After a decade of fronting Delta Spirit, Matthew Logan Vasquez has decided to go it alone for the first time with his solo debut, ‘The Austin EP’, to be released November 3, and a full length LP, ‘Solicitor Returns’, to shortly follow in early 2016.
After years spent on the road touring and living in California and Brooklyn, Vasquez recently returned to his hometown to set down roots with his wife Marthe, and just celebrated the birth of their first child, Thor.
With Delta Spirit taking an extended break, Vasquez had some time to reflect on his life, inspiring him to begin work on a solo project. On ‘The Austin EP’, he returns to the straightforward style of rock he loves, playing nearly every instrument on the record, other than one track of drums. ex-Cold War Kids drummer Matt Aviero guests on Halfcolt.
