Burnside Album Details
Stubbs, Matthew, Medford & Main
Matthew Stubbs is a poet. But this 2009 Blues Audience Magazine Award Winner for "Outstanding Guitarist" and "2009 Boston Music Award Nominee for "Best Blues Act" uses a guitar instead of a pen. So notes Dennis Brennan in his reflections on the new Blue Bella release, Medford & Main. "Matt's thing on this recording is soul and blues-based guitar instrumentals. Like all the greats-Booker T. & the MGs, Freddie King and Stuff-the music connects with this listener in a primal way. I want to dance. I want to sing, and I want to make up my own words." As a bandleader and composer, Stubbs has earned himself a reputation for his ability to write tremendously catchy music. The songs that he composes are a cocktail of Memphis Soul, Blues, R&B, Surf, Rock n' Roll and Groove, all perfectly mixed together. Matthew also tours the world as part of the Charlie Musselwhite Band.
