Topic: Mathias Lattin

Well, hot on his success at the International Blues Challenge, time to have a look at who this guy is, and from the bio below, I hope brother Curby is looking in: -

The grandson of NBA Hall Of Fame legend and two-time NCAA All American, David “Big Daddy” Lattin, Mathias Lattin chose to bring his talent to the stage and not the basketball court. Mathias Lattin is an up-and-coming young Texas guitarist and a product of the acclaimed Kinder High School for Performing and Visual Arts. He’s heavily influenced by music legends B.B. King, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Albert Collins, and Wes Montgomery. Mathias’s vast love for music is reflected in the soulful blues, jazz-inflected chords, and funky bass lines.  Trained as a jazz guitarist, he incorporates the knowledge in his playing and songwriting. At only 20 years old, he has shared the stage with the likes of Keeshea Pratt, Annika Chambers, Sarah Grace, and The Peterson Brothers. The Living Blues Magazine's review of his debut EP “Let’s Start Here” determined “…there’s enough promise here to mark him as an artist to watch.” As he paves his way in the Blues, Mathias is on his way to creating his own legacy through his music.

When life gives you lemons; don't make lemonade.
Give back the lemons.  Why were the lemons free?  What's wrong with the lemons?
Do Not trust the lemons...

Re: Mathias Lattin

I've been following the Cinelli Brothers and congrats for finishing second to Mathias.  Memphis has to be on shaky ground with the tragic death of a resident and the demonstrations there growing every day. It makes me sick how dangerous America's once great cities have devolved to.
Mathias Lattin is a breath of fresh air to the stagnancy that my blues has sunk to.  I picked up his new EP and it's a good one.  He possesses that rare hat trick of talent (playing, singing and writing) that's become so difficult to find these days.
I highly recommend giving this guy a listen.
