Blues Singer-Songwriter Matt Andersen Announces Fall Headlining US Tour

Following numerous sold-out shows in his native Canada, a spring tour with Tab Benoit, and a summer run with Devon Allman and Donavon Frankenreiter, dynamic singer/songwriter Matt Andersen is planning a fall U.S. headline tour, supporting his latest album, The Big Bottle of Joy. A full list of tour dates is below and can be found on Matt’s website HERE. Ahead of the dates, Andersen is releasing a video for “Shoes,” the romantic album closing track about finding balance in a relationship when partners are sadly out of sync. Watch the “Shoes” video HERE. Listen to The Big Bottle Of Joy via DSPs HERE.

Released earlier this year, The Big Bottle of Joy is a collection of 12 exhilarating songs that pulse with blues, rock, Americana, and gospel energy. Andersen’s masterful vocals are at their best, striking the perfect balance of unbridled power and soulful quietness. The album has earned raves for the accomplished musician and lyricist. Accolades include:

On studio release number 10, Andersen delivers a dozen examples of why he is one of the most talented and distinctive singers in his roots-oriented genre.”
American Songwriter

Andersen has delivered as uplifting an album as you’ll likely hear this year or any year…– Glide

“Adding an important chapter to Matt Andersen’s career, The Big Bottle of Joy lives up to its title and delivers a top-notch set drenched in inspired songwriting and heartfelt performances.”
Blues Rock Review

…Matt Andersen is clearly at the top of his game. The Alternate Root

Matt Andersen has earned every one of his fans through years of touring the globe. From small, dimly lit clubs to majestic theaters and major festivals, Andersen delivers soulful performances that run the gamut from intimate to wall-shaking. The bluesman has amassed over 26 million streams on Spotify and well over 26 million views on YouTube and has shared the stage and toured with Marcus King, Beth Hart, Marty Stuart, Greg Allman, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Randy Bachman, and many more. Andersen nabbed the 2013 and 2016 European Blues Awards for Best Solo/Acoustic Act, was the first ever Canadian to take home top honors in the solo category at the 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. The Big Bottle of Joy is Andersen’s 10th studio album and follows 2022’s acclaimed House to House.

Andersen will perform solo on his upcoming fall dates. Fellow Canadian Adam Baldwin will open the shows. Baldwin’s latest album Concertos & Serenades has been widely praised and the single “Lighthouse in Little Lorraine” won the East Coast Music Award for Song of the Year.
