I have a couple of shows in May and will likely be adding more spring dates soon. Also excited to announce that I'll be returning to the studio in May to record a new record. The album will be a pretty sparse more acoustic-driven album. I'm excited to get started on it.
The South Shore Country Music Festival is still months away but they are putting together a great lineup. I'll be doing a full band set earlier in the day for that. For more info, visit http://www.southshorecountryfestival.com/. The headliners include Uncle Kracker, Easton Corbin and Jimmie Allen.
If you click on the picture below, you can read the Q&A I recently di with Boston Voyager Magazine. I've also added some new dates that you can find on the Shows page. I'm back in action next week with two shows. On Tuesday, I'll be in Cranston R.I. at Pub on Park for a solo show. On Friday, April 27th, I'll be doing a full band show at The Midway Café in Jamaica Plain.
Below, you'll find links to a couple of live video recordings I did in March. One of them was part of the Lowell Train TV Show that airs on Channel 8. The other one was part of the 1950 Clothing Company's Facebook online concerts.
I've only got two shows in April. I'll be in Cranston R.I. at Pub on Park for a solo show on Tuesday, April 24th. On April 27th, I'll be doing a full band show at The Midway Café in Jamaica Plain.
On Tuesday, March 27th, I'll be performing on Facebook as part of 1950 Clothing Company's Online Concert Series (The 1950 Sessions). It's a great opportunity for those that would like to see me perform but don't actually want to get off their couches to do so. I'll be playing at 9 p.m. EST and you can watch online by visiting https://www.facebook.com/1950clothingco/
I've got some more things in the works for the spring that I'll be passing along soon. If you haven't liked my Facebook page, you should. It's the best way to keep up to update. My page is www.facebook.com/mattyorkboston.

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.
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.
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.
