Matt Morson may come from a small rural town in Ontario, but his talent is huge. We first met Matt in Sudbury at Feast Fest, and we knew we had to find out more about this up & coming artist. He released a video for “Girl on the Bar” back in June, so be sure to check that out below along with this segment of Five Questions With! Enjoy!
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Matt Morson and I am a country music singer and songwriter. I’ve been playing guitar and writing music most of my life.
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I would have to say my writing style is a solid mix of traditional country, and outlaw country, with a pinch of rock influence in my opinion! As a result, my music reflects those characteristics.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I have a ton of upcoming shows and they’re listed on my website mattmorson.com. You can also find shows on my social media outlets (pardon the photos of my dog).
My live shows are interactive and I love getting the crowd involved. I use that energy to deliver a passionate performance to the crowd.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
“Wanted man”. Right now, it’s my favorite song and I’m looking forward to sharing the video with you.
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
How long can I make this list?! There is so much talent in Canada, it’s hard to narrow it down. I’d say my favorite Canadian artists range from the Tragically Hip to Lindi Ortega. However, if I had to single out one artist that’s on rotation on my personal playlist, I’d say Meghan Patrick. She personifies country music in my opinion!
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
