Jim Bryson is an Ottawa area based singer songwriter, instrumentalist and producer. He has released 5 critically acclaimed solo recordings, including a brand new album, “Somewhere We Will Find Our Place,” which was produced by Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think, Feist).
Jim also has spent a fair amount of time in recent years recording and producing projects, among them Oh Susanna‘s “Namedropper,” and songs for The Skydiggers “Angels”.
Oh and just cause you are asking, Jim also enjoys riding in the musical sidecar, having played and toured with Kathleen Edwards, The Weakerthans and The Tragically Hip.
Jim lives outside of Ottawa with his partner, two daughters and a newly built recording “shed” called Fixed Hinge.
Jim is also one of my very favourite artists in the world. He’s definitely one of our most played artists on the show (tied for 9th most played with Del Barber, at last count,) and his 2003 album, The North Side Benches is our most played album of all time (at last count.) I LOVE Jim’s music! He’s a tremendous songwriter who has a real gift for capturing scenes and places in song. He is also my very favourite guitar player in the country – just listen to Kathleen Edwards‘ album “Failer” to see why. He also happens to be a hell of a good guy.
Thanks to the amazing Devin Latimer (Professor Nathan) who booked Jim for the wonderful Trout Forest Music Festival, Jim will be in Winnipeg in August, and I’m absolutely thrilled that he’ll be able to stop by The Sunset Saloon before heading out to Ear Falls the next day! Folks, you REALLY don’t want to miss this one!
