"Matt's voice and words have that Nashville outcast vibe to it," says Jay Sweet, producer of the Newport Folk Festival and a longtime champion of Matt's music. "He's not California, he's not Texas, he's not Brooklyn—even though he's lived in all of those places. He's a transplant and a vagabond, which is why he embodies folk and rock music. For a singer- songwriter, he is truly refreshing."
Matt went solo for simple reasons-- to return to the style of rock he loves. And when he went solo he REALLY went solo. He plays every instrument on the record, except for two drum tracks and one guitar track. Delta Spirit undoubtedly will be back but he wanted to make a collection of music without the influence of his beloved brethren (it's only natural for a frontman to feel the need to let loose from time to time). You will hear his new material and you will hear Iggy Pop. Neil Young. Kurt Cobain. Gram Parsons. But ultimately, you're hearing Matthew Logan Vasquez. A man young at heart, who loves the shit out of rock music... loves it so much that it's been his life's goal to make the masses reconnect with her spirit. But he's become a father, and he's been through some shit. His dad was a bomb builder. Fact.
At the end of the day, Matt's objective as a singer, a poet, a preacher, a believer in this beautiful bullshit we call "RocknRoll," is to find some harmony through life's confusion and to make you feel good about yourself. He'll be spreading his message via his wonderful songs starting in the fall of 2015. You better go put your dimes in his collection basket. Are there better things you can be doin with those dimes?
