Matthew McNeal stops by Seasick for an in-store performance at 3PM! Come pick up a copy of his new album a week before it's official release!
After years of touring in support of the 2015 debut 'Compadre', McNeal and longtime drummer Andre Black return with 'Good Luck', an LP recorded by Grammy award-winning Ted Young (Kurt Vile, The Rolling Stones). Backed by an all-star band, the album weaves in and out of genre atop the analog hiss of a 1971 tape machine. Matthew McNeal delivers inventive storytelling over a groove-laden soundtrack, sonically mirroring the dynamic landscapes seen while weaving across the country.
Striving to bring analog sounds and high-caliber songwriting into the modern era without gimmick, Matthew and long-time drummer Andre Black teamed up with Israel Nash and his band at Nash's Plum Creek Sound studio in the heart of the Texas hill country. With Grammy award-winning Ted Young at the helm of a 16-track tape machine, the group spent four days recording nine tracks that would become 'Good Luck', Matthew's second studio album. The collection of work presents a youthful take on analog production, blurring the lines between genre with inventive musicality and lyricism with a sense of clarity.
During the record's 34-minute runtime, a listener is due to experience the edge that alternative music carries, the unbound emotion of soul, and the raw energy of rock & roll. Good Luck will be released on February 16, 2018 through McNeal's own Matte Black Sound Company.

With a band hotter than a four-balled tomcat, Sam Frazier cut some of the most powerful southern soul ever!" —Ardie Dean

Deaf Poets are an American garage/alternative rock duo formed in Miami Beach, FL. The band consists of Sean Wouters (Lead Vocals/Guitar) and Nico Espinosa (Vocals/Percussion). Their music is the embodiment of hard-hitting drums with distortion-soaked guitars. Wouter’s childhood influences, such as Jimmy Page and Kurt Cobain, led the duo to combine elements of 70s rock, with the aggressiveness of 80's punk, and an added aspect of 90s grunge to define their sound. The duo met in elementary school; and during their high school years, they went through a long process of musical experimentation, which ultimately led to the founding of Deaf Poets.
The duo cemented their place in the South Florida indie scene by performing at numerous music venues across the city such as, Churchill's, Bardot, Gramps and Grand Central- ultimately earning the title, “Best Band of Miami” in 2014 as well as being apart of the, “20 Most Influential People of Miami” award in 2015, by The Miami New Times. Their single, “Degenerate Mind”, from their debut album “4150” was selected to be a part of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 video game soundtrack and was also featured in Classic Rock Magazine's compilation CD in 2014. Deaf Poets have become regulars at iiiPoints music festival, performing for four years in a row, alongside acts like, Mac Demarco and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. In 2015, Deaf Poets supported the indie dance duo, Matt and Kim, throughout their Florida tour dates. They have also shared the stage with Andy Rourke, The Ettes, Pujol, Jennie Vee (Courtney Love), Ted Leo and The Pharmacists, and The Peach Kings.

Guitarist Jeremy Fetzer, hailing from Canton, Ohio, and pedal steel player Spencer Cullum from Essex, England met while touring the U.K. with Nashville singer/songwriter Caitlin Rose.

They started writing between sound checks and Steelism was born. They have backed a wide array of artists such as Wanda Jackson, Johnny Fritz, Rayland Baxter, Andrew Combs, Ruby Amanfu and others. Their debut full-length, 615 to FAME, was released in September 2014 on Single Lock Records (founded by founded by Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes, John Paul White of The Civil Wars and Will Trapp).
