MATT MACKEY

"Born to Play"

One of the best songwriters out there in our opinion...Others have said...

 

This is a place where people from all over the world can gather under a single digital roof and swap stories of what they've experienced while listening to Matt Mackey's music. Some have climbed mountains, some have made love, and others simply make it the soundtrack to any drive over two hours.

Mackey has said, "I was born several years ago. In months 11, 14 and 1 respectively I picked up skills like walking, talking, eating, etc. I'm WAY bigger now than I was then. People kept giving me microphones and instruments, and I kept taking them. Now I use bars and the internet to give people a chance to listen to what I make when I put all of those microphones and instruments together."

TOWNE

"Smooth and wavy"

On their latest release...

“In The In Between” is a collection of songs written over 9 years (2011-2019) that have, for one reason or another, stood the test of time. These songs have followed us from Dubois, WY where we met in late 2010, to the Studio I & II apartment complex behind the Colonial Liquor Store on 8th Ave in Nashville. These songs followed us while we fell in and out of love with one another, and these songs were the common thread that sewed up our hearts and held us together. These songs took on a whole new life, energy, and purpose after meeting our guitarist, Luke Marshall, at a Kentucky 4-H seminar.

 

These songs have been sung in dive bars, theaters, living rooms, and everywhere in between, all over the country. They’ve been kept alive by our fans that have requested them throughout the years, somehow knowing every word even though they had never been recorded. These same songs have also been called; not good enough, not commercial enough, not happy enough, not sad enough, and not “enough” enough by folks we’ve surrounded ourselves with in the past.

 

These songs gave us the courage to make this record. Our fans gave us the reason.

This one’s for you, 

Steevie & Jon & Luke
