Now having seven nominations in the prestigious Independent Blues Awards in the USA and three Number One Australian Blues albums, this is band you don’t want to miss.
Perth’s own Drum Legend, Ric Whittle is on the beats and joining him is the fiercely talented Leigh Miller on bass. And it is this rhythm section in particular, the most successful rhythm section of the iconic Perth band Vdelli, which backs up a one Matty T Wall on vocals and guitar.
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
