Capital Underground Live (3.5.2015)

Mar 7, 2015   //   by Matthew   //   Media, News  //  No Comments


Last Thursday, I took the stage at Bomber’s Burrito Bar’s upstairs performance space in Troy, NY.

I led the evening off and was followed by electro pop singer Jeremy Gold and local hip hop rising star Dom Pat. The night was all apart of the Capital Underground series led by Ralph Renna.

Good jams from everybody. Enjoy the pics and videos compliments of the always amazing Upst8musicafanzone.

Daniel Extrom – To Whom It May Concern

Feb 12, 2015   //   by Matthew   //   Media, News  //  No Comments

Recently, I was tasked with bringing a lyricist’s ideas to life. After about a year of writing, arranging and recording – Daniel Extrom’s album To Whom It May Concern is finally complete.

Each of these lyrics was written by Daniel Extrom over the last 30 years (give or take). He’s been boiling this pot for a while and it was a distinct pleasure to help him realize his musical dream. Over the course of making this record, we enlisted the help of veteran song & dance man Alex Perone for vocals. I, myself, played all the guitars, bass, keyboards, mandolin, various synthesizer effects  and with the help of Grammy award winning producer Dan, we brought these jams to life.

Please enjoy the record. It’s unique, impossible to place in a genre and altogether original.


In the studio this week..

428301_724647219508_555615618_nI’m in the studio this week laying down some bass, guitar, keyboards and vocals for a couple of different projects.

Currently, I’m working on helping craft a much-anticipated demo from a local 518 songwriter. Additionally, I’ll be helping craft the beats for some local hip hop acts.

I’ll be sure to post the recorded material when it’s mixed, mastered & ready for publication!

Back in action in Queesbury, on 1.31 playing my old brand of Solo Acoustic +


Back to it in 2014!

(Controlled) Fire on Blue Mountain

Oct 16, 2013   //   by Matthew   //   News  //  No Comments


Just wanted to take a quick moment to thank my friends at Blue Mountain – playing at the Slopeside Bar & Grill was easily one of the coolest gigs I have ever played.

The views over the valley, the good vibe, and echoing acoustics all contribute to making this place an incredible experience for a wandering minstrel like myself.

I hope to feel the mountain breeze again, and pick out a few more chords under that exquisite pergola when the snow starts falling!
