Australian blues guitar virtuoso Matty T Wall is getting ready to release his debut full-length album, Blue Skies, and is set to celebrate by bringing his incredible fret chops and his formidable band around the country this May.
Blue Skies is unashamedly a modern blues album, and brings together blazing guitar work, soulfully written originals along with some well-chosen classics, and stakes Wall’s claim as a new artist to watch for fans of Australia’s thriving blues underbelly.
The album was recorded between Perth and New York, with engineering completed by Dan Carroll and Matt Gio, who’s previously worked with the likes of Katy Steele, San Cisco, Abbe May, Birds Of Tokyo, and Gyroscope.
Blue Skies is available online and in stores through Only Blues Music from 18th April. Matty’s album launch tour is set to kick off in Perth this May, before making its way across the Nullarbor to the trek along the East Coast.
