SongoftheDay: FIREWATCH by JIM BRYSON

(You’ll never meet a nicer guy.  Jim has been turning the Ottawa music scene upside down with his awesomeness for 20 years now.  Every time I listen to Kathleen Edwards play her fantastic music, I can hear how much Jim Bryson had to do with her growth.  If he isn’t already a legend in these parts, he soon will be.  Here’s what the folks at Megaphono Festival had to say about him. – FATS)

Jim Bryson is an Ottawa-area singer-songwriter, instrumentalist and producer. He has released 4 critically acclaimed solo recordings and is currently finishing up a 5th recording, produced by Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene, Do Make Say Think, Feist) to be released in the first half of 2015.

jimbryson4Jim 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’ “Angel’s.” 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.
