Matthew Good in concert in Mission on Friday at Clarke Theatre

Matt Good is an internationally- acclaimed artist.

The phrase “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” doesn’t apply to Matthew Good.

Over his almost two-decade career, Good has continually pushed forward into uncharted territories, mapping new musical landscapes.

His newest release, Lights Of Endangered Species, takes Good into the unfamiliar, displaying arrangements that are a distinct departure from the likes of Born Losers and Last Parade.

Stark and passionate best describe his latest effort, and despite its differences the record still resonates with his fans.

Matthew Good formed the Canadian alternative rock band of the same name that existed from 1993 to 2002.

It became one of Canada’s most successful rock bands of the ‘90s, nominated for a Juno Award in 1998 for Best New Group and winning the award for Group of the Year in 2000.

The band dissolved in 2002 but Good pursued a successful solo career having released, Avalanche (2003), White Light Rock & Roll Review (2004), In a Coma (2005), Hospital Music (2007) and Vancouver (2009).

Good was born in Burnaby, grew up in Coquitlam, and has lived in various suburbs of Vancouver throughout his life. He played Abbotsford two years ago.

Joining Good on a 37-date, cross-Canada tour this fall is Vancouver’s Daniel Wesley.

Wesley is promoting his fifth studio album, Easy Livin’ (604 Records/Universal Music). Good and Wesley play live at the Clarke Theatre in Mission, at 33700 Prentis Ave., tomorrow (Friday), Nov. 25.

Tickets are available for $42.50 at all Ticketmaster locations, by phone 1-885-985-5000 or online at www.ticketmaster.ca.
