Matthew Chaffey: Unknown Legend
Presented by Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe
Matthew Chaffey is a deeply soulful and passionate singer from Ottawa who has toured through Texas and Canada, co-written on JUNO winning and nominated albums, and backed up legendary rhythm and blues artists who have all helped shape his vision and sound. Having a career of over 20 years he has won the Stingray Rising Star award and has co-written songs on JUNO nominated and JUNO winning albums.
This concert will be the official release of his 2023 debut solo album Unknown Legend, which was produced by JUNO-winning Ken Friesen. Having developed his skill as a musician backing up many different American rhythm and blues artists and fronting his own groups playing everything from rock, blues, classic country, soul, and electronic synth pop, Unknown Legend is a return to the direct and emotional sounds of classic soul mixed with pop, groove, and funk with some modern elements.
This album was partially funded by the Canada Council for the Arts.
