With the street date of Tim Chaisson’s new album quickly approaching, the young east coast singer-songwriter is pleased to announce an extensive cross-Canada tour this fall. Tim Chaisson will be joined by Toronto rockers Poor Young Things for six weeks of touring with dates coast-to-coast including Halifax, Toronto, Edmonton, Vancouver and more. Tickets go on sale this coming Thursday, September 20. Chaisson’s fifth studio album, The Other Side, will be released on September 25 via Bumstead (The Trews, Poor Young Things, Two Hours Traffic). 

With Colin Linden (Bruce Cockburn, Blackie & the Rodeor Kings, Lucinda Williams) at the production helm, The Other Side marks Tim Chaisson’s strongest release to date blending his signature golden vocals and guitar with a Maritime charm. “Beat This Heart” has been selected as the album’s first single/video and features acclaimed songstress Serena Ryder, while “Bail You Out” and title track ”The Other Side” follow close behind as standout tracks. The musical transparency of the album transcends to live performances, with fans already catching a glimpse at what the new album beholds this summer at the inaugural Boots and Hearts Music Festival, and a performance at this year’s Canada’s Walk of Fame celebration coming up within the month.

Having grown up in a music-centric family in the small town of Souris, PEI, Chaisson quickly discovered not only a passion, but also a knack for music, and into his teens became a talented multi-instrumentalist. This quickly became a full-time endeavour with 2009’s Broken Hearted Beat marking his fourth solo release and earning Chaisson awards and accolades including COCA Emerging Artist of the Year and the prestigious honour of being chosen as Musical Director for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s high-publicized Royal Visit to Prince Edward Island in 2011. Tim Chaisson also has his sights on an international stage with his third trip back to Australia set for December 2012 in support of Australian The Other Side album release.
