The Other Tim Chaisson 

With the stripped down new album The Other Side in tow, the PEI singer-songwriter shares a more intimate side of himself.

  • Tim Chaisson's stoic side.

Tim Chaisson has a couple of sides. There's the country-tinged rocker who you're probably familiar with, the one who commands a stage with his energetic band of buddies Morning Fold. But peel back a few layers like he did for this, his fifth release, and you get the very core of the PEI native: the storyteller. "This record is really about the songs, I focussed more on that than anything. I wrote 25 or 26 songs with different people on the road," says Chaisson who says he looked to his rootsier side for inspiration for the stripped down, fresh-off-the-presses The Other Side. "I like to write alone as well, but this just opens up the song to a different level. It means a bit more." Halifax marks the beginning of Chaisson's next long haul on the road, this one will take him to the other side (of the country, that is) and back.

Friday September 28, Seahorse Tavern, 1665 Argyle Street, 9pm, $10
