MATT ANDERSEN Coal Mining Blues

Posted: August 22, 2011  

The much anticipated project from the multi-award winning Bairdsville, New Brunswick  Bluesman will soon be released.

MATT ANDERSEN Coal Mining BluesCoal Mining Blues is packed with powerful lyrics, incredible playing and the soulful sounds fans around the world and especially here in the Atlantic Provinces have grown to adore from Mr. Matt Andersen.

The project was produced by Colin Linden at Levon Helm’s studio in Woodstock, NY, mixed in Nashville by Linden himself and mastered at Sterling Sound in NYC .

Coal Mining Blues is set to drop Sept. 20/11 along with news of a major tour that will once again see Andersen wow them from coast to coast and across the pond. (Speaking of which, be sure to watch the video above as Matt performs the title track to his forthcoming album in Scotland last fall)

In the meantime you can catch Matt at a performance near you and of course see him when he returns to his old stomping grounds at the Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival next month.

The first single from the album entitled “Fired Up” will be released to iTunes and CMT next week (w/o 08/29/11) so stayed tuned for that and much more from the marvellous Matt Andersen. SABS
