Matt Andersen

New Brunswick might not be the first place you would think to look for blues and soul, but if so, that just means you haven't seen Matt Andersen. Matt won the Blues Foundation's International Blues Challenge in Memphis, and his soulful voice is matched in intensity by his brittle, captivating acoustic guitar style. Matt does what we guarantee is the greatest version of "Ain't No Sunshine" since the days of Bill Withers. He's opened for Little Feat, Bo Diddley, Randy Bachman, and David "Honeyboy" Edwards in between about 250 annual headliner dates of his own all over North America and  UK. Matt's unique blues sound incorporates elements of rock, country, and other roots traditions, and pickers of any instrument are sure to learn a thing or two on the way to a great time. Since we saw Matt last at The Ark, he's released a new album, "Halfway Home by Morning."
