Bluesy rock 'n' roll troubadour Matt Blais performs a busker set as part of RISE UP! Weekends at Studio Bell.
Matt Blais' career spans a decade of quality releases and dedicated touring. Hailing from Calgary, the charismatic performer plays modern roots-rock with a foundation in candid songwriting. Weaving together heavy blues influences, rock ‘n’ pop hooks, slithering atmospherics, and twangy flourishes—all with his sit-up-and-listen harmonica work and belting vocals—Blais is an artist that fits as comfortably alongside the best of his bluesy roots-rock contemporaries as he does the revolutionaries of Canrock.
