Here’s some photos that DJ Grant and Barbara Hawkins sent to me from my appearance on New Zealand’s Galaxy 107 FM on Monday. I had so much fun chatting with these two rebel rousers and can’t say enough nice things about them, they’re truly genuine folks. I hope someday we can find a way to have them as guests on The Friday Nite Gamble because they’d blend in perfectly.
Matt will be interviewed by DJ Grant on April 5th at 7pm EDT United States time on New Zealand’s Galaxy 107 FM. You can watch it on Facebook Live here: BarbaraHarkins.750 or online at: www.galaxyfm.co.nz
Here’s the first trailer for the upcoming music video/short film ‘Burnt Out Soul’ that I’ve been working on with Tony Prestwood. It drops on April 20th - tune in, freak out and watch your worst nightmares become reality!
Last month Ron Taylor interviewed me for the WNC Original Music podcast. Hotamighty, we talked in depth for almost two hours about every song on my latest album ‘Burnt Out Soul’, The Friday Nite Gamble, my personal experience with Hubert Sumlin and how he affected my guitar playing, why you can’t teach songwriting, how playing with Austin Hicks in The Low Counts made me re-think my approach to guitar, what I’ve learned about the technical side of film production working with Tony Prestwood and I do an impression of Mookie Brill and hope that he doesn’t punch me in the gut the next time he sees me. Check out part one of the podcast here:
Ron Taylor is a thought provoking, witty personality. His questions for the artists he highlights are fresh, never stock and this podcast series is definitely worth the binge. The relaxed vibe Ron brings will make you feel right at home and he has a knack for getting the artist he’s interviewing to open up. Have at it honey and please subscribe to the podcast while your having at it darlin.
