View World Music Days Events for this Artist
Like his guitar collection, Justin Mather’s songs, styles and musical skills are as fascinating to behold as they are anxiously played by the always-curious 29-year-old. Mather hails from the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts and has been performing with bands and as a solo artist since he was fourteen. Spiriting an easy-riding fusion of AMERICANA / ALT-COUNTRY / FOLK/ROCK, Mather writes songs about and for the world - embracing both its beauty and harsh realities. His two self-produced albums have both had favorable reviews from Las Vegas City Life. “Mather isn't about snappy hooks or instrument tricks; he plays straightforward, dark-timbre rock that can recall an early Wilco (Riverside), Death Cab For Cutie (Hiding Your Eyes) and even Bob Dylan (The Elevator Song).” “Justin Mather sounds a bit like Steve Forbert crossed with John Denver, and his songs are romantic and smart enough to make you want to hear them over and again.” Mather recently signed 11 songs with two L.A.-based music libraries who work primarily in TV/Film. He is currently gigging regularly and working on recording a rather extensive backlog of songs in his home studio in Boulder City Nevada.
