Matt Watts & The Calicos (Indiefolk/Americana)

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Mr.Fingers, Aug 3, 2012.

  1. Teaser for our upcoming album, made from DIY multitrack homerecordings (the album will sound the same, but recorded with proper gear). Features me on the pedalsteel, acoustic guitar, electric guitar (6 & 12 string), organ & piano (with a sporadic bassline and drum).

    Matt (°1987) is a singer who was born in Missoula (Montana), but he found a Belgian wife, and followed her to Antwerp, where he lives now. He played several years as a solo singersongwriter, but he wanted a real band, with a broader sound, but still true to what he was doing. Enter the Belgians: William Sanders (°1987, that's me) on guitars, bass and keys, and Guido op de Beeck (°1989) on bass and guitars. The three of them share a predilection for Americana made between 1965 & 1975 (The Band, Dylan, CSNY, Burrito Brothers,...), vintage folk (Seeger, Williams, Guthrie,...) and an aversion for Hi-Fi recordings, overproduced sounds and flawless songs. Everything is recorded using real instruments, in complete takes (so no copy pasting to patch up mistakes or duds).
