Matt Townsend is a songwriter, poet and seeker based in Asheville,NC. With his distinctive voice, and a world weary insight, he delivers his original songs grounded in the folk, rock and pop traditions. Live, the band flows from high energy rock n roll, to quiet folk tunes and back. Bob Dylan, Neutral Milk Hotel, Neil Young being some the early musical guiding lights. Lyrically the songs explore the spiritual dissonance between the individual and the world at large, longing for connection, love as redemption, and more.
