Here are photo highlights of Matt Mays playing his final concert on his tour with Adam Baldwin at the Imperial on Tuesday November 12th, 2013 in Vancouver.
Opening Act: Adam Baldwin
Best known as keyboard player for Matt Mays, Adam Baldwin has steadily been forging his own path in the Canadian music scene. He is set to release his debut solo album this spring; an ode to all things plaid-shirted and Springsteen-esque. An evocative and engaging songwriter, his subject matter is surprisingly mature given his youth. Adam draws you in with tales so close to home, you feel as if he’s been reading your thoughts…in fact, he probably has.

Matt Mays is on a quest to find and create the music he hears in his head. When he stays still the sound drifts farther away: “when the vibrations stop,” he says “it’s time to move on.” A few years back, Matt left to embark on a journey into open space. To live in the midst of a world where anything could happen. A crusade into the sound, traversing the vast musical divide that he calls home. Mexico, California, Indonesia, Hawaii, Costa Rica, New York. Wherever.
He used surfing, yoga, and a ukulele as tools to bring him closer to the melodies and words different places and experiences inspired. Eventually, the sound was found. As soon as he stepped off the plane in Halifax he started work an album he called Coyote: a proper home for all his experiences. Imagery painted with song. Coyote covers the whole spectrum of the sound that Mays finally found.
