Who Is Mathias
The grandson of NBA Hall Of Fame legend and two-time NCAA All American, David “Big Daddy” Lattin, Mathias Lattin chose to bring his talent to the stage and not the basketball court. The decision has already paid off. At 20 years old, Mathias Lattin won 1st place at the International Blues Challenge in the band category and was awarded Best Guitarist by the judges; a feat accomplished by one other person, Castro,” Mr. Sipp” Coleman in 2014.
Mathias Lattin is an emerging young Texas guitarist and product of the acclaimed Kinder High School for Performing and Visual Arts. He’s heavily influenced by music legends B.B. King, Johnny “Guitar” Watson, Albert Collins, and Wes Montgomery. Mathias’s love for music is reflected in the soulful blues, jazz-inflected chords, and funky bass lines. Trained as a jazz guitarist, he incorporates that knowledge in his playing and songwriting.
At only 20 years old, he has shared the stage with Keeshea Pratt, Annika Chambers De-Lauries and Christone Kingfish Ingram.
The Living Blues Magazine's review of his debut EP “Let’s Start Here” determined “…there’s enough promise here to mark him as an artist to watch.” He continues to pave his way in the Blues, Mathias is on his way to creating his own legacy through his music.
