Acoustic blues and folk artist Matt Woosey is touring his new album, Wildest Dreams, which was released on Monday, November 3.

The versatile songwriter is playing the Uckfield Civic Centre with Red Butler, on Friday, November 14 (8pm).

Matt’s new album is similar to his previous material in that it contains a certain number of blues and blues influenced songs.

However, the overall spectrum of his song writing is broader and more mature than before. Ranging from ethereal folk to Pink Floyd-esque vibes and from Rumours-era Fleetwood Mac to full-on blues riffage, Wildest Dreams aims to take Woosey fans and new listeners alike on a journey through the man’s soul and musical heritage.

Wildest Dreams was recorded at Monnow Valley studios in Monmouthshire.

Matt said: “It was such a joy to be part of. I think we managed to capture a great atmosphere during those days in the studio. The songs have come to life and it is a record I’m immensely proud of.”

Tickets cost £8 in advance from www.uckfieldciviccentre.com or www.wegottickets.com/event/294102.
