“When he performs, John Chiasson has set and then met a high bar. The vocal line and bass part harmonize, one over the other, and sometimes, multiple octaves apart, it's a dazzling sonic effect to be both halves of, to be standing inside, as John is at those moments. He becomes personally stereophonic.”
John grew up in Antigonish, and studied jazz at St. Francis Xavier University.
The singer/bassist has put true, low notes behind PEI legend Lenny Gallant, the stratospheric pipes of The Rankins, and beneath the fretless lilt of Natalie McMaster's fiddle. In those band roles John toured across Canada and to world stages like London's Royal Albert Hall.
Now based in Halifax, the “John Chiasson Trio” was formed in 1997 and includes Dave Staples on piano and Scott Ferguson on drums.
