Hey y’all, Matt here:
In May 2010, I moved to Seattle from Chicago. Back in Chicago I was the co-frontman of a pretty successful local band. Upon arriving in Seattle, however, I didn’t know anyone or anything about the local music scene besides everyone telling me that “it’s a great music town.”
This blog started as a means to explore music communities in Seattle and stay connected to music I loved back in Chicago. Now, about two years later, I am a part of those communities as an individual and as a member of Seattle band The Local Strangers, so this blog’s purpose is shifting. From here on out it will be more personal – more of a creative outlet to help me dig into music that is affecting me. I hope that it will help keep me grounded in why I love music, and keep me open to being moved by it. Thanks for reading and sharing these experiences with me.
