The trio recently debuted their gospel to the lovely people of Hot Springs and released their self titled LP.FITRA - for years, Matt Johnson has been refining his songwriting craft. Now, as he enters his third year as a music composition student, he begins his most ambitious project to date. The band also includes Johnson's long time collaborator Craig Wynn. The two have played music together for nearly ten years, practically growing up playing in Little Rock clubs and touring since the age of 13. Together, with an ensemble of accomplished musicians, they bring their own brand of folk music that draws heavy influence from jazz and alternative innovations. Fitra manages to stay on the narrow path of having an eclectic sound without losing their edge.
