Undiscovered Treasure: Kalle Mattson

I'm participating a day early in Alex J. Cavanaugh's Underrated Treasures Blogfest. I'm early because I've got a guest popping in tomorrow (hope you'll come back and visit for that as well!)


I'd like to talk about Kalle Mattson. He's an amazing young Canadian talent. I came across Kalle's music through a family connection and he's an outstanding young man as well as a talented singer/songwriter. Not only are his songs entertaining, but there's always another layer in there as well.

One of my favourites is Thick as Thieves.



This video Hurt People Hurt People is also awesome!



Hope you enjoyed! If you click on Kalle's website, you can see & hear & learn a whole lot more!

And don't forget to visit Alex tomorrow to find the links to all the other participants.

  6. So true! Hurting people hurt people. Some are open walking wounds wandering aimlessly, looking for anyone they can project their sorrow and misery onto as if this can make themselves feel better.

  7. Really liked the Thick of Thieves video especially when he mentioned Michigan beaches as I'm from Michigan and love the beautiful beaches.

  17. When I used to be in Canada a lot I kept up with Canadian artists. These days I don't keep up with much of any new music. Kalle sounds good, but he's new to me.
