The Matty T Wall Band – One Hot Night Out
Friday 19 July 7.00pm
The global acclaim keeps coming for WA blues-rock purveyor, Matty T Wall, with the news that he has been nominated in three categories in the US-based 2019 Independent Blues Awards.
Wall gained nominations for ‘Best Modern Roots Album’ (Sidewinder), ‘Best Blues Rock Band’ and ‘Best Modern Roots Song’ for the track, Something Beautiful.
The nominations split the blues genre with nods in the ‘Best Modern Roots Album’ and ‘Best Blues Rock Band’ proving that Wall’s music has diverse appeal.
“It’s a sign that the music isn’t easily pigeon-holed,” he says, “which is good and I do like that. It shows that it’s unique and that’s a good thing. Obviously I want to be different; I don’t want to be the same as everyone else. It’s a good sign for me.”
The world is calling for Matty T Wall and he’s certainly going to answer, but good timing and preparation is of the essence.
Wall’s not sitting around in any case, work continues on his collaborative blues guitar LP project and a number of Eastern States festivals are booked and ready to roll through September to November.
Wall’s recent string of shows at Clancy’s Fremantle, Ellington Jazz Club, Duke Of George and The Basso have captured a trio of musicians on fire. Blues/Rock fans are advised to catch his next run of shows before he gets busy over East.
“The band is killing it right now,” he says, happily. “We’re doing our blues rock thing and it’s just all flowing. People are up and dancing and the gigs have been freaking amazing.”
