Jay Matthes / Bio

I began playing professionally in July 2011. Since then, my musical projects have earned opening spots for national acts such as Breaking Laces, Mike Dawes, Smashmouth, 10,000 Maniacs, Charlie Worsham, Natalie Stovall and the Drive, and more.

I've played many of the major venues in Wisconsin, including Summerfest, Milwaukee Indyfest, Country USA, The Rave, Miller Park, Cactus Club, Germanfest, Shank Hall, Miramar Theatre, plus multiple local festivals and events. My original music has been featured on 92.5 WBWI, 89.7 WUWM, and 102.1 WLUM, as well as TMJ4's Wisconsin Tonight and Channel 12 WISN. Press has included coverage in Breaking & Entering, Shepherd Express, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and OnMilwaukee.com.

Currently I play solo acoustic gigs across SE Wisconsin in support of my new album "A Drier Place".
