Our guest is Matt Layzell from The Matinee.
They have released a new album Change of Scene
They’ve been friends making music for 15 years. This feels like the album that pays off all the hard work.
Produced by Steve Dawson who brought with him into the studio Allison Russell and The McCrary Sisters.
Two-time ‘Roots Artist of the Year’ winners at the BCCMA awards, The Matinee have established themselves as one of Western Canada’s finest live acts. Four albums later, and with countless tours under their belts (and 5 tour vans… 1 caught on fire but that’s another story), the band has matured their sound and honed their live show and is set to release their latest effort, which was recorded live off the floor at fabled Armoury Studios in their hometown Vancouver. The album was produced by Nashville’s own Steve Dawson and features a guest performance by 3-time Grammy nominee Allison Russell. Always leaving their hearts and buckets of sweat on stage, and with comparisons to Nathaniel Rateliff, The Band, and Dawes, it’s once again showtime for The Matinee
