This summer, Matt Mays brings From Burnside with Love exclusively to Qello Concerts by Stingray. This fantastic concert film, recorded with a live audience, spans Matt’s whole career and includes hits like “Cocaine Cowgirl,” “Tall Trees,” and “Take It On Faith.”

Matt Mays has established a global following over the past two decades since he left the seminal alt-country group The Guthries and embarked on a solo career. Working on his own and with his band El Torpedo, Matt has created a collection of unforgettable songs and won accolades and fans worldwide. In 2012, Matt released the album Coyote, which won a Juno Award for Rock Album of the Year.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, Matt gathered a small audience of fans in a studio in the Burnside district of his hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia, for an intimate semi-acoustic evening. The result is From Burnside With Love, a 22-song concert video and live album.

The 102-minute production is a must-watch for those who have followed Matt’s career as well as brand new fans. Those who know and love Matt’s music will find new interpretations of his classic songs, giving a fresh perspective to his catalog. And for those just discovering Matt Mays, From Burnside With Love will take you on a musical journey filled with joy, pain, angst, and energy.
