Matt Taylor's personal journey
A few years back Matt recorded the From The Wilderness CD. He never released it properly just selling a few copies on his website. He’s now rerecorded six of the tracks 'old school'. Old school recording puts the song first performance second and production third.
For much of his life Matt’s tried to redefine Blues to suit the Australian environment. On his 2 tours supporting Muddy Waters, he started by wanting to play Blues as good as 'The Mud' then decided he should play his music as well as Muddy played his. If at different times the music doesn’t sound pristine and overproduced or very American then that’s how he likes it. This is human music warts and all.
