Award winning soul-blues songwriter engages famed R&B producer Commissioner Gordon for new album Honest Man (True North Records).
Released February 26 via True North Records, Honest Man is the eighth full-length album from the New Brunswick performer. He has been crossing the country with his band The Bona Fide since February 16 in support playing sublime sets that move from blistering abandon to stripped down moments of pure magic along the way. The multi-award winning artist will be bringing his live show home to New Brunswick for four very special performances beginning April 11 with JUNO Award nominated songwriter Donovan Woods.
Produced in New York with Commissioner Gordon (Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, KRS-One), Honest Man follows up the JUNO Award nominated Weightless and sees the songwriter pushing himself into new territory. From writing around drum beats to bringing in a cast of players including Andy Bassford (Toots and the Maytals, Burning Spear, Natalie Merchant) Benjamin Bouton (Ibibio Sound Machine), Josh David Barrett (The Wailers, Lauryn Hill), and Lenny Underwood (Mary J. Blige, Amy Winehouse), Honest Man expands on what we already know and love from Andersen and brings it to a new level.
Matt Andersen has been enthralling audiences with his one of a kind performance in North America, Europe and Australia for years. And besides his four Maple Blues Awards, he has a Memphis Blues Challenge win, a CIMA Road Gold Award, a European Blues Award, and a JUNO Award nomination. A powerhouse performer with a giant soul-filled voice and commanding stage presence, Andersen 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.
