I have always had a spot in my heart for country. I mean, I
was born in Oklahoma City, and my first LP I ever bought was Glenn
Campbell “Rhinestone Cowboy”! So I’d wanted
to do a country record on Outlaw, and when Matty and I crossed
paths it happened! The first night I saw him my friend Lexie (who
took the photo on the insert for the LP) took me to see him at
the Living Room in NYC. There were some rather rude people in
the back talking real loud while his band was playing, and between
songs Matty addressed them and told them if they wanted to talk
to go outside! It was hilarious, and his music was great so I
was immediately won over.
They had a CD that they were selling at the show, so I asked
him if they wanted to maybe do a vinyl version of it. He was into
it, and so we got it underway. I had the vinyl pressed, and he
took care of the covers- which came out beautifully. He hand screened
all of them, we put together an insert for it and that was that.
All in all, maybe the easiest to get together and one of my favorite
releases ever on the label! Really well written country folk sounding
songs that are catchy as hell and stick in my head like glue.
