Very few artists wield so much charisma that they can sell you just about anything before you’ve realised what’s happened. Matt Joe Gow has the charisma to be one of those artists – but he isn’t.
Having performed around Australia from The Sydney Opera House to The Queenscliff Festival Blue Train, Matt prefers to concentrate on the conviction. You don’t have to listen to more than thirty seconds of Matt’s debut ‘The Messenger’ to appreciate that. And that voice. Rich, resonant. A baritone cloak of many shades and shadows. A songwriter whose swagger has taken him from the dusty influences of Johnny Cash, Ryan Adams and others, to the swirling urban chime of electric, ambient rock . . . and now, back again.
Matt Joe Gow returns with his 6 piece band in tow to play songs from his latest album ‘Seven Years’. A diverse set of songs from heartfelt americana belters through to spacious ballads. ‘Seven Years’ contains seven years worth of Matt Joe Gow’s finest work, alongside guests The Weeping Willows, this is a performance not to be missed.
