The Franklin Electric front man Jon Matte is a renowned songwriter. Next to singing and playing keys Jon also plays the trumpet, which might actually be the band’s secret weapon. It gives the music an edge that makes it set apart from the pack.
This Canadian act broke through in 2015 in their own country with the song “This Is How I Let You Down”, the title song and single of their first album. Recently their second album “Blue Ceilings” came out. You can hear both passion and restlessness in Matte’s compositions. The lyrics deal with obsessions and of course with love. Recommended to fans of Half Moon Run, Leif Vollebekk and The Barr Brothers.
