Ben Matthews Presents: LIVEWYRE Album Launch
Thursday 29 June 7.00pm
Pianist and Composer Ben Matthews is excited to launch his latest album LIVEWYRE. LIVEWYRE is an original blend of cinematic, groove, neo-soul, jazz, ambient and fusion sounds. Much of the music draws influence of musicians who blend genres in their own writing style; the compositional sounds of jazz masters like Esperanza Spalding, Hiromi Uehara, Robert Glasper (etc) are alluded to throughout the music of the LiveWyre project.
Teaser tracks and prepurchase opportunities will be released in the weeks leading up to the launch via Ben’s mailing list ( http://eepurl.com/cmY1Lr ) and facebook page ( http://facebook.com/benmatthewspresents ) – jump on in to stay in the loop!
Tonight’s music will be powered by these local incredibles:
Joe Southwell – Electric Bass
Danny Susnjar – Drums
Sean Little – Tenor Saxophone
Holli Scott (guest artist) – Vocals
Ben Matthews – Piano
This project was successfully crowdfunded in 2016 by 138 pledgers from across the globe. This double CD album will be available on the evening for $20.
