Matt Andersen has paid his dues (probably some of yours and mine as well) and is now reaping the rewards of his labour with international recognition and a jammed packed tour schedule.

We caught up with Matt at his home in Nova Scotia on the eve of the beginning of his new live show schedule -The Honest Man Tour. “I feel really fortunate that I’m able to go out on these tours and enough people like my music and support me to make it all possible.” This tour is a solo tour and I asked Matt, who tours with his band as well, ,whether he preferred the band set up or the solo configuration he said “I like them both, neither one is better, just different. As a solo I can change things but I do that with the band anyway. It’s fun to not do the same thing every night. Plus the band is used to me hollering at them on stage.”

And Matt is set to embark on a tour that will see him in the northeast United States in February and March with Canadian gigs in March and April as well before heading to Europe in May and June and back to Canada in July. The boy is busy and enjoying every minute of it. “I feel very fortunate to be able to work as much as I do and be able to share the music with the people.”

Although it’s still true to the style that got him to where he is today the colors provided by producer Commission Gordon pay more attention to the songs than heavy guitar riffs. Gordon,who produced Amy Winehouse and Josh Stone among others as a producer Matt wanted to try on his music. “I liked the idea of trying some of his looped beats and see if we could add a different dimension to the tunes.” The album is masterfully done. With songs this good that was inevitable with the proper treatment and Andersen and Gordon wove a gem of a quilt of musical...
