Award-winning Canadian soul-bluesman Matt Andersen recently announced the release of his upcoming album, Halfway Home by Morning (True North Records) — available worldwide Friday, March 22, 2019. This release will include upcoming singles, "Free Man" and "Quarter on the Ground,” which will both be released Friday, January 18, 2019.
Unbridled joy springs eternal from Halfway Home by Morning. His tenth full-length release, the album was recorded live off the floor in Nashville, Tennessee and deftly captures the New Brunswick-native’s long-signature and internationally celebrated sound: sweat-soaked soul meets incendiary rhythm and blues, with full doses of heartsick folk and Americana grit mixed in for good measure.
Nearly two decades into his storied career, Andersen’s room-shaking, heart-quaking voice has won him countless awards, including two European Blues Awards, seven Maple Blues Awards, an International Blues Challenge, a Canadian Independent Music Association nod and a JUNO Award nomination.
Andersen will support the release with a tour, beginning February 7, 2019, with dates in the US, UK and Europe, with more to be announced.
