Matthew de Zoete live at the Heart of the Hammer

07/21/2011

Matthew de Zoete (‘duh-ZOO-tuh’) plays tonight at the Heart of the Hammer Cafe.

A singularly talented and all-around stand-up guy, Matthew de Zoete is helping pop-rock recover its lost sense of dignity and self-worth. The 29-year-old from Hamilton, Ontario, approaches his craft much like an Old World artisan, applying a loving hand to songs whose melodic invention and attention to detail consistently catch the listener off guard.

Matthew started writing and performing music in his teens, under the spell of timeless ’60s combos like The Beatles and The Who. A demo of original material came several years later, some of which was reworked for his 2006 debut, Across the Sea. 2008′s Bottom of the World meets and exceeds those standards. Produced by Dave King and recorded mostly live off the floor, Matthew and crew capture in the studio all the spontaneity and joy of their best live shows; their familiarity with and affection for the material is very much apparent.
