description

Matt and Troy have been performing festivals, live music venues and busking around the sate for the past 5 years. Drawing Influence from the early Masters of the Delta Blues and modern Rock and blues artists, Matt and Troy have created their own unique sound. Matt taught himself Bottleneck Slide on Cigar Box Guitars then moved on to Resonator and Lap Steel Guitars. Troy’s passionate and compelling vocals will take you on a musical journey back in time. Playing a mixture of original compositions and covers from 1930’s thru to the modern era, they will leave you wanting more.

audio sample

Excellent artists. Incredible tone and precise slide playing from Matt and the bluesiest vocals from Troy. Their covers of Blind Willie Johnson’s songs are absolutely brilliant. Together they put on a very enjoyable performance of both originals and blues classics. Can’t wait to get them back on the Brett and Col Show!

If you like your blues dark and early thirties these guys will deliver in spades. Playing and singing like it used to be out on the streets and alleyways of early rural America. With beautiful guitar and husky vocals MT Blues are the real thing
