“Deep emotions delivered by an impassioned singer with strong songs and a tight backing band. How can you go wrong?” You just can’t. Pick this soulful work up!
– Blues Blast Magazine
“Prepare to be not just impressed, but moved. On Break, the soulful songs can heal your broken heart, or they can break it, leaving you begging for mercy and begging for more. Just like life itself”
– Rock and Blues Muse
“Whirling sounds of organ, bountiful blasts of brass, and a groovy sax solo puts me in my happy space” Philly Cheeze’s Rock and Blues Reviews
“Proving himself as a true artist through and through time and time again, Bisson checks off every box with Break” – Canada Beats
This Hamilton-based band’s horn-based retro soul moves markedly forward with an all-original program by Bisson, the bandleader, vocalist and guitar player and sometime piano player.
One listen, though, will tell you that he has a fine group of willing accomplices on board. Add in a couple of guests and you can transport yourself right back to the Club Bluenote. “Bad Scene” serves up a slab of funk for the opener. “Wasting Time” & “Timeless Love” keep the groove going with gorgeous melodies, something Bisson excels at.
