What began in 2008 as an acoustic trio, coming out of the California high-desert communities of Yucca Valley & Joshua Tree, has grown into...
A powerful brotherhood of a band, playing dynamic, dirty blues-rock, with a sexy, swampy feel. MT’s gritty lead vocals and dirty slide guitar, gives the band a distinctly unique sound that translates well to acoustic rock, and fits comfortably in Blues, Rock, Southern Rock, Country Alt, Americana-Rock genres.
During pre-production for their next album, the Messengers recorded several live tracks, which are available for streaming on their site and their ReverbNation player.
The band is currently performing shows (electric and acoustic) and has recently opened for Missing Persons, Bullet Boys, Great White, and many others. MT is a captivating performer, often compared to Beck, Steven Tyler, and Iggy Pop. His music moves listeners with an emotional force like timeless classics. Song subject matter is positive and all-ages appropriate.
Sounds Like: Tom Waits meets Aerosmith, with a dash of the delta-blues.
Past release: MT's "Promise" album, (Americana acoustic-rock), released Oct. 2008, received widespread radio play in the USA, Europe, Spain, Asia and Australia. Promise is available on CD Baby, Amazon, iTunes and most popular digital distributors.
