Tom Saunders plays the Tall Troubadour, one of the duo which appears in the episodes with a song that gives an offbeat take on the week's story. Saunders wrote his first song at age 11, an ode to his guinea pig, which failed to chart. A singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he joined his first band at 17 and won the Vancouver Battle of the Bands, as lead vocalist and co-writer of the band Chemistry. He has since written and recorded music and lyrics for various TV, theatre and corporate uses. Saunders began collaborating with Robson Arms co-troubadour Jason Dedrick in 1991 and together the two have written music for many plays, comedy reviews, television programs and personal amusements.
