LowellArts Featured Artist of the Month for August 2021: Bruce Matthews Band

LowellArts announces that Bruce Matthews Band is the Featured Artist of the Month for August.

Leading man, Bruce Matthews, describes the band’s musical style as “front porch music,” stating it’s the feel they’re looking for – folks sitting around on the front porch, singing songs, and telling stories, and laughing and crying together, sometimes at the same time. Band members of the Bruce Matthews Band include Bruce Matthews (acoustic guitar, vocals), Tony Muka (mandolin, electric guitar), Esther Klompmaker (vocals), Sheila DeGroot (vocals), Alison Myers (vocals), David Pomper (keyboard), Jack Befus (bass), and Rick Stone (percussion). Bruce Matthews Band has released two albums, So Far (2014) and Roll Your Windows Down (2018), with a third album to be released this year on August 15, titled What You Leave Behind.

Learn more about Bruce Matthews Band and their albums with an in-depth article and live-recorded interview on the LowellArts website, lowellartsmi.org/lafa. This content will be available to the public on August 1st.
