“"Pensive, meditative, and ultimately uplifting, Loeks delves into various aspects of the human experience with the purpose of developing a greater understanding of ourselves, each other, and the world. His authenticity is refreshing and encourages listeners to move beyond the natural tendency to be cynical, negative, and apathetic into gratitude and joy."”
Thorin Loeks is a singer-songwriter from the Yukon Territory, Canada. Over the last five years Thor has bicycled and canoed over 15000 km across North America with a guitar on his back. These have been foundational experiences for his songwriting and musical style which manifested over months of simple, nomadic journeys enriched by the countryside, towns, and many diverse, warmhearted people whom he encountered, connected with, and befriended along the way.
His music style and songs can be described as soulful contemporary indie-folk/rock, influenced and inspired by his thirst for exploring/learning about the world and the potential of the human spirit. Thor uses his voice, overtone singing, guitar, piano, harmonica, kick drum, foot tambourine and when possible a band of contributing musicians, to share meaningful thoughts, reflections, and stories relating from personal to societal experiences.
Thor released his debut album Thirsty Hearts in early May 2016, his sophomore album Shine Through The Dark in late May of 2017, and two singles, Open Sky and Game Plan, in 2018 which will be included on his upcoming third album, "In This Place" which he plans to release sometime in the spring of 2019.
In early 2016, he completed an associate of arts degree in global stewardship from Capilano University in North Vancouver and is now in the midst of finishing a bachelors in communications while working for an emergency aid society that helps the homeless.
