Hi Krissy !! It’s a great pleasure to have you as our guest on vocespettacolo.com. Lets’ start from the first question.. Let’s have a jump into the past. What was your dream since when you were a kid? What would you like to do?
My dream has always been to be a successful musician. Whether that means selling out stadiums, or selling out small venues, I have always wanted to make a good living out of performing. I want people to love my music, and affect their life in some way.
Can you tell us a little about yourself? Who is Krissy Matthews?
Krissy Matthews is currently a 23 year old guitarist/vocalist touring through Europe performing his music, working as hard as he can, to try and get to the top of the ladder. He is also trying to inject some life into the current global blues scene.
When did you start playing the guitar?…and why?
I started playing at the age of 8. I grew up, watching my father play guitar in clubs since the age of 2, and I always wanted to be like him.
What’s the most suitable musical style to Krissy Matthews?
Punk Country Rock Blues.
A strong and a weak point of Krissy Matthews?
I have always been confident with my guitar playing. Where I don’t have confidence, is singing, and it has affected my live and studio performances. Recently, it has got a lot better, but I still have a long way to go.
What’s the best and worst aspect of your job?
The best part is getting paid to travel this world and play music for all kinds of people in all kinds of cultures. The worst part, is it isn’t a guaranteed wage, and it’s not a lot, making it hard to plan your life in terms of buying a house etc. There is also a lot of bands making music out there, which makes it harder to get to the top.
What are your best satisfactions you had in your life and career?
For me, my two biggest moments were meeting and hanging out with BB King when I was 14, and performing with Jeff Healey when I was 15. I played with Jeff Healey on his last two songs ever performed live in the UK, and I will forever be grateful.
How much of Krissy there’s in the work you carry out?
I like to think, there is always elements of Krissy in whatever I do!
The song you’d never forget?
Apache. The Shadows.
Any projects for the future?
To keep on keeping on, not give up, and work as hard as possible in order to achieve as much success as I can.
Thanks a lot Krissy for your time. Voce Spettacolo wishes you the best for your life and career.
