The East Pointers
Fans of The East Pointers have Koady Chaisson to thank for being the kinetic force behind the JUNO-Award winning indie-folk trio since the group formed in 2014. The dancefloor-shaking, electro-trad glorious combination of folk/pop has brought so much joy to audiences around the world. And even now, Koady’s energetic fire continues to blaze the musical trail onward. Woodfordia has been the setting for life-changing relationships and moments for all members of the band, and even though it’s two on the stage now, it’s still three in the band as The East Pointers return to Australia for these ‘hometown’ shows. Before Koad’s passing, he, Tim Chaisson, and Jake Charron had recorded most of the tracks for two new EPs. Unlike any of The East Pointers’ material to date, these precious songs are shiny and melodic, nostalgia-flared, folk experimental pop but with the same driving trad hooks for which the band has become known and revered. The first EP, House of Dreams, was released in September 2022 and was nominated for a JUNO Award in 2023. The second EP, Safe In Sound, will be released in Spring 2023.
