Having started off as a classically trained pianist obsessed with west-coast hip hop, Toronto-based POLUN (寶麟) sets himself apart with a sonic style rooted in versatility.
Watch the official “Takes Me Over” music video:
Under the producer/songwriter moniker Terence “TEE” Lam, he made his industry debut producing the 2014 JUNO Award-winning R&B/Soul Recording of the Year, Can’t Choose, by JRDN. Following that, he co-wrote two Billboard Hot 100 hits: triple-platinum singles “Here” by Alessia Cara and “Too Good” by Drake ft. Rihanna. Adept at jumping into any genre, TEE crossed over to produce for a few of K-pop’s biggest acts (EXO, Monsta X, D.O.) and wrote songs for major electronic artists (Adventure Club, DVBBS, Kaskade x Meghan Trainor). Most recently, his skilled production earned him credit on “U Should” by 2021 Best New Artist Grammy nominee CHIKA and “Living Hell” by global TikTok sensation Bella Poarch (leading single off the Dolls EP).
Now, POLUN is ready to give the world more with Trillium, his forthcoming debut EP inspired by his life’s journey. Creating an infectious sound that infuses unique pop melodies with emotionally charged beats, Trillium is an intimate soundscape featuring some of POLUN‘s favourite collaborators. The third single, “Takes Me Over” with Anthony Arthur, captures the inexplicable feelings of being spellbound to love. We are all prisoners to this energy and there’s no controlling it when it takes us over.
