Matt Blais comments:
“I love life on the road. I’m really looking forward to just getting in the van, meeting new people and seeing new things. I’ve got a great group of guys in the band who are fun to play with on stage and party with after. So I know that we, and all the audiences are gonna have a blast. Canada is such a huge country. I never realized that until planning a tour from one end to the other, so, this is a huge undertaking for any band. But, I’ve always believed in the hard work, grass roots, live music approach to building a fan base, so, I’m really excited.”
With the first single ‘Running’ hitting the airwaves and iPods across Canada, Matt is gaining comparisons to artists such as Sam Roberts, Matt Mays and Joel Plaskett.
Featuring ten emotionally charged tracks fueled by fiery rock and roll with smooth vintage soul. The combination of Blais’ passion for song writing and high energy spectacles is why critics and audiences continue to grow in number with every step forward he takes.
