August Shows


August 2010

Artist Profile:

Matthew O’neil

Matthew O'Neill is currently touring solo in support of his new album entitled 'The Harbor's Delight' and a compilation called 'Otorongo Mix'. Journeying from the mountain town of Topanga, California, he has worked his way East with an impressive array of solo performances. 'The Harbor's Delight' carves vibrant new shapes and expressions out of mountain music, high songwriting style, and multi-latitudinal grooves. The album was recorded in the Catskill Mountains and finished at his solar powered, water collecting shack in Topanga.

Mr. O'Neill has performed as a solo artist for years while traveling and taking root in various mountainous regions. He is somewhat hermetic by nature but has managed to assemble and dismantle several groups over time, and there is beautiful evidence of these ensembles on previous recordings. Matthew is recognized foremost as an original artist whose primary mode of expression invokes exceptional songwriting, a uniquely expressive guitar style, and a knack for inspired performance.

"Matthew’s songwriting is rural-primitive/awesome, his electric guitar work is pristinely luscious and beautifully intense, the band walks a fine and hitherto unwalked line between world-groove and country-rock ..." ~ Neptune Research blog
