The show that I was supposed to play on December 2nd at the Tuneful Brew in Duxbury has been rescheduled until April. Unfortunately, the building had some water damage and they needed to reschedule.
I recorded a Christmas song last year and you can download it for free at https://soundcloud.com/wideiris/blue-christmas. It's a cover of the Ernest Tubb song "Blue Christmas" which was later recorded by Elvis.
I have a track on the digital compilation Keep Boston Safe that was put together by Anngelle Wood of Boston Emissions. The Keep Boston Safe compilation is raising money for Fenway Health which, for more than 45 years has been their mission to enhance the well-being of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community and all people in our neighborhoods and beyond through access to the highest quality health care, education, research and advocacy. To donate and download the digital compilation, visit https://keepsafeboston.bandcamp.com/
We've got full band shows on Saturday, January 7th at Olympia's Zorba Hall in Lowell and January 14th at P.A.'s Lounge in Somerville. More info on those shows coming soon. I'll also be returning to the studio in January to record a new album.
“You have to have smarts and heart to turn the same three chords Buddy Holly used into something fresh. On Matt York’s “Boston, Texas,” the singer-songwriter uses basic building blocks — Holly’s chords, Hank Williams’ swagger, Steve Earle’s boozy wisdom, Paul Westerberg’s straight-up-drunk wisdom — to construct an album of beauty, optimism and heartbreak. York came up with indie rock notables Wide Iris around the turn of the century, but has been out of the game for a while. He doesn’t seem rusty. The lead track “Big Fan of Why” has him charging into aces roadhouse rockabilly. “Let’s Go to the Beach” adds snarl and strut to the affair. “Tomorrows” draws a line between ’70s country rock and Northampton indie I didn’t know could be drawn. These songs have so much life and pathos, I can’t imagine the kind of power they would have live. Thankfully, I don’t need to speculate. York celebrates the release of “Boston, Texas” this weekend” - Jed Gottlieb. Boston Herald, January, 2016.
