“Matina Z is going to save rock'n'roll. You heard it from me first, people. :) This girl can rock and you'd better take the opportunity to see her live in such an intimate location before she starts filling venues that are way out of your price range. You owe it to yourself to hear good music, and if you love rock'n'roll, you need to check this out. Every so often, we come across an artist that has not only talent, but integrity.

And you can catch all of that this weekend, July 27, 2013, in Aurora, Ontario. More about that in a little while. :) ”

I'm a sucker for rock'n'roll so I tend to gravitate towards artists that are capable of bringing a crowd to their feet with a heavy guitar sound and the bass of a kick drum. Matina Z and her band did not disappoint. I featured a Q & A with Matina prior to her concert, and when I got to Town Park she graciously thanked me for the write-up. Polite rock stars. Gotta love it. Matina mentioned in her interview that she's a big Dave Grohl fan. He would have been proud on Saturday night knowing that the moment he decided to hang around in a garage in”
““That just motivated me and showed my hard work and dedication is paying off, and it inspired me to continue my journey,” she says. “Most of my ideas come from what I see going on around me and I have a great group of friends. We always talk and we’ll always tell a story, and someone immediately says, ‘Yeah, you’ve got to write a song about this!’” Thankfully, she adds, they are usually pleased with the results! “When I put a song out there, my main goal is to put it out to as many people as I can because even if it just touches one person, I feel like I have done my job,” she says. “I get a great joy from it and I just want to get to as many people as possible. When I perform, I see people are having a great time and I love it when they come up to me and say my songs are songs they can actually relate to. It shows they are listening to the lyrics and paying attention to it.” Her ultimate goal? When asked, she replies evolution as an artist but when prodded a li”
