UPDATE SPRING 2022
Mat D signs Recording and Publishing deal with indie label SMC RECORDS
In early 2022 Mat D was released from his contract with Crazy Poet Records as the label recently announced that they were ending operations. In the meantime Mat has been busy building a new merch store and re-releasing his old catalog on streaming services. We are pleased to announce that Mat D has signed a recording and publishing deal with a new label SMC Records - run by industry veterans and musicians. Not only will they be releasing Mat's upcoming album- they've also picked up Phantom Locomotive. Thank you to Scott, Mark and Crag for the opportunity.
“I've been in and around music and the business of music, since the early 1970's. In all that time I've heard a lot of bad music, a lot of good music but very little GREAT music. This is GREAT music; well written, well played, solidly produced...from beginning to end the finest example of Americana Rockabilly I have ever heard... It stacks up with Haggard, Johnny Cash, Elvis, and kicks the liver out of most major label attempts in this genre ” - Jim Pipkin
