ABC Music to release 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. The golden voiced multi-instrumentalist won a legion of new fans with his breath-taking acoustic sets, and his Sydney Blues and Roots Festival performance was selected in the Top 10 Australian shows of 2011 by Back on home soil, Tim was nominated for Entertainer of the Year and Video of the Year at the recent 2012 East Coast Music Awards in Moncton.

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 my writing 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 live work. 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!”
