Canadian Matt Andersen’s “Ain’t No Sunshine” [Video]
When I turn on the Polyester Power Hour, I enjoy the music that CJ plays. It always seems, though, that I am waiting for “Ain’t No Sunshine” to play; I just LOVE that song. Sometimes he plays it, sometimes not – that’s just how it is with the PPH: CJ keeps it ‘fresh’.
This morning, on my normal walk through the internet, I came across Matt Andersen’s version of “Ain’t No Sunshine”, performed in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, at the Pearl Theatre. Never having heard of Matt Andersen, I looked him up BEFORE I played the video: His career started in 2002, and since then he has gone on to play hundreds of live performances and win numerous talent contests and music awards, including the Memphis International Blues Challenge.
If you are a fan of musicians with a passion for their instruments and their art, then this video should move you.
After I watched his performance of “Ain’t No Sunshine”, I decided to see if I would like his ‘other’ stuff; the very next video I found was his “So Gone Now”. I am “So Hooked Now”, on the beautiful sound and soul of Matt Andersen.
