      Matt Roach- Feather

      F/E/A/T/H/E/R is folk music with a funk feel, material ranging from conceptual to emotional to abstract. Led by Taylor Rich, and often accompanied by additional musicians adding their own vibes and flavor. Find out more about FEATHER at https://www.feather-music.com/, https://www.facebook.com/feathermusicpage/, http://soundcloud.com/feathermusicpage and http://instagram.com/feather.music. Feather will be opening for Matt at 6:30. This will be Matt Roach’s second appearance at our coffeehouse. He began as a quasi-comedian. When he was 15 years old he started the sketch comedy the group played all over the Philadelphia area. During this time Matt began writing comedy songs to perform, along with the sketches. After the sketch group ended, he started to concentrate on writing music. He kept writing and, now 25 years and 500 songs later, he is still going. He doesn’t play any cover songs. Matt says, “I never taught myself any because the original artist would perform the song much better then I ever could”. So, fast, slow, happy, sad…possibly demented music. But, all original, all the time!! Matt has been fortunate enough to perform on a regular basis for many years, playing over 250 shows throughout the East Coast. He has received radio play in the U.S. and Europe. Matt has opened for Hamell on Trial, Steve Poltz (twice), Steve Forbert, Asylum Street Spankers, Peter Tork from the Monkees, UK legends The Alarm and opened three times for Marshall Crenshaw. Matt has released eight cd’s, including a double Holiday cd. His new album “The Last Great Day” comes out in February 2018. His live shows are always fun experiences. Matt says, “I love interacting with the audience. I like keeping them guessing by switching my songs from happy to sad and, then, back again”. http://www.mattroachmusic.com https://www.youtube.com/user/jppi87 Everyone is welcome at our weekly Friday night PAY WHAT YOU CAN venue.
