With over 10 million views on YouTube, two European Blues Awards, and winning Best Solo Performer at the Memphis Blues Challenge, it appears that the entire world is now discovering Matt Andersen. A powerhouse performer with a giant soul-filled voice and commanding stage presence, Matt has built a formidable following the old fashioned way – touring worldwide and letting the converted audiences and Andersen devotees spread his reputation through word of mouth. In addition to headlining major festivals, clubs and theatres throughout North America, Europe and Australia, he has shared the stage and toured with Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Greg Allman, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Randy Bachman, Little Feat, Jonny Lang, Serena Ryder, and more. Andersen has won the 2013 and 2016 European Blues Award for Best Solo/Acoustic Act, three Maple Blues Awards in 2012, and nabbed him 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Since the release of Weightless in early 2014, Andersen has received a JUNO nomination for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year, a CIMA Road Gold award, and six Maple Blues Awards for Male Vocalist of the Year.

Andersen’s reputation as a bluesman won him the 2013 Euro Blues Award for Best Solo / Acoustic Act, three Maple Blues Awards in 2012, and nabbed him 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. “The blues is a big part of what I do, and in my solo show some tunes are straight-up blues, for sure,” he says. “But I would never stand beside B.B. King and say, ‘I play blues, too.’ None of my albums are blues albums—I’ve won blues awards with them, but I wouldn’t say they’re blues albums.” Since the release of Weightless in early 2014, Andersen has received a Juno nomination for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year, a CIMA Road Gold award, and a Maple Blues Award for Male Vocalist of the Year. Matt’s next full-length album is set for release in early 2016.
Erin Costelo
Erin Costelo
Erin Costelo is a throwback; a songwriter that brings to mind the 'golden age' of music. Her fifth full-length album, SWEET MARIE, out November 2, 2018 on Compass Records, is 10-song collection recorded in 10 days in a timber-frame home on the ocean in Little Harbour, Nova Scotia. The album was brought to life in January amidst Canadian winter storms and pounding surf of the east coast. Produced by Costelo herself, SWEET MARIE finds the native Nova Scotian looking at a world
and an industry that pushed her to the edge of ending her musical career – and finds her pushing back. Pulsing with a confident and cathartic energy, her incredible voice, drawing comparisons to such icons as Nina Simone and Carole King, soars even as her songs dive deep. Although she wears many influences on her sleeve, Costelo is unquestionably herself, a singular artist of maturity and importance; a maverick, unfetterd by trend, fashion or industry 'pathway.'

She demonstrates this in the new 'SWEET MARIE' documentary, directed by Juno-award winning songwriter-turned-filmmaker Amelia Curran. The
studio documentary is a long standing tradition. It allows the
audience to study the engine of the music they love - pry open the
casing, and view the bones. What is particularly enticing, and what
makes Erin Costelo a great subject for the studio documentary, are her
skills as a producer. This isn't simply tapping a microphone and
slogging through fifty takes; every note from under each performer is
a considered move. How it floats through the studio environment and is
engineered and conditioned out the other side to its audience is a
rodeo of painstaking precision and delight.

Costelo has assembled an ace group of Canadian players for the album,
including Glenn Milchem on drums (Blue Rodeo), Anna Ruddick on bass
(Randy Bachman), Leith Fleming-Smith on organ (Matt Mays, Hawksley
Workman) and her long-time partner, Clive MacNutt, on guitar. Taking inspiration from sources as varied as Dylan and Randy Newman, Costelo delivers a genre-defying batch of songs that sound at once timeless, timely and completely fresh.
