Finding Fela, Finding Myself 


The other night I saw "Finding Fela", a documentary by Alex Gibney on the life of the late Nigerian musician Fela Kuti.  It's a good movie.  New fans get a basic introduction to his music and his place in history; those more familiar with his genius get access to great archival performance and interview footage plus new interviews with family, former managers, and contemporaries.  The filmmakers also spoke with Bill T. Jones, director and choreographer of the musical Fela! that was such a success on… Read more

Ireland Trip 

This past week I travelled to Northern Ireland, splitting my time between Belfast (to attend a wedding) and St. John's Point in Donegal.  Both were lovely experiences.  Watching 2 friends get married, meeting all their friends and loving families, listening to all the speeches, singing with the band... The wedding was all kinds of fun.  Funny and sweet in all the right places, it was just about everything that one could hope for.  Then a drive (my first on the left hand side) across the country to Donegal… Read more

My Residency at The Flat Returns August 18th--FREE WITH RSVP 

I'm running around today getting ready for a trip to Ireland (for a friend's wedding and also just a small break). But before I split town I just wanted to let y'all know that my monthly residency at The Flat (308 Hooper St BK NY) is back!  The show this month is August 18th and I'm happy to welcome Bosco to the stage, a cool singer who just released a single (with Treasure Fingers) on Fool's Gold Records.  You can catch a bit of her wave here at hellobosco.com.  Our resident DJ Lindsey will be back… Read more

A Message from Mattie: Come See Me Perform at Rockwood 7/25! 

Hi Friends,

Hope that you've all been well.  It's been a busy month for me, I've been in rehearsals and the studio a fair bit, putting some finishing touches on my own recordings and producing another artist for the first time, a talented young singer by the name of Najah (who some of you might have seen open for me at my last performance at the Flat).  It was a great experience for all and I think we captured some good performances, so I look forward to finishing that up and sharing.  I'm also very excited… Read more
