MATHIAS LATTIN - UP NEXT
AVAILABLE 10/27/23

IBC WINNER COMES OUT STRONG WITH NEW VIZZTONE ALBUM, 1ST SINGLE, AND KILLER TOUR SCHEDULE.

MATHIAS LATTIN / UP NEXT (10/27/23)

Quickly emerging young Texas

 musician Mathias Lattin won 1st place at the 2023 International Blues Challenge in the band category and the Best Guitarist Award at 20

 years old. The excitement is spreading rapidly.

A graduate of the acclaimed Kinder High School for Performing and Visual Arts magnet program, Mathias was offered a scholarship at Boston's Berklee College of Music – but the Pandemic quickly scrapped those plans. Mathias came up quickly in the Houston scene, playing Jonn Del Toro Richardson’s blues jams when he was 13, and later joining Keeshea Pratt’s band. Houstonians like Annika Chambers and Shawn Allen served as mentors and inspiration. His training as a jazz quitarist is reflected in his soulful blues, jazz-inflected chords, and funky bass lines. Mathias wrote and produced all the songs on UP NEXT.

In a recent Living Blues article, Lattin expresses his feeling for the awesome power of music: "Music has literally been able to save people's lives. The stories that it can tell, the emotions that it can communicate, it's a powerful thing. It makes us move, It makes us feel. It makes us—for lack of a better term—human. And without that, this world would be a whole different place, a different experience. Without that, it would all be less human, more mechanical."

This Fall Mathias and his band are hitting the road hard in support of the new record. He recently joined Joe Bonamassa's Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea Cruise as a special guest of Christone "Kingfish" Ingram, performed at the Big Blues Bender in Las Vegas, and he's psyched for the Telluride Festial and the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise.

ABOUT THE SINGLE

"Lose Some Weight" drops September 15

The first single from the album, dropping September 15, is “Lose Some Weight,” a driving funky blues with a twist, a diet plan that no girlfriend wants to hear: “Your loving tastes so good / So good I just can’t breathe / I need to lose some weight / So I guess you’ve gotta leave.” Yes, Mathias’s lyrics are as sharp-edged as his guitar playing.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT MATHIAS LATTIN:

“It's good to see Mathias getting out there as a solo artist, he's a very talented young man and we definitely need more soldiers to help keep the Blues striving!”
