Juno Award nominated singer and song writer Matt Andersen is a modern great. Having been making music for over 14 years, playing an average of 200 gigs a year, his boundless experience shows in his remarkable skill which make for unmissable live performances. By playing so many small clubs he has built his wide spread fan base the old fashioned way; by actually going out and playing to the people. So even when Andersen does play to a larger crowd, he is still able to capture the intimacy when making a festival performance.
Following the release of his most recent record entitled Honest Man, Andersen will make rare UK appearances for the new year. See him perform at Dingwalls in London and The Bodega at Nottingham during March 2019.
Matt Andersen tickets will become available online at 10:00 on Friday 7th of December. Make sure you set your personal reminder through Gigantic so you don’t miss out.

“Though this album has sounds that originate in the ’70s, it all seems very novel in today’s indie-rock environment. ” - New Noise Magazine
“His recently released album Honest Man is filled with artfully written bluesy songs and acoustic jams, with lush instrumentation coupled with Andersen’s acoustic guitar and powerful soul voice.” - Spaced Out Scientist
