8.30pm Matty T Wall
A young man with an old soul: Matty is connected to music with a wealth of history as he distills a diversity of genres into his own blues-influenced soul, jazz and rock.
As a guitarist, Matty wrings raw emotions from single notes, stretching and bending the strings of a Les Paul into sounds both persuasive and human. While he is capable of blazingly fast leads, he also drives the beat with percussive punctuation and solid assurance. With his vocals, he coils along the lines of the guitar. “I enjoy using my voice as another instrument,” he avows.
While the music that Matty plays has roots in the past, he is very much an artist in the present.
9.45pm Empire Blues
Empire Blues is an established, dynamic Blues Power trio whose primary influences come from the British Blues invasion of the 1960s. Initially the band took its material from this period, but over time it has moved to performing more original material in the belief that for Blues music to evolve, you can’t keep just repeating the past.
Formed in 2005 the band features prominent Western Australian Blues musicians: Andrew McIlroy (guitar/vocal) Alan Dawson (bass guitar/vocal) Frank Shinall (drums).
