Earia Music Project’s foundation is a three-piece acoustic, folk, roots, and Americana duo featuring Matthew Landry (guitar/vocals) and Sal Mattar (percussion) often performing with James Miller (keys). A live performance may also include bass, saxophone, cello or even violin. Matthews’ voice and style demand your attention whilst Mattar adds a worldly and unique touch and a warm change from typical snare-kick-tom drum kit sound.
With soulful lyrics and skillful musicianship, they have already made a mark in the local music scene as they share their original songs about life, love, connection and world events. Their energetic and mesmerizing live performances, their undeniable chemistry and genuine love for music are palpable on stage, captivating audiences and leaving long lasting impressions. It’s no surprise that soon after forming in 2022, they won North Vancouver’s Shipyards Got Talent and have since begun working on their debut album scheduled for release in 2024.
