Fresh off a recent appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and in the midst of a sold-out national tour, Richmond’s Matthew E. White is becoming a bona fide star. A longtime fixture on the local music scene, the guitarist’s critically acclaimed second album, “Fresh Blood” on Domino Records, is a tour-de-force of understated soul. Chock full of subtle graces, White and his crack backing band — consisting of bassist Cameron Ralston, drummer Pinson Chanselle and guitarist Trey Pollard — have crafted a hushed J.J. Cale-inspired survey of American music that breathes new life into old forms. And when you consider his stellar production work on records released on his Spacebomb label by Natalie Prass, Grandma Sparrow, the solo project of Joe Westerlund from Megafaun, and Howard Ivans, you have the makings of a homegrown Berry Gordy, Willie Green and Robbie Robertson all rolled into one. White brings his songs in the key of life to the Broadberry on Saturday, April 11. Doors open at 8 p.m. Admission is $10-$12. thebroadberry.com.
