Matt Pearce and the Mutiny
Matt Pearce & The Mutiny is the new funky-blues-rock ‘solo’ project from the longtime guitarist of U.K. rockers Voodoo Six.
Matt’s forthcoming self-produced album ‘Gotta Get Home’ features him on lead vocals, guitar and all songwriting duties, alongside the cream of the London blues scene, and was mixed by his V6 bandmate Tony Newton, who produced Iron Maiden’s most recent live release, The Book of Souls.
The album features the full range of Matt’s influences, rock, blues, funk and soul, described by one listener as ‘Prince playing Black Crowes songs, or vice versa...’
Or as Matt described it, “it’s a Funky Souladelic Blues Rock Jam Thing...”
He is currently part way through a series of live dates including the prestigious HRH Blues and WinterStorm festivals and a week in Russia at the British Blues Invasion event, ahead of the album’s forthcoming release.
More About Matt...
When Glasgow-born Matt moved to London he joined the Tracie Hunter Band, featuring the daughter of Mott The Hoople legend Ian. He then replaced ex Alice Cooper and Almighty guitarist Pete Freisen in long running London rock collective Metalworks, playing alongside his then Voodoo Six bandmate Richie Faulkner, now of course in the mighty Judas Priest.
V6 have released 5 albums, the most recent recorded in LA at Steve Vai’s Mothership Studios, they played to half a million people as main support on Iron Maiden’s epic 2013 European Tour, and toured with UFO and The Winery Dogs at the personal invitation of Phil Mogg and Mike Portnoy.
Matt has also recently been recreating the guitar work of Lindsey Buckingham and Mike Campbell in a very successful Fleetwood Mac/Tom Petty tribute show, and played at the 2017 Polish Drum Festival as a power trio with Russell Gilbrook and Davey Rimmer of Uriah Heep.
