BLUES: Rockin' Blues, COUNTRY: Country Rock
MATT MINGLEWOOD. ...guitarist, pianist, singer, composer creates an inspired blend of country, blues, roots and rock. He exhibits a true understanding of many styles of music that enables him to create a unique sound, a musician who had done his homework. His records remain fresh, untainted by fads and rock/pop music urban frenzy. Both on record and on stage Matt keeps the music thriving and vivacious. From introspection to full blown rockin' blues, Matt's music is always marked by his adept song writing, sturdy vocals, searing guitar work and his ability to enhance the boundaries of one of music's oldest forms....the blues. He is a performer who never gives less than everything he has each time he takes the stage. After eleven recordings and thirty years of touring from Cape Breton to Vancouver, Europe and across the United States he has earned the respect and loyalty of thousands of devoted fans who love more than just his music ------they love his heart.
His music is described as sassy, witty and fiercely independent with spirit and soul. It has always reflected his life around him and what he is feeling at the time. Nowhere is this more evident than on his latest cd, 'Live at Last', recorded in Sydney, NS, outdoors on a chilly night in September at a festival aptly named 'Minglefest'. It is a Cd charged with the earnest live energy of musicians who rocked night after night throughout the clubs of the North and with the addition of Jeff Healey on guitar and Michael Pickett on harp the band cooks! Laying down the bottom end and giving the band its driving force, is veteran bassist Grant Leslie, drummer Moon McInnis, and a man who can sure tickle the ivories, Jim Ralph.
His song, "Me & The Boys"was recorded by southern-rock legend Charlie Daniels on his CD of the same name. Many major artists (such as Jeff Healy, Jimmie Rankin, Duck Dunn, (Bassist for Eric Clapton, Neil Young and the Blues Brothers), Colin James, ZZ Top, Downchild Blues Band and Grammy award winning Blues harp player Charlie Musselwhite) just to name a few have joined Matt on stage and CD. You never know who may show up to " sit in " on any given night!!
Matt Minglewood is a living legend in the Canadian music scene and his popularity across the country are a testimony to his timeless appeal that transcends all ages and musical boundaries. Ask any Minglewood fan why they keep going back to his shows time and time again ---it's because the band is always cookin' and you can count on a rockin' good time!!!
