NEW ALBUM UPDATE
Work continues on Mat's new album for Crazy Poet Records
We just wrapped a weekend full of drum sessions with none other than Jeff Deignan at the percussion helm.
Jeff has performed and arranged drums with Mat since 2006 and was a founding member of the now disbanded Profane Saints. It was a blast working with Jeff again as he is adding percussion parts to seven songs on the album. great to be making music with him again.
Work continues on percussion and in the next few weeks. The very talented Rick Stoops was kind enough to add Fiddle and Mandolin to several tracks with bass and electric guitar tracks to follow in upcoming sessions. Looking very forward to sharing the new single with you very soon!
