I remember being listening to Joe when I was younger and being absolutely blown away. Surfing with the Alien was one of the coolest things I'd ever heard. I had a similar feeling when I first heard Matt play. It was different. Note choices and phrasing that made you want to keep listening.
I wish I could catch a show with these two!
Fortunately I did get tickets to see Matt at Peter's Players in July. I'M STOKED!
For more info on the tour check out Matt's website:
While I'm at it I should mention I picked up a copy of Matt's latest release called Ten from the Road. It's a live album recorded while the band was on tour. It is absolutely killer.
Matt's sound has gotten a little dirtier (but still so full of tone) and there were even a few moments in solos where I heard something bordering on shred! You should definitely check this album out.
You can download Ten From The Road at the link below.
Enjoy and PLAY ON!
