MATT BLAIS – Vocals/ Guitar/ Harmonica
With every note and word, Matt Blais stands out as a spirited and hardworking musician. His signature raspy vocals and blistering blues harmonica are the unique cornerstones of a high energy live show that has captivated audiences across Canada and in countries around the world.
This award winning songwriter and performer creates a stylized union of emotionally influential genres: blues, folk, rock and soul, to intensely express the simple struggles and triumphs of today.
The charismatic Blais seems at home both on stage, with countless tours, festivals and performances, and in the studio where his albums have received critical acclaim, independently sold thousands of copies leading to collaborations with Sam Roberts and producers David Bottrill and Mark Howard.
With a drive to create and a refusal to stop, the potential of Canadian troubadour Matt Blais is limitless.
“Firmly rooted in many of the genres that Matt Blais incorporates into his music, his raspy yet refined vocals point each song in the direction it was originally intended.” – Phylicia Tran – Spun – The Gauntlet

~ February 26, 2013 The Heartbeat
“Rock ‘n roll singer/songwriter Matt Blais comes with more of a sprint than a jog on new single “Running”. It is catchy and energetic, and Blais’ raspy voice is a tad reminiscent of Matthew Good. This certainly whets the appetite for his new album, The Heartbeat, coming in February.” – Kerry Doole, newcanadianmusic.ca
“Matt’s uncanny ability to combine different elements of music is sorely missed in the ever growing pool of musical artists, but presents listeners with a breath of fresh air for the better. In any case, Matt Blais is an artist to keep a watchful eye on because it’s music like his that breathes new life into an industry that needs revitalized with emotional content.” – Kyle Chambers, Emurg
