"Matt Blais wins the 2017 Singer/Songwriter Award
at the YYC Music Awards"

The 2017 YYC Music Awards were a huge success! Not just for me but also for the city and the scene. I'm proud to be from Calgary and a part of this community. I treasure this award greatly.

I'd like to take this time to thank everyone who has ever come to see me perform, bought or streamed a song or video, booked me for a show, or supported me in any way. Thanks also to Brian Moncarz who produced "Set Me Free" and all the different musicians I've performed with over the years.  I am a very lucky guy!

     

 

------------

I am very happy to report that I have received a whopping four nominations for the 2017 YYC Music Awards! These include Male Artist of the Year, Singer/Songwriter of the Year, Roots/Folk Recording, and Music Video of the Year. 

I personally want to thank everyone who has supported me for all these years. It's truly an honour to be included with such amazing artists. Congrats to all the nominees and to the Calgary scene for continuing to support each other and grow our community.

Sometime we all feel like we've just "got to get away" and search for something better. That was the inspiration for the song "Running." See that story played out in the brand new video for the rockin' tune right HERE .
