Matty has been getting praise from all around the world for his mix of blues and metal guitar playing, bringing a welcome edge to the standard blues-rock vibe, to take it into the future.
“Matty T Wall, an extraordinary blues-rock guitar player, singer, songwriter. Echoes & elements of rock from the 60’s, but Wall’s voice hurls it into the 21stcentury, his dazzling guitar licks and solos not of this world. Wall is entitled to a little swagger—he has the chops to pull it off. Extraordinary guitar player. Jazz flavors, soul. Gritty blues-rock, rock & roll, with outstanding musicianship.” – Martine Ehrenclou, Rock and Blues Muse, Los Angeles USA, Sept 2018
“There were goosebumps, then tears. Gifted electric guitar play will do that to me”- Blue Monday, USA
“some of the best guitar playing in one place you might hear all year” – DownAtTheCrossroads
Named for the mighty Blackwood River in their home town of Bridgetown, and inspired by its floods, Blackwood Rising are a happy go lucky blues duo who play a raucous mix of originals and bluesy covers. Fingerpicked tunes with bottleneck slide, various guitar tunings, an octave pedal, a double snare drum kit and an aversion to too much technology pretty much sums them up. Blackwood Rising is primarily a vehicle for its two members to immerse themselves in a tribute to the blues sounds that have been in existence for far, far longer. These sounds are dredged up and thumped into a shape that will prove to be a point of difference in the current blues and roots landscape – a landmark that might come in handy amongst so much uniformity.
Stumptown is a four piece Jump Blues band. We deliver the blues the only way we know how; raw, emotional, solid and with a ton of passion.
