    2011 Blues Music Awards Winner: Matt Hill

    Presented by at Smoken Joe's BBQ

    April 11, 2012


    2011 Blues Music Awards Winner: Matt Hill

    2011 Blues Music Awards Winner and one of the most talked about and electric acts on the scene today. On stage, Hill is uninhibited, driving audiences wild with his “whatever it takes” boundless stage antics. His voice, guitar playing, and magnetic energy surely will take him straight to the top. With each performance, his unbridled raw talent shines through, playing with some of the most notable names on the blues circuit to date. Hill has joined Bob Margolin on tour and has shared the stage, trading licks with legendary Blues performers such as Carey Bell, Hubert Sumlin, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Calvin “Fuzz” Jones, Pinetop Perkins, and Nappy Brown. Somewhere along the line, Matt developed a totally uninhibited, ferociously raving stage presence that harkens back to the heydays of Howlin’ Wolf, Jerry Lee Lewis and Nappy Brown. In September 2010 the Vizztone Label Group released Matt’s debut album ON THE FLOOR which received great reviews and in May 2011 won the award for Best New Artist Debut at the Blues Music Awards (formally the W.C. Handy Awards) in Memphis TN. In addition, Matt was also nominated for two awards at the Blues Blast Awards in Chicago IL. “Best New Artist Debut” and the “Sean Costello Rising Star Award.”
