Guitarist and songwriter Matt Andersen announces the release of his new album Weightless, due out Jan. 28, 2014, and will perform four dates in the Maritimes as part of his 60-date worldwide album release tour.
Weightless was recorded with Grammy-winning producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) at the Sonic Temple in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The much lauded songwriter, who hails from the blue collar community of Perth-Andover, New Brunswick, is known for his electrifying live shows, and has been steadily building his fan base in Canada and around the world. 2014 promises to be a banner year with his 60-date tour culminating in a Massey Hall show on March 1 in Toronto.
Dusty with some shimmer, the new album is infused with Andersen’s unparalleled dexterity on the guitar, cut with moments of songwriterly reflection. With Steve Berlin acting as grace note behind the boards, Andersen’s command of blues and soul are tempered in just the right places.
