Matthew McNeal in concert
Matthew McNeal is an Americana artist from North Texas, with sonic nods to rock and roll, electric folk music, and hints of soul. After teaming up with Joey McClellan (BNQT, Israel Nash) and McKenzie Smith (Midlake, St. Vincent) for his 2015 release Compadre, Texas-based McNeal and company have spent the past few years touring extensively to cultivate a grassroots movement behind their music. The 24 year-old aims to bring an unorthodox feel to Americana, pushing poetic storytelling forward atop a mix of genres. With longtime drummer Andre Black as a permanent touring/songwriting fixture, the band recently wrapped 8 months of touring across the US in preparation for their sophomore effort. The band hits the road again this fall.
McNeal will perform at the Woody Guthrie Center Theater at 7 p.m. Sept. 7. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door, available by calling 918-574-2710.
