About This Project

Ottawa, ON

Jim Bryson is one of Ottawa’s most treasured singer-songwriters, instrumentalists, and producers (voted Ottawa’s “Best Folk Band/Artist” in 2006). His four previously released solo recording — The Occasionals, North Side Benches (2003), Where the Bungalows Roam, The Falcon Lake Incident — turned heads from in Canada and the UK, making Bryson a regular at festival events around the country, and led to extensive tours of Europe, the US, and Canada alongside Canadian folk icons Kathleen Edwards, the Weakerthans, and The Tragically Hip. In February we finally saw Bryson’s first proper solo album in nine years with the release of Somewhere We Will Find Our Place on his own Fixed Hinge Records/Fontana North, produced by Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think, Feist). When not melting hearts with his melodic tales of change and discovery, Bryson has spent a vast amount of time recording and producing projects, among them Oh Susanna’s Namedropper, and songs for The Skydiggers Angel’s.
