Matt Good comes to Alix Goolden

Canadian singer/songwriter Matthew Good comes to town Feb. 11 in support of his seventh studio album Chaotic Neutral.

Matthew Good has come to the realization that he’s a survivor.

“It’s like having been at war for a long time. There have been some near misses but I feel like I’ve been lucky not to get shot in the head.” Good said. “Not that you remember any of it. It’s just a big blur.”

Understandable, really.

In the early 1990s he formed the Matthew Good Band, which would go on to win two Juno Awards for the Canadian rock classic, Beautiful Midnight before disbanding in 2002. Since 2003, Good has been on his own through seven solo albums; works that have emerged as the bullets continued to fly around him.

There were his missed diagnoses and hospitalizations, his return to indie status, not to mention a change in the music industry.

Despite all this, he’s still here—and he’s not going anywhere. Not if he has anything to say about it.

Chaotic Neutral is his seventh album, and his first with Warner Music.

He handed over the reins to his long-time producer Warne Livesey and brought in a handful of notables including Holly McNarland, Bones Hillman (Midnight Oil), Blake Manning, Anthony Wright, Stu Cameron and Sam Goldberg Jr. (Broken Social Scene).
