More on Matt Maeson:
Hailed by American Songwriter for “(creating) a sound unlike much else out there,” Matt Maeson has been on a remarkable journey all his life. The Chesapeake Bay, VA-native grew up on tour, traveling and performing with his parents’ prison ministry at maximum-security penitentiaries across America. His experiences – which include winning over crowds of naked women and Hells Angels at the world-famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota – inspired him to begin writing songs, spare and powerful confessionals infused with additional strength via his raw, soulful vocal approach. Maeson posted his first songs online in late 2015 and the following summer, embarked on his first US headline tour, presented by Communion, the influential artists’ collective co-founded by Mumford and Sons’ Ben Lovett.
His album, Bank On The Funeral – earned wide-ranging critical applause upon its April 2019 release. “Maeson has been impressing the world with his dynamically emotional lyrics and equally powerful melodies with every song he releases,” raved Ones To Watch, “and Bank On The Funeral is no different. His authoritative voice commands the attention of anyone in earshot. Maeson strays on the lines between folk and alternative-pop, showcasing his diverse inspirations ranging from Johnny Cash to Kurt Cobain.”
Now based in Austin, TX, Maeson has spent much the past half decade on the road, including his own headline tours, support runs alongside artists like Jaymes Young, Bishop Briggs, and Vallis Alps, and show-stopping sets at such top festivals as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Forecastle, and more.
