A musician with local ties that was on the national spotlight more than a decade ago is back to his musical roots. Eli Mattson, who performed and finished second on the TV show America’s Got Talent in 2008, just recorded a new album and has an upcoming concert planned in Sturgeon Bay next month. Having not performed the last five years due to health issues, Mattson, who now lives in Green Bay, plans to move to New York City later this year to refresh his musical career. Hans Christian, owner of Studio 330 in Sturgeon Bay, has been producing Mattson’s new album and says working with Eli has been a great experience.
Mattson says his new album offers him a chance to be himself in the studio.
The two intimate concerts, called Eli Mattson Live will be held at 7 pm October 11 and October 12 at Studio 330 in downtown Sturgeon Bay. You can listen to the entire interview with Eli Mattson and Hans Christian with the audio link below.
