It’s called the Peace, Love and Inspiration tour. And with Chris Assaad manning the musical wheel, there’s no doubt that fans will receive all three in spades. Bringing his feel-good brand of folk, roots and rock to the forefront, Assaad is ready to hit up a variety of venues to show his fans just how far a little musical love can travel.
Discovery and moving forward has always been the name of the game for Assaad. From backpacking throughout Europe with a guitar in the early days of finding his voice, to having toured throughout Canada and independently organizing tours throughout Australia, these experiences have remained essential to his growth and development. And now playing select cities from Ontario to BC, there’s little doubt that this tour will be a constant source of inspiration not just for himself, artistically, but for those in attendance as well.
Following the release of his debut album Glory Fire, Chris Assaad is taking standout tracks like the melodically-charged ‘Pave The Way’ and funkified ‘Better Left Unsaid’ to the stage as well as new tracks from his upcoming, yet to be named new album. Kevin Mendes will join him on drums, flushing out his songs while maintaining the intense, stripped down feel of his tracks. In December, Chris heads across the globe to tour the east coast of Australia, starting at Peats Ridge Music Festival as one of select Canadian acts invited alongside Jason Collett, Zeus, and Dan Mangan.
“Watch out for these guys over the next year as they ride their incredibly well recorded and excellent sounding debut.” – Fazer Magazine
