Last week was a great time in New York as part of The Outlaw Roadshow. This summary really does a great job of what the weekend was like http://recordsrocketsandrosemary.com/2016/10/25/passion-people-the-outlaw-roadshow/. We're back in action on Sunday, November 6th at 4 p.m. w/ Carissa Johnson at Atwoods Tavern in Cambridge.
“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.
