Get Backer off to mastering....

Matt's new cd, Get Backer, is due for release sometime late summer or early fall. While Matt was performing at The Key West Songwriters Festival in May, he was also putting the finishing touches on Get Backer with long time producer and pal Ian Shaw. Here are stills from the video for Histronic Narcissit Blues, the first single from Get Backer. We do like the gold lame shirt and the Elvis stance. And the glasses....

Robert Johnsons Birthday at The Green Parrot

Matt joined Bill Blue and Larry Baeder at the famous Green Parrot Bar in Key West May 8 to celebrate the birthday of blues legend, Robert Johnson.
Borm on May 8, 1911, Robert Johnson's 1936 and 1937 recordings still influence musicians. His life and music left an indelible mark in history. He died puportedly of strychnine poisoning after being handed a bottle of tainted liquor by the husband of a woman he'd been flirting with at a juke joint in Greenwood Mississippi. He was 27 years old.

Big thanks to Ralph De Palma for this excellent photo!

A fantastic time at The Key West Songwriters Festival

This photo pretty much says it all. Matt's time in Key West was spent playing and recording music, performing at the legendary Margaritaville and the ultra posh La Concha Resort as part of the Key West Songwriters Festival 2014 and DIVING! Matt also was featured on Pirate Radio Key West. He's a perennial favorite at the station and gets a ton of airplay.
Back home in London now...but sure to be off somewhere soon...

Recently played.....

Matt performed with ABC last week in the lovely City of Cathedrals, Durham, UK.
He played two of his favorite guitars. The Desert Sand Custom Shop Strat is an all time treasure and Matt also spent time on stage with his Gibson Flying V. A good time was had by all....
