A powerhouse performer with a giant, soul-filled voice and commanding stage presence, Matt Andersen has built a formidable following the old-fashioned way: Touring worldwide and letting his stunned audiences and new devotees spread the good word on his righteous tunes. And the world has indeed awoke and discovered him, helping him amass over 18 million views on YouTube. In addition to headlining major festivals, clubs and theaters throughout North America, Europe, and Australia, Andersen has been awarded two European Blues Award for Best Solo/Acoustic Act, six Maple Blues Awards for Male Vocalist and was the first ever Canadian to take home top honors in the solo/duo category at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis.
