Tim Chaisson – The Other Side (Bumstead)

Thanks to seemingly ceaseless touring since his 2009 record Broken Hearted Beat, Prince Edward Island’s Tim Chaisson has seen his stock rise exponentially at home and abroad. And who can blame people for jumping on this train now? There are definitive “East Coast” pop aspects to be found throughout these 11 songs. And like many East Coast musicians before him, Chaisson’s strengths lie in his songwriting. He has delivered a world-class pop record that should see him having little trouble to find an international audience.
