WATERDOWN, ON – Award-winning Canadian soul-bluesman Matt Andersen announces the forthcoming release of Halfway Home by Morning (True North Records), available worldwide on March 22nd.

Produced by JUNO-Award-winner Steve Dawson and recorded “live off-the floor” at Southern Ground Studio in Nashville, Halfway Home by Morning showcases Matt Andersen’s soulfully-powerful vocal pipes in all their glory, backed by a sympathetic band of all-star musicians, plus Amy Helm, who guests on “Something to Lose,” a masterful, Memphis/Muscle Shoals-fueled duet with Andersen.

“A decade’s worth of quality releases and heavy touring have made New Brunswick’s Matt Andersen into one of the nation’s most reliable performers.” – AllMusic

“A powerhouse voice that could pack a football stadium” – The National Post

Unbridled joy springs eternal from Halfway Home by Morning, Andersen’s tenth full-length release. The new disc deftly captures the New Brunswick, Canada native’s long-signature and internationally celebrated sound: sweat-soaked soul meets incendiary rhythm and blues, with full doses of heartsick folk and Americana grit mixed in for good measure.

Much like legends who graced the space before them — Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Jerry Lee Lewis, to name a few — Andersen and the band left everything they had on the floor of Southern Ground studio over the course of recording Halfway Home by Morning’s 13 tracks.

The recording space, too, soon came to feel like home Andersen. The kitchen fulfilled its all-important role as de-facto “war room” for musicians who join on the release, like Steve Dawson, Jay Bellerose, Chris Gestrin, Amy Helm, The McCrary Sisters (Ann, Regina, and Alfreda), Jim Hoke, Charles Rose, and Steve Hermann; and after the day’s work was done, Andersen and bassist Mike Farrington routinely found themselves kicking back, listening to the horn sections and reminiscing about the players they’d shared stages with before.

That home-like feel fed the belly and fueled the fire within Halfway Home by Morning; the release inspires soulful rejuvenation, looking outward at the anxious state of the world and offering a helping hand while, at the same time, searching inward to clarify what really matters.

The result? An album teeming with such warmth and verve, listeners can’t help but keep comrades close and feelin’ right. “There really is nothing like listening back in the studio and everybody has the same smile on their face over what we’re hearing,” Andersen shares. “You can’t fake the vibe of musicians playing together, responding to the choices others are making in that moment.”

Fakery has never been a factor for Matt Andersen. Nearly two decades into his storied career now, Andersen’s room-shaking, heart-quaking voice has won him countless awards, including two European Blues Awards, seven Maple Blues Awards, plus an International Blues Challenge, and a Canadian Independent Music Association nod, not to mention a JUNO Award nomination. His lengthy tenure as Canada’s resident blues-man speaks for itself.

The proof is further in the previous: Honest Man (2016) debuted in the top five on Soundscan for albums in Canada, following Adele, Justin Bieber, Macklemore & Lewis, and The 1975; and its supporting tour sold more than 25,000+ tickets nationwide.

Halfway Home by Morning is the sound of an artist doing was he was born to do — laying his soul bare using the music that can’t help but run through him, and doing it with more jubilation than he ever has before.

Matt Andersen will be appearing at the Folk Alliance International Conference in Montreal:
February 14 – Paquin Agency Showcase
February 15 – Official Paradigm Agency Showcase
