Featured Artist of the Month: Bruce Matthews Band
Leading man, Bruce Matthews, describes the band’s musical style as "front porch music," stating it’s the feel they're looking for - folks sitting around on the front porch, singing songs, and telling stories, and laughing and crying together, sometimes at the same time.
Learn more about Bruce Matthews Band with an in-depth article and live-recorded interview.
