ECMA is deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Koady Chaisson. Koady was a mainstay on the ECMA stage as part of PEI’s East Pointers, a band that has done incredible things to represent the East Coast on the Global stage.
Those who knew Koady knew him as a kind, funny, and talented individual. He did so much to lift up others, and alongside Tim and Jake, spent a good part of the first wave of the pandemic continuing to entertain and lift us up with their ECMA winning project, #Annedemic. Just one example of a project that showcased how much Koady wanted to help others through music and art.
This loss has sent waves through our industry, and will leave a large hole on our stages for years to come. ECMA extends our heartfelt condolences to Koady’s family, friends, and to all in the music industry who are grieving.
