artists matthew likes

Alex Whitmore
Country/folk/whatever with a liberal dose of humor.
Beth Brown
She is not only the matthew show quintet's venerable fiddlist, but is also a fine songwriter. Check out her debut album, co-produced by a certain nerd popper.
Brave Combo
Unless you're dead, these people will make you move. Now with Little Jack Melody on bass. How could it get sweeter?
It's country, it's's crisco.
Dorian Spencer
Music of hope from the subways and sidewalks of NYC.
Doug Kwartler
Doug melds country & rock in a nicely gritty way, like the best Long Island Iced Tea ever.
Ed Rogers
Guitarist for the matthew show quintet, and a damned fine songwriter to boot.
Glen Phillips
The perenially underappreciated frontman of Toad the Wet Sprocket.
Fine progressive power-pop from Cowtown.
James Dunn and the Western Set
Guitarist, composer, enigma. Check out some of his matthew-engineered tracks here.
Jasper Stone
Country rock featuring an old matthew show associate, the estimable Ron Geida.
John Flor Sisante
Moody tunesmithing from a true believer.
Las Rubias del Norte
If you think South American music is what you see on Telemundo, have a gander at these folks for a change of heart.
Little Jack Melody & His Young Turks
My musical godfather.
Mocha Lab
My musical collaborator Paul, in all his unique glory. You won't believe how awesome it is.
Shithead Jackson and the Ne'er Do Wells
Rock, country, dirt. Good stuff from my late former bandmate on the streets of Weatherford, Texas.
Shotgun Friday
Wild-ass hillbilly/hip-hop music like you ain't never heard, and in which I play a frequent part.
Villain Vanguard
Easily one of the best progressive rock/funk/pop outfits you would have ever seen whilst they were together. Also featured my former bandmate and occasional collaborator Mr. Geida. The man gets around.
