Matthew Robinson


East Austin blues icon Matthew Robinson is a bluesman to the bone with a delivery combining a powerful, outstanding voice with an impressive guitar style. Modest, but uniquely deep, Matthew has that magical touch that thrills you more and more the more you listen. His driving guitar sound is raw and classy, and is often spiced with jazz. Overall, its a purely Texas style, Blues that wasnt learned at schools but through life experience, of which Matthew Robinson has in abundance.

Over his more than 40 year professional experience, Matthew has played in virtually every venue in Austin. During the late sixties, Matthew successfully toured the United States as the singer of The Mustangs, opening up for Jimmy Reed, James Brown, Big Mama Thornton and Johnny Winter. Over the years he has recorded six albums and headlined in the UK, Holland, Brazil and Japan. In 2012 Matthew Robinson received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Austin Blues Society.

With the newly instituted veteran band, The Jelly Kings, providing solid support and drive, Matthew Robinson is at the start of a fresh new journey. Pre-production is underway for a new album of uplifting Texas blues as it should be played. As Matthew so aptly puts it,"Workin' that Jelly!"
