With a sound that seamlessly blends folk-rock and modern soul, there’s something for every music fan to love about singer/songwriter Matt Zaddy. But what’s immediately apparent on his new album Be (due out Nov. 2019) is a sophistication that dramatically builds on the success of his 2015 debut EP, Perfect Moments.
As someone who has shared stages with a diverse array of artists including K’Naan, pop star Francesco Yates, CanRock legends Tom Cochrane and Jim Cuddy, and Australian alt-rockers Atlas Genius, Matt Zaddy’s intention is to connect with as many listeners as possible, regardless of any genre restrictions. His next release, Be, comes possesses everything to achieve that goal in a big way, to place Matt Zaddy squarely in the conversation about Canada’s most promising singer/songwriters.
