Heading to Elora's Riverfest - Jim Bryson and Kalle Mattson are building anticipation with "Road To Riverfest"

About this Event

Jim Bryson is a Canadian "Singer Songer" and record maker. He has released 5 critically acclaimed solo recordings, the most recent being 2016’s Somewhere We Will Find Our Place, which made many a year end list here in Canada, notably Macleans and CBC Music Top 100 songs (2 songs on list).

In recent years, Jim has been recording and producing records for artist from all over in his Fixed Hinge Studio he built in 2013. Some names of note Jim has worked with include Oh Susanna, Little Scream, The Skydiggers and Kalle Mattson.

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 with his partner and children in his old family homestead in Stittsville, Ontario.

Kalle Mattson began recording his Bob Dylan, Wilco, and Weakerthans-inspired folk-rock songs at the age of 17. He issued his debut long-player, Whisper Bee, in 2009, followed by the critically acclaimed, Howie Beck-mixed Anchors in 2011, the latter of which resulted in a pair of Northern Ontario Music Award wins for Album of the Year (Group) and Songwriter of the Year.

An EP, Lives in Between, arrived in 2012 and yielded two viral videos in "Waterfalls" and "Thick as Thieves." It was followed in 2014 by Mattson's third full-length studio album, the Polaris Music Prize-nominated Someday, The Moon Will Be Gold, which was inspired by his hometown on the Canadian/U.S. border and the death of his mother five years prior.

August 2015 saw the release of a new EP, Avalanche, which Mattson described as a mini-LP concerning the twenty-something miasma of "anxiety, nostalgia, the past, the future."
