LCCC Presents: 
Matt Andersen

With special guest Mariel Buckley

Friday, Feb. 3 at 7 pm

When Matt Andersen steps on stage, he brings a lifetime of music to every note he plays. His presence is informed by decades of cutting his teeth in dusty clubs, dim-lit bars, and grand theatres all over the world, delivering soulful performances that run the gamut from intimate to wall-shaking. In the studio, he’s always brought the same attention to detail and commitment to craft as he has to his live show, and the result - a multifaceted and poignant body of work - has led him to amass over 23 million streams on Spotify and 26 million views on YouTube. With special guest Mariel Buckley.
