Matthew Ball is one of Michigan's premier blues and boogie woogie
pianists. With a performance history spanning jazz fests to symphony
appearances throughout the Midwest and Canada, as well as recent appearances
on NPR's All Things Considered and Morning Edition, Matthew
has been described as a "rising giant in the field."
Ball's start in Jjzz only began in 2001 after he attended a hometown boogie
woogie festival. He was so awestruck by the performances he saw that night,
he left his career as an attorney to become a blues and boogie woogie
performing artist. With a lot of time and effort, Ball would reach a
breakthrough in 2005 with a career launching performance at the exclusive
Arches Piano Stage in Cincinnati where he shared the stage with some of the
same musicians that first inspired him to play back in 2001. Today declared
as "a nationally emerging boogie-woogie master," Matthew is helping to
define a new generation's contribution to this treasured American
tradition. For more about him, visit www.boogiewoogiekid.com.
