From the salvaged sounds of American juke joints, back porches, honky tonks, and rock clubs, The Suitcase Junket is a one-man virtuoso, Matt Lorenz, whose signature sound is a mash up of mountain ballads, original rock anthems, blues manifestos, and dance-hall festivity. It is magnificent, rousing songwriting, played out on instruments built from broken bottles, thrift store forks, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, and more. Named to Spotify’s Best of Folk & Americana and Blues & Blues Rock playlists (he has combined streams of 1.25 million), he caught the attention of NPR (who chose his album Make Time as one of the year’s favorite sessions). Make time for this one.
“a lo-fi, low-tuned, low-down blast of end-times folk blues….captivating, mesmerizing, and gone…real gone.” Rochester City Newspaper
