In many respects, Matt Andersen is 'larger than life' - His voice is large, his talent is large and to say the big man has a commanding presence on stage is an understatement at best. In the past few years, Matt has released an introductory EP along with two critically-acclaimed live fans' favorites, full length studio releases "Second time around", "Something In-between" "Piggyback" with harmonica virtuoso Mike Stevens and "Live at the Phoenix Theater". Along with a very busy touring schedule as a headliner at major festivals, clubs and theaters throughout North America and the UK, Matt has also shared the stage and toured with David "Honeyboy" Edwards, America, Randy Bachman, the late Bo Diddley, Little Feat and a host of others. He played over 200 live performances last year,including his fourth UK tour. The two time East Coast Music Award winner also won the 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn.; the first Canadian to do so. The audience at the Capitol Theater in Moncton, N.B. was psyched, to say the least, for the return of their native son and blues-man, and he 'delivered the goods'.
