Up and coming singer/songwriter Katie Matzell and the Jason Spooner Band co-present the third in our MaineMadeMusic series. Don’t miss this dynamic Portland Maine double-bill!
ABOUT KATIE MATZELL: Katie Matzell is an up-and-coming singer and songwriter from Portland, Maine, who released her self-titled, debut EP at the start of 2018. In a recent review, The Deli Magazine said “Matzell’s voice, both effortless and simple, floats above a sea of washy keys and pocket grooves, calling comparisons to not only her influences of the past (Bonnie Raitt and Aretha Franklin), but to her contemporaries—Norah Jones and Emily King immediately come to mind.”
ABOUT JASON SPOONER: The band’s sound is a unique blend of roots, folk and blues focused around Jason’s tastefully rhythmic flat-picking style and the band’s air-tight foundation. With laid-back vocals and an emotive, image-rich writing style all his own, Jason is a songwriter to watch. Think J.J. Cale meets Neil Young meets G. Love with dashes of Paul Simon and Kelly Joe Phelps. Sound bizarre? Hearing is believing!
General Admission Tickets $14
