Mattie Leon Backroad Medicine Release Tour at LIVE! on Elgin
Mattie Leon is a singer/songwriter hailing from Hamilton. A craftsman on guitar and piano, Mattie refuses to leave the past behind. His sensibilities are informed by the songwriting of the sixties and seventies. His voice, whether soaring or soulful, is his own. The result is a fresh take on a classic form; familiar but unmistakably new.
Mattie is no stranger to the road. He's brought his music to stages across Canada, from the Atlantic to Pacific coasts. At his side is Mike Leon, Mattie's drummer and longtime collaborator. Together, they've become a captivating example of the unique thing that happens when siblings share the stage.
For his latest album Mattie enlisted the help of acclaimed Canadian producer, Mark Howard. Recorded during the last gasps of winter in March 2022, Mattie, Mike and longtime bassist, Nelson Sobral did things the old fashioned way; recording everything together in the same room. The result is ‘Backroad Medicine’, out March 2023 on Castlemore Records
basement.apt is Toronto’s freshest alt-rock band tearing slices off of Arkells, Joel Plaskett, and Weezer to come up with their own wave of catchy tunes that make you wanna dance your pants off. They are primarily composed of Toronto’s Trevor Dubois, a veteran of the local scene who was on CTV’s The Launch, and Ottawa’s Kyle Ivanich who, under the name Kyle Ivan, opened for the Backstreet Boys on the Ottawa Bluesfest main stage. The two of them have set up a roaring 5- piece band to help you get in touch with your rock n’ roll side again.
