Coming Soon: The Grand Opening of ‘The Soul Food Store’! Matt Pearce & The Mutiny Open Pre-orders for their Brand-New Album & Release a Storming Digital Double A-side Single
Matt Pearce and The Mutiny’s mighty, much-anticipated second album ‘The Soul Food Store’ can now be pre-ordered, and as an entrée a digital double A-side single: ‘All The Gods’ and ‘Beautiful Disguise’ is being released — a tempting sample of the Store’s top quality wares.
“I wanted to put out two very different songs as a preview of the album,” Matt adds, “as it’s intentionally a very varied collection of songs: variety being the spice of life and more besides in The Soul Food Store!
“’All The Gods’ is a psychedelic rocker of a tune, intense and moody; whilst ‘Beautiful Disguise’ is a song I’m very proud of: I wanted the sound of Sixties Soul, complete with lush keyboards and swooning strings, and I think we got that.
“Enjoy these aperitifs ahead of the main course being served on April 29th. Bon appetit!”
‘Gotta Get Home’ kicked off Matt Pearce’s musical mutiny and went to #1 in the Amazon Blues charts. Like its predecessor, ‘The Soul Food Store’ is self-produced and features Matt as lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter, aided and abetted by some of the crème de la crème of the London blues scene.
The 11-track sophomore album will be released on 29th April through Mutinear Records and is filled with rocking blues and funky, soulful grooves: the kind of flavoursome, nourishing sound that Matt adores and set out to create when he first began his musical mutiny — smokin’ hot songs delivered with passion and virtuoso skill.
Reviewers, press and broadcasters have been blown away by this new album.
Guy B. of GREAT MUSIC STORIES awarded ‘The Soul Food Store’ 5/5 and made it Album of the Month: “Imagine Joe Cocker, Santana, Prince, Stevie Wonder and The Beatles having an impromptu late-night jam.

"Never was an album more aptly titled,” says music journalist Steve Swift “… I think this album is gonna be one of the best of the year."
