Matt Andersen & The Bona Fide

Matt-Andersen-A_GoodNoisePhotography-1024x701Acclaimed East Coast singer-songwriter Matt Andersen returns to the Maritimes with his new album Honest Man, due out Feb. 26 on True North Records, for four performances with his band The Bona Fide and special guest Donovan Woods.

Recently named Male Vocalist of the Year at the Maple Blues Awards, Matt Andersen has been enthralling audiences with his one of a kind performance in North America, Europe and Australia for years. He has four Maple Blues Awards, 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.

Joining Andersen on stage is The Bona Fide: Behind the drum set is Geoff Arsenault (Daniel Lanois, Matt Mays, Al Tuck, Mary Jane Lamond), a multifaceted artist with a soulful sensibility known for his generous and harmonious style. On bass and harmonica is the JUNO Award winning multi-instrumentalist and producer Steve Marriner (MonkeyJunk, Harry Manx). And taking up the guitar and keys is Chris Kirby (Wide Mouth Mason, Big Sugar), a 10-time ECMA nominee, 5 time Music Newfoundland Award winner, and in demand songwriter, co-writing with the likes of Tim Chaisson, Phil Churchill (The Once), Eddie Schwartz, Stephen Fearing, and many others.
