, and is currently working on music for her debut album (more details soon).
