Tim Chaisson Biography

Tim Chaisson (born September 6, 1986) is a Canadian singer/songwriter and is the front man of Tim Chaisson & Morning Fold based in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Previously, Chaisson was a member of the Canadian Celtic/contemporary group, Kindle. Chaisson was born in Bear River, Prince Edward Island.

Early years
Tim Chaisson is a member of the Chaisson family, who are prominent in the music scene of Prince Edward Island. Though he had been playing many instruments since he was a child, Chaisson began his professional career at the age of 14 when he was asked to join Celtic/contemporary band Kindle with his two brothers and three cousins as their bassist. He was the youngest member of the group, touring from 2000 to 2005.
Solo career
At the age of 15, Chaisson embarked on a solo career locally, and released his first solo album, Timothy Chaisson, which mainly focused on traditional songs. In 2004, he released his second independent album, where Chaisson was able to showcase his songwriting and instrumental abilities. This album, Something Acoustic, was a mixture of traditional and original songs as well as traditional fiddle tunes. Chaisson later recorded his album, Even, which featured 10 original songs. It features Chaisson's instrumental abilities playing acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums, piano, mandolin, fiddle and vocals. Released in 2006, it received many awards and nominations. Later in 2011, he was chosen as Musical Director for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's highly publicized Royal Visit to PEI.
Tim Chaisson & Morning Fold and Broken Hearted Beat
In 2008, Chaisson was joined by Morning Fold, which consisted of Chaisson, guitarist Tian Wigmore, bassist Brien McCarthy, and drummer Nathaniel Lamoureux. In September 2009, Tim Chaisson & Morning Fold released their album, Broken Hearted Beat which was recorded in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia at Joel Plaskett's New Scotland Yard Studio and in Austin, Texas at Willie Nelson's Pedernales Studio. The album was co-written by Chaisson, Plaskett, and Gordie Johnson. Johnson also produced the album. In March 2010, the band filmed their first music video for "Broken Hearted Beat" in Toronto with Canadian director John "JP" Poliquin. The video was released in May 2010 on CMT and also made it to the #1 spot on Much More Music's Top 10. Immediately following the video's release, its single was released and made it to #1 on the East Coast Countdown. The music video for "Slippin' Away", also directed by Poliquin, was released in October 2010. It reached #8 on the Much More Music Top 20 Countdown.
