Doing 200 plus shows a year throughout the US with his rock guitar/drum duo, 'The Low Counts' or under his own name, Matt Walsh is a vocalist / guitarist / song writer from North Carolina. His sound is influenced by the energy and guitar tones from early “roots" recordings that he heard in his youth, anyone from Link Wray to Robert Nighthawk to Black Sabbath. On any given night you'll hear him use those early influences to rip through and seamlessly combine the landscape of American sounds into his original music. The result refects his love for many genres of raw, unpretentious music– 50's urban and county Blues, Hill Country stomp, various kinds of Rock, Rockabilly and Soul. His playing, coupled with his soulful vocals have sold music critics and fans, who dig his stripped down, honest sound. The primary focus is on original music and blending his roots with new ideas rather than replicating them.
