Mr. Matthew James is a new roots blues artist from Toronto, Canada. Equipped with resonators, finger picks, stomp boxes and harmonicas, this 21-year old musician found his voice in music closing in on a century old.
Worried Blue is "a mix of originals and covers of traditional country blues tunes. While the sounds may be from the 1920s, the emotions expressed are very much part of the vocabulary of today’s youth anxious about tomorrow’s world." - Will McGuirk, Durham Region news
James says of playing music: “Sound for me evokes emotion and it is the emotion that is evoked from the slide guitar that does it for me, .... It’s almost as if, with the slide, with a lot of blues, the guitar does the talking.”
