Jim Bryson Returns with New Solo Album
Published Jan 12, 2016It's been a long time coming, but Ottawa folk rock singer Jim Bryson has finally announced the details behind his next solo album. Titled Somewhere We Will Find Our Place, Bryson's first proper solo set in nine years sees release February 19 through his own Fixed Hinge Records/Fontana North.
While Bryson had offered up Christmas music collection Instant Holiday Album in 2012 and the Weakerthans collaboration The Falcon Lake Incident in 2010, Somewhere We Will Find Our Place marks his first proper solo album since 2007's Where the Bungalow Roams. It's explained that the upcoming 12-song set focuses on "rawness and subtle truths."
Though it's a solo record, musician Charles Spearin (Do Make Say Think, Broken Social Scene) and producer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, Weezer) helped Bryson put Somewhere We Will Find Our Place together in the studio.
"This is a really important and special record for me," Bryson said in a statement, adding, "And while I know all records have that, there was just something in the water when we recorded these songs."
