In support of the highly anticipated release of his seventh solo album, Matthew Good announces the Chaotic Neutral Tour with dates across the country this fall, including the National Arts Centre – Southam Hall on Thursday November 26th!. Special guest, Scott Helman will perform as support on all dates. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 11 at 10am.

In his two decades defining the landscape of the Canadian music scene, Matthew Good has sold nearly a million albums, has been nominated for 20 Juno Awards, winning 4, and is on his way to becoming the best-selling Canadian indie artist of all time. In the early 90s, Matt formed the Matthew Good Band, which would go on to net two Juno Awards for the Canadian rock classic, Beautiful Midnight before disbanding in 2002. Since 2003, Matt has been on his own through seven solo albums, surviving missed diagnoses and hospitalizations, a return to indie status, and a sea change in the music industry.

Chaotic Neutral, scheduled for release on September 25, is available now for pre-order digitally through iTunes and on CD and vinyl through matthewgood.org. On this album Matt handed over the reins to his long-time producer Warne Livesey. He also brought in a handful of notables including Holly McNarland, Bones Hillman (Midnight Oil), Blake Manning, Anthony Wright, Stu Cameron and Sam Goldberg Jr. (Broken Social Scene). Matt explains "The process for this one was great. I got to say, 'I'm just going to be the artist on this thing,' which I found massively liberating."
Craig Stickland
With his own brand of lyric-¬driven indie rock, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Craig Stickland is an artist with a lot of stories to tell.

Inspired by stories about human behaviour, each song reveals the ways in which love, sadness & power are all interconnected. Craig's stints as a Toronto bartender, actor and model have all influenced his musical journey in their own ways, contributing to his understanding of people and his ability to capture human emotion and reflect it in words and songs.

With his debut EP 'Leave Me To The Wild,' Craig has enlisted the help of Juno-nominated producer James Robertson (Esthero, Down With Webster) for this 8-track body of work. "I feel like a lot of people will relate to the music, to these feelings and emotions that I write about that many of us experience. Each song I write is different and I want people to make their own interpretations. That's the great thing about music."

The EP's lead single, "Liquor Store Blues," is a midtempo alternative rock song with tongue-in-cheek lyrics. "I know you're confused, but lately so am I. I've got those liquor store blues, blurring my mind," he sings of his hazy recollection of a night in New York City. 'Leave Me To The Wild' offers a variety of love songs driven by raw vocals and poetic lyrics. The Craig Stickland sound lies within the vein of contemporaries like James Bay and Ed Sheeran, and also reflects his earliest influences including The Eagles and Coldplay.

This seasoned indie rock artist has toured across North America with acts like Alessia Cara, Kat Dahlia and Fefe Dobson. With a pure music sensibility, Craig Stickland is poised to make a breakthrough in 2016.
