Newfoundland's Jason Benoit is gearing up to release his EP ‘Time Traveller Side B’ in early 2023 building off the success of the critically acclaimed ‘Time Traveller Side A’ which has achieved almost two million global streams to date. Jason, who co-wrote and co-produced the lead single ‘Time Traveller’, which was released on October 7th, reflects on the journey that brought him to telling this story.

Jason goes on to say, “I've always been a sucker for a song that has a double meaning and I thought it would be a challenge to write a song called "Time Traveller" because Sci-fi and country music rarely fit together. So, me and my good buddy Gerry Foote took on that challenge head on and sat down with a couple beers on a sunny summer afternoon and wrote it and we are really proud of what we created.”

Running with the momentum of a year full of shows including Canadian Music Week in Toronto, CCMA Songwriters Unplugged, supporting Tenille Townes and numerous festivals across the country ‘Time Traveller’ has already landed on editorial playlists on major digital streaming platforms including Spotify’s New Music Friday Country and Live Country and Amazon Music’s Just North of Nashville, Brand New Music, Fresh Country and more. Benoit’s previous single, ‘Shootin’ Me Down’ is currently #48 on the Billboard Canada Country Chart.

Recently nominated for 5 MusicNL Awards, including Indigenous Artist of the Year, Country Artist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Solo Artist of the Year and Fan’s Choice Entertainer of the Year, Jason Benoit appreciates the support that he gets from his home province.
