“Matt Irie Band is one of those groups with a super catchy sound that can be described as “Island infused gritty blues” . Fans are provided with an original & energetic sound from the Matt Irie Band. These boys have been on the road and shared the stages with bands such as Pepper, Rev Run,Badflower, Ludacris, Fortunate Youth, ORGY, Kottonmouth Kings, The Green, Stick Figure, Passafire, The Movement, Ballyhoo!, CKY, Morning 40 Federation, Motionless in White & More.
This quartet is made up by singer, Matt Irie, Will Barkley on drums, Joe Watkins on Guitar, Michael Dorsett on bass & Larry Holcomb on Guitar. Drawing influence from bands like Beastie Boys, Johnny Cash, 311 & Incubus, these boys have developed their own unique style that has been winning crowds over at venues all over the Southeast and by word of mouth, created a buzz all around the US and reaching fans far as Australia, France & Japan.
The new single, “Coastal” is a tribute to that salty air with a margarita in hand lifestyle. Something that this band has learned to write about exceptionally well! with a catchy hook, super smooth guitar riffs & a laid back drum beat, this is a track that is right on time for these warmer months and we’re here for it all. This song was mixed by Stephen Sullivan of Behind The Sound & Mastered by Maor Appelbaum at Maor Appelbaum Mastering.”
The band plans to a release a string of singles under TLG/INGROOVES Music Group. Also, lookout for more festival/club shows in the Spring & Summer.
