My name is Matt Stevens and this is my website.
I'm up to a few things at the moment, I play solo acoustic guitar and loop pedal gigs and I'm very pleased to say I've signed to Esoteric Recordings and my new album Lucid is released on the 31st March.
It is now available to pre-order from Burning Shed. This is what they say:
"Lucid sees Matt Stevens joined by a host of guest musicians including Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson), Lorenzo Feliciati (Naked Truth), Charlie Cawood (Knifeworld), Jem Godfrey (Frost*) and vibes player Jon Hart.
A step beyond Matt's previous work, Lucid is an album that reflects a love of Jesu and Celtic Frost, as much as it does a passion for Mahavishnu Orchestra and King Crimson."
Art is by Carl Glover (Steve Wilson/King Crimson etc)
Your support is very much appreciated
I think it's also starting to appear on a few of the international sites as well, Amazon etc... If you could share this that would be lovely. We will also have a simultaneous digital release for those that like using i-tunes, amazon digital etc
