“Five Minutes With” The Tea Party Percussionist Jeff Burrows

Canadian rock band The Tea Party recently released their new single Summertime on May 14 via Coalition Music/ Warner Music, available on all streaming platforms. “Summertime” is a heavy-hitting summer jam accompanied by Jeff Martins’ incredible vocals and electrifying guitar work.

“Friends… you’ve been cooped up for way too long. You’ve all done the hard yards and have done the right thing with regards to keeping yourself and others safe,” said Jeff Martin. “With absolute respect and humility, The Tea Party offers up this song with the hope that it might become an anthem for an appropriate celebration.”
