Bio

A little bit blues - a little bit funk - a whole lot of groove, the Matt Borg Trio are a musically energetic band that sound bigger than their 3 piece size would have you expect.

“The Matt Borg Trio take the blues and inject it with funk and soul. This is Blues for the 21st century. Get on it now!”
Barry Maxwell, Blues on The Hill radio / International Judge, International Blues Challenge

Lead by the vocals and old school driving Blues axe of Matt Borg, he pushes the boundaries of what it means to be a Blues guitarist. His lyrics can take the listener on a journey that is reminiscent of the Blues masters, whilst maintaining a new school edge and with current , relevant stories to tell. The rhythm section of the Trio most certainly does not take a back seat, with deep funk grooves, rock enthusiasm and roots in the R&B masters of old, Micky D’s basslines work in perfectly with the old school Blues of Matt and solid, driving pulse of Andy on the drums.

The sound that comes out of the cacophony of styles, variations and feels is an eclectic, heavy Blues with major sonic influences of the funk, soul and classic R & B bands of old.

"Great guitar work, great vocals. Nice and crunchy...well put together and balanced. Loved it."
Mark at the Glass Onion Radio, Greenville, South Carolina
