Press and Testimonials

Drawing from country legends like Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson, and John Prine, Matt Buetow’s songs are honest and true, ranging from fingerpicked ballads to tele-driven shuffles. Every song comes straight from experience and his smooth tenor vocals give each carefully crafted lyric a classic feel. The musicianship with which Matt and his band showcase their sound has won them the recognition of all types of listeners, and put them on the stage with bands such as The Head And The Heart.

Working with Matt Buetow and his band was nothing but a joy.  The band was very easy to work with throughout the booking and performance process.  During the show, they were engaging with the audience, enthusiastic, and musically gifted.  The audience loved the show…  I highly recommend this band for any show!

Matt Buetow and his band kicked off our Coffeehouse season and left high standards for the performers that followed. They performed for an intimate audience of about 300 people at Gonzaga's Coffeehouse series. The band captivated the student's attention right off the bat with the soulful and smooth music. Their sound was extremely unique and their music fit perfectly with the relaxing and laid back coffeehouse scene. Matt Buetow was a joy to work with and I would recommend other schools and venues into looking to book them for one of their shows or events!

There was a certain aura that this band resonated even through the computer screen when I was making the decision to book the band. I booked them for a show at the University of Puget Sound and they performed above satisfactory. Overall, they were a collective of superb musicians and amazing people to work with. I thoroughly enjoyed their music and I respect the amount of heart they put into this project.
