MattyTWall – Blues-Rock Masterpiece
Saturday 11 May 8.00pm
WA blues shapeshifter Matty T Wall is set to continue his 2019 live assault of WA stages, with an epic, not-to-be-missed night at the iconic Prince Of Wales Hotel in Bunbury.
It comes as overseas acclaim continues to pour in. Wall featured on the cover of the December/January issue of Blues & Co, France’s national blues magazine, and his song, Walk Out The Door, was recently nominated in the International Song Competition’s ‘Blues Category’, and is now charting in the Netherlands. This marks the fifth time Wall has hit the Dutch Top 100, joining previous chartbusters Sidewinder, Broken Heart Tattoo, Burnin’ Up Burnin’ Down and This Is Real, the latter trio from his debut album, 2016’s Blue Skies.
Wall is currently working on a ‘guitar-jam’ project featuring guests such as Eric Gales, Dave Hole, Kid Ramos and Kirk Fletcher soloing over selections from the blues songbook. He’s also assumed the mantle of Australian Blues Columnist for UK magazine, Blues Matters.
With his cracking band (Stephen Walker on bass with drummer Ric Whittle) Wall brings it, live and kicking, to a newly announced run of shows…..
“We’ve got a really pumping live show at the moment,” he says, proudly. “The band is locked in, really tightly. It’s really punching well. We’ve got about five hours’ worth of material to play in total, so we’re going to be able to switch up songs here and there. I really like extending songs as well, especially the instrumental songs, so you’ll see a lot of improvisation happening and from there we’ll make different experiences.”
“We’ll be looking at recording these gigs as well, so perhaps we’ll get a release out. We’ll see how we go there.”
Don’t miss the Matty T Wall Trio’s triumphant return to The Prince Of Wales, Saturday 11th May.
