    Matt Patershuk is no stranger to lumberjack plaid and his delicate outlaw country tunes of the common man carry with them a wholesome, nostalgic vision of rural Alberta. Life experience as a small-town “desk jockey” for a bridge construction company and former forester, gave him ample fodder for his debut album "Outside the Lights of Town", produced in Vancouver by Steve Dawson. Matt crafts archetypal characters of classic country and western songs then adapts them to a Northern Canadian landscape. They are well-imagined tales: an aging small-town hero, an oilfield widow, a barroom brawl over love gone astray, the toll of living in a one-industry town and a farmer with his own take on the divine. Effortless playing of gentle blues or steel guitar with a subtle twang, Matt has a charm and vigor that sets him apart.

    I had the opportunity to see Matt perform in Dawson Creek. He is a fantastic song writer and musician. If you get the chance to see him DO NOT miss out. It will be an evening you won't soon forget.
