The UAA Concert Board is proud to present Mat Kearney, Tuesday Feb. 26, 2013 at 7:30 PM in the Williamson Auditorium as part of UAA Winterfest.
Anchorage singer/songwriter Anna Lynch, who recently won the Alaska Song of the Year Contest in the bluegrass category, is opening. Listen to her at AnnaLynchMusic.com.
Kearney's music has been featured on Grey's Anatomy, The Hills, Friday Night Lights, Scrubs, NCIS, and numerous other television shows, he has toured beside John Mayer, Sheryl Crow, Keane, and The Fray, and his most recent album, 2011's Young Love, peaked at number 1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums. Looking to continue the evolution of his sound on his newest album, Kearney incorporated hip-hop grooves into his lyrically charged folk-pop songs. Kearney said of the album, "There's a sense of joy, honesty, vulnerability, and wisdom in this record. I've experienced pain, but I still want to feel like that high school kid with butterflies in his stomach who loves life and has hope."
