Tim Chaisson Returns To Australia For Live Dates and New Single 'Broken Hearted Beat'

Canada’s Tim Chaisson will return to our shores in May for an extensive run of live shows, playing with the likes of Tim Freedman, Diesel, Matt Andersen and Morgan Joanel, as he continues to work his album Broken Hearted Beat. To co-incide with his visit, ABC Music will release the album’s title track, the single impacting at radio w/c 23rd April, with accompanying video to follow.

Chaisson, who has performed over 200 shows in support of independent musical gem Broken Heated Beat, first visited Australia in October last year.

With three solo albums under his belt and current album, ‘Broken Hearted Beat’ with his band Morning Fold, Chaisson is presently working on his fifth studio album with producer Colin Linden. Linden, who has worked with a wide variety of artists including Bruce Cockburn, Lucinda Williams, T-Bone Burnett and The Band, is also lead guitarist for Emmylou Harris's band, “The Red Dirt Boys”.

Chaisson is excited to be returning to Australia, saying today, “I had an incredible time playing in Australia last year and have been waiting for a break in mywriting and recording schedule to return. I’m looking forward to these shows, especially the chance with Tim Freedman and Diesel, who are so well respected for their recording and livework. I’m going to be previewing some of the songs from my forthcoming album on you Aussies, as well as tracks from ‘Broken Hearted Beat’, I can’t wait!”
