Matthew Basso

Matt Basso has been a Singer/Songwriter for the last 25 years. He started out in a band called 3rd Wish. Since going solo in 1996, he has recorded and performed some folk and blues music. His love for the sound of the blues harp and the intensity of 80's hard rock helped him to create the current sound. Considered Blues-Rock by most, the music has a strong emphasis on vocals and hooks. Musically, he plays slide resonator guitars, bass and his signature Blues harp. His playing is often compared to John Popper and Darrell Mansfield rather than the old time Little Walter sound. The release Get Ready is available at CDbaby.com

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
