The Real Matt Jones
Americana Folk Rock in the Cellar Bar!
“This alt-country/new-country band from Albuquerque, NM has more than likely touched some corner of the musical world where you hail from or have at least visited – the 4 members in the band have collectively appeared on over 1000 recording projects. Easily one of the most palatable bands you will hear this year, The Real Matt Jones has played shows all over the world, won awards for musicality and songwriting, and has shared the stage with multiple international acts including Colin Hay of Men at Work, Sister Hazel, and Rod Stewart (yes, that Rod Stewart!)
Their latest release, One Day (2017), shows that melody is not dead, storytelling is not just for Merle Haggard, and guitar solos are not just for NFL bumper music. From the ganjo-heavy opening track, “The Way it Should Be” to the Springsteen-esque riff of the closing “Shot at Greatness,” here is a record that marks the best parts of summers past and those yet to come. Look for them in a Southwestern U.S. venue near you, and raise a glass to this ‘Burque band!”
