Jeremy Fisher & Jim Bryson
Canadian folk-pop troubadours.
Friday, March 9, 2012
It’s a hard slog to be a singer songwriter, and harder still to be successful at it. Add to that an artist that favours unusual instrumentation like the mandolin and ukulele and prefers to tour countries by bicycle, and you don’t just have a musical anomaly – you have Canadian folk-pop troubadour Jeremy Fisher.
Jim Bryson is from Canada's "small town" capital city, Ottawa. His songs are a cultivated mix of hope and doubt, longing and uncertainty, and are flush with endearing tales culled from the town he calls home. They have been described as "folk songs played with rock instruments” and “rock songs played with folk instruments”, while in truth they almost consistently lilt and sway between the two.
