Hot on the heels of two highly celebrated performances with multi-platinum artist Johnny Reid in Peterborough and Hamilton, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Tim Chaisson, announced today that he’ll hit the road in 2014 for a select run of dates with the Goo Goo Dolls in Canada.
A gifted performer, Chaisson has always shone brightest from the stage – captivating audiences with his impassioned singing, melodic guitar riffs and renowned fiddle playing. Last week Chaisson was chosen by JUNO and CCMA Award winning artist Johnny Reid as the opening act for Reid’s holiday shows in Peterborough and Hamilton. Chaisson will join Reid again next week for shows in Moncton and Halifax. Prior to heading east, Chaisson will take the stage at The Rivoli in Toronto on December 14th, for what is sure to be a fantastic show. See full list of dates below.
Chaisson’s latest effort “The Other Side” – a stripped down, intimate taste of honest heartfelt songwriting was released in the fall of 2012. With Chaisson’s vocals and guitar at the heart of the recordings, the album features upbeat, vibrant energy rooted rock like “Bail You Out,” while “Til The Sun Comes Up,” carries an influence of classic country. “The Other Side” explores Chaisson’s expanding breath of life experience, and musicality touching on pop, folk and country. Not surprising that he was named a Top 6 finalists in the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) 2013 Discovery Program and nominated for ‘Best Discovery Singer-Songwriter’ In The 2013 ‘Best Of 2013′ poll on SIRIUSXM’s The Coffee House.
Since the release of “The Other Side”, Chaisson has ventured across Australia on five successful solo tours, hit Top 10 with lead single, “Beat This Heart,” a duet with critically-heralded songstress Serena Ryder, and performed to ever-expanding audiences across the globe, on club and festival stages alike. Sharing stages with acclaimed artists; Lady Antebellum, The Trews, Johnny Reid and more, Chaisson has also amassed his share of awards and accolades, including his first East Coast Music Award for Roots/Traditional Solo Artist of the Year (2013) and the Canadian Organization of Campus Activities 2013 Main stage Act of the Year Award.
Chaisson is thrilled to join the Goo Goo Dolls tour in 2014; bringing forth a charismatic, humble and artisan approach to his live show. He’s one of the country’s most promising talents – one to be seen.
