Unchain the blues at Twin Towns on Saturday night

BLUES musician and frontman of Chain, Matt Taylor, will bring his Blues to Ozblues tour to Twin Towns on October 20 at 7pm EST.

Chain remains the only blues band in the world to have scored a number one and two on Australian charts, for tracks Black n Blue and Judgement, and Taylor's self-taught skills were a notable part of the impressive achievement.

Becoming widely known thanks to Chain's success, Taylor was frontman of the band from 1970 to '71, before taking a break and returning in '73 as a solo artist.

He released three albums over the next three years and scored a major hit with the track I Remember When I Was Young.

Taylor continued to tour extensively and record with various line-ups of Chain and he has also released another two solo albums and toured alone to promote his music ventures.

In May 2010, Matt Taylor was inducted into the WAM Hall of Fame.

American blues guitarist Albert Collins once said of Taylor "You play the blues, but it's like no other blues I've ever heard in my life."

High praise indeed.

Blues to Ozblues not only offers some powerful live music, it also covers Taylor's life story and portrays how Australian blues music, or Ozblues, has developed over the years.

Taylor has been the front man of Chain for more than thirty years and is well known for his unique brand of blues and humour, evident when he is captivating the audience with stories between songs.
