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."
Remarkably 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.
