Label: Hipsterdumpster Records – Release date: 22nd May 2016
Blistering fretwork, soulful vocals and sterling songcraft: with Blue Skies, his debut release, Matty T Wall pays homage to the masters of the blues while carving his own distinctive signature into the walls of this rich musical legacy.
From Perth, Australia, Matty originally discovered his chosen genre while exploring the roots of rock. As a disciple of musical history, his artistry traces tributaries of his influences back to their sources – from Robert Johnson to Jimi Hendrix -- while delivering a fervent, modern take on a deeply traditional form. A ferocious band ignites a slate of songs that retain a rough and ready live quality with a potent rhythm section and swirling keyboards framing Matty’s signature guitar and confessional voice.
Incisive, engaging and adventurous, Matty T Wall is a young man with an old soul and new music: With his debut release, he blows away the clouds to reveal Blue Skies.
