With over 2 million views on YouTube, a 2013 European Blues Award and winning Best Solo Performer at the Memphis International Blues Challenge, it appears that the entire world is now discovering Matt Andersen.
Hailing from the blue collar community of Perth–Andover, New Brunswick, Andersen has been steadily building his sizable following in Canada and around the world through word of mouth about his electrifying live shows. 2014 promises to be a banner year for him, with over 250 confirmed dates worldwide — 60 across Canada starting in February, including a headlining appearance at Massey Hall on March 1 in Toronto.
Weightless is infused with Andersen's unparalleled dexterity on the guitar. With GRAMMY Award–winning producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Great Big Sea, Tragically Hip) behind the boards, Andersen's command of the blues and his distinctive soulful voice have been captured on record as never before.
