Description

Matt Anderson is a major new voice in Canadian blues and soul! With over five million views on YouTube, independent sales over 30,000 albums, a 2013 European Blues Award, and a win as Best Solo Performer at the Memphis Blues Challenge, it appears that the entire world is now discovering Matt Andersen. A powerhouse performer with a giant soul-filled voice and commanding stage presence, Matt has built a formidable following the old fashioned way—touring worldwide and letting the converted audiences and Andersen devotees spread his reputation through word of mouth. In addition to headlining major festivals, clubs and theatres throughout North America, Europe and Australia, Matt has shared the stage and toured with Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Greg Allman, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Randy Bachman, Little Feat, Jonny Lang, Serena Ryder, and more. Andersen has won the 2013 Euro Blues Award for Best Solo /Acoustic Act and three Maple Blues Awards in 2012, and he won  2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Since the release of Weightless in early 2014, Matt has received a JUNO nomination for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year, a CIMA Road Gold award, and a Maple Blues Award for Male Vocalist of the Year. Lee Harvey Osmond (the psychedelic folk alter ego of Tom Wilson of Blackie & The Rodeo Kings) opens.
