Booked your tickets now listen to 24 Angels from the forthcoming album Stolen Hearts

Fourth track of the Album, 24 Angels  a song is about morality and forgiveness. While Erja wrote the lyrics she  was thinking of death row, when the final judgement comes. How does the person feel while walking that last walk? Relief? Fear?  Written in a more minor key and co-written with songwriter and guitarist Alan Darby. Last year I went to India to play some shows. During the slide solo I played an Indian scale with semitones, which gives the song a more of a mysterious vibe.

Matt Andersen Touring Summer 2017

Matt Andersen, acclaimed, multi award-winning artist; including winning Best Solo Performer at the Memphis Blues Challenge, it appears that the entire world is now discovering Matt Andersen. His vocals, as well as guitar playing, captures attention with three consecutive Maple Blues Award for Male Vocalist of the Year.

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.

 

Matt Anderson;s current album Honest Man recorded in New York and produced by Commissioner Gordon (Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, KRS­One), Honest Man follows up the JUNO Award nominated Weightless and sees the songwriter pushing himself into new territory. Blessed with a rich gospel soul voice and armed with a new set of songs, Matt Andersen found a perfect partner in crime with Commissioner Gordon.

The ten songs that make up Honest Man explore both the political and the personal. The title track, co-­written with Chris Kirby, was inspired by a US political cartoon while “Let’s Get Back”, co­-penned with Andy Stochansky, has Andersen thinking about how his country as a nation has changed, but not for the better. “Who Are You Listening To?” was hatched with Ryan Hupman during a pre­-election social media flood and emerges as a rally call for people to make up their own minds and not be swung by the ‘information’ we’re being fed.

Now is your opportunity to hear Matt Anderson live across UK and Europe.
