Department of Tangents Podcast  

I've enjoyed Nick Zaino's writing in the Boston Globe for a long time. He's also a terrific singer-songwriter that I've had the opportunity to play a couple of shows with. He does a weekly podcast called The Department of Tangents and I had the chance to sit down and chat with him recently. We talk all about the new album, my life in music and a lot more.

I also was recently featured in a couple of music website articles. You can click on the links to read the review of my new album from Pitstop for Country and Eight Essential Questions with The Daily Country.



















February Update 

I had a great time hanging with Steve Katsos on his TV Show (The Steve Katsos Show). You can watch a replay of the episode by clicking here. I play two songs and do an interview at around the forty minute mark (the whole episode is great though). I've updated the list of shows and will be back in action next Friday, February 2nd in Duxbury.

Country 102.5 FM Catch of the Week 

A big thank you to Boston's Country 102.5 FM and Carolyn Kruse for having me in-studio to talk about the new album and play a couple of acoustic tunes. You can check out the video at http://country1025.com/2018/01/catch-week-matt-york-2/. Both songs are brand-new ones that I haven't recorded yet but that I'm pretty happy about. 

Have some cool show announcements here in the next week or so as well.

Thanks for your support!

Winter 2017/2018 Update 

The new album "Between the Bars" is now available on all digital platforms. If you are on Spotify, please be sure to follow me on there. In addition to the new album, my old band Wide Iris has released a bunch of songs on iTunes/Spotify etc. The album is called You Bend Me and has a few tracks from each of the four albums we released several years ago.

I'll be playing as part of The Outlaw Roadshow on Thursday, December 21st at Alchemy in Providence, R.I. These shows are always fun and it's a great lineup of bands. For more info, visit www.theoutlawroadshow.com. Ryan Spaulding who puts these shows together also wrote some really kind words about the album. You can read that at http://www.rslblog.com/2017/12/matt-york-between-bars.html

I had a chance to do an interview with Global Texas Chronicles talking about each of the songs on the new album and what they are about. You can read that at http://globaltexanchronicles.com/between/.

Finally, it's a long ways away, but I was asked to perform at The South Shore Country Music Festival. That'll take place in September, 2018 at the Marshfield Fairgrounds and includes national acts like Easton Corbin and Maddie and Tae. For more info on that, visit http://www.southshorecountryfestival.com/.

Thanks for your support in 2017 and have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
