Matt Blais isn’t trying to reinvent the wheel; he is just finding a new way to roll it.

Today, emotional music seems to be an art form that has gone the way of an ancient cave drawing. It still exists, but you have to know where to look.

A cutting edge artist, Matt Blais combines elements of fiery rock and roll with smooth vintage soul and a dash of the blues to form a sound so uniquely his own that one can’t help but become emotionally charged. The combination of a high energy live show and a passion for song writing is Blais’ formula for success.

He has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with The Watchmen, The Great Bloomers, and K-OS.

With constant performances and the release of his second full length album, The Heartbeat, and critical acclaim rolling in for this self-produced release, the coming year is going to be a busy and successful one.

Matt Blais is making his mark as a professional musician on the rise in Canada and with passion, performance and hard work, you can be sure he’s heading in the right direction.

Golden is his first stop on a Western Canadian tour.

“I’ve missed being on the road. I like to think of myself as a musical troubadour, or some kind of old school minstrel. The road is my home, especially the Canadian road. I don’t think there is a better time to tour Canada than in the fall so I’m excited to take my music to any city that will have me,” said Blais.
