A powerhouse performer with a giant, soul-filled voice and commanding stage presence, New Brunswick’s Matt Andersen has built a formidable following the old fashioned way: touring worldwide (with the likes of Steve Miller and Amy Helm) and letting his stunned audiences and new devotees spread the good word of his righteous tunes all over.
On Matt’s 10th album, Halfway Home by Morning, he explores every facet of his sound; sweat-soaked soul, incendiary rhythm and blues, heartbroken folk and gritty Americana.

Unbridled joy springs eternal from Halfway Home by Morning. Recorded live off the floor in Nashville, Tennessee, celebrated songwriter Matt Andersen’s tenth album collects all the essential elements for a down-home ramble and shoots them through with enough electrifying energy to drive the rock ‘n’ roll faithful to simmer, shimmy, and shake. Over its lucky 13 tracks, he explores every facet of his sound—sweat-soaked soul, incendiary rhythm and blues, heartbroken folk, and gritty Americana—and binds them together with palpable heart, as the band leaves everything they’ve got on the sweet old hardwood of the Southern Ground studio, in the same spot that legends like Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Jerry Lee Lewis turned up the volume ‘til it couldn’t go up anymore.
