You all know that the writer in me likes to set the story up right, so today is no different. Sorry. No long stories short on this one either.
Some of you may know that I’m a fan of CBC Radio. Some of you may know that one of my favourite programs is the Vinyl Cafe. When we moved to Comox last summer, I got wind that Stuart was bringing the show west and so I immediately snagged tickets for BH and I. BH wasn’t overly keen (mostly because he was UNAWARE of the infamous Dave and Morley stories), but he was willing to accompany me, because he loves me. One of the reasons I love him.
Fast forward to the night of the show and who does Stuart have with him, but MATT ANDERSEN! Love, love, love this guy’s voice! I’d first heard him on Vinyl Cafe, but I’d never imagined that he’d be touring with Stuart and be there that night.
Dream come true. Matt Andersen *and* Vinyl Cafe? Wow. It didn’t get any better than that!
As an interesting sidenote, BH also loved Matt’s music and in fact, Matt’s performance inspired us to buy ourselves our own guitars! While we’re not quite ready to join the ranks of Matt just yet, we are trying! We’ve got Yankee Doodle memorized and almost down pat.
Fast forward again to a couple of weeks ago and my beady little eyes spot in the paper that Matt is coming to town. Well, to Cumberland, which is the next town over.
So, again I snag tickets, noting that Matt’s touring with this guy named, Wil.
Alright then. Should be good.
Hah! Was I wrong.
It wasn’t good. It was UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME. The guy rocks and BH and I became instant fans. We could not stop grinning the entire time he performed.
So, now I’ll do the long story short…
If you have a chance to catch these two as they travel across Canada, do it! RUN now and get tickets. These guys are phenomenal and sell out fast, especially since they like to play cozy venues where everyone can just hang out and mix.
If you can appreciate honest lyrics, unbelievable guitar talent, and amazing vocals, then these guys will not disappoint.
