Tim Chaisson Announces Tour Dates in Support of New LD ‘The Other Side’, to be Released September 25, 2012 Via Bumstead
East coast singer-songwriter Tim Chaisson is set to release his fifth studio album nationally on September 25, 2012 via Bumstead (The Trews, Two Hours Traffic Poor Young Things) and is also pleased to announce Canadian tour dates including stops in Toronto, Montreal, Halifax, and Charlottetown in support of the new release.
Recorded at Woodshed Studio under the guidance of producer Colin Linden (Bruce Cockburn, Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, Lucinda Williams), The Other Side blends Maritime roots and folk music with a lush yet minimal arrangement. As with previous releases, Chaisson's golden-toned voice and signature guitar are at the forefront, embracing a warm transparency that fans and critics have come to love. New tracks including the standout "Beat This Heart" featuring songstress Serena Ryder are bound to become favourites, along with "Bail You Out" which Chaisson recorded for Southern Souls along with "Blast Your Way Out" earlier this summer.
It's no surprise coming from a musically influenced family that Chaisson set his sights on solo artistry at a young age. With the 2009 release of Broken Hearted Beat, Tim Chaisson's fourth studio album, the multi-instrument became a force on the national music scene garnering attention including a #1 spot on the MuchMoreMusic Countdown, "Touring Artist of the Year" by Music PEI, and solo tours of Australia. With recent festival dates under his belt including Hamilton's Festival of Friends and the inaugural Boots and Hearts Music Festival, Tim Chaisson has already been treating audiences to new material, hinting at what The Other Side promises. Between the new release and national tour dates, it's evident that Tim Chaisson is an artist to watch in 2012. Download link and tour dates below.
