MattyTWall - Unplugged & Almost
Saturday 20 May 7.00pm
The MattyTWall band takes on a more sophisticated jazz club vibe for this one-off show, moving through cool soul and acoustic blues sounds, exploring the contemplative side of his originals, along with a whole selection of contemporary hits and historic gems.
Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, Matty T Wall’s blues guitar playing style was born at the crossroads but he takes it further along the highway with a lifelong love for jazz, flamenco, metal, electronic, folk and roots music. The fascinating manner in which Wall fuses this melange of diverse musical obsessions saw his 2016 album, Blue Skies, receive a nomination for ‘Blues Album Of The Year’ at the Independent Music Awards(USA), and the release has since rated in allaboutbluesmusic.com’s ‘Top 20 Blues Albums Of The Year’ alongside the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton among others.
Wall and his consummate rhythm section (bass player Stephen Walker and drummer Ric Whittle, also a long-time skinsman for VDELLI) have for some time now been a fixture on blues festivals around Australia, and he looks forward to taking their intoxicating blues sound around the US and Europe, all the way from the most remote city in the world.
‘Unplugged & Almost’ is a one-off show of this type for the MattyTWall band, and may not ever be repeated, so book your tickets early.
