Into the Wilderness – Episode 3 Into the Wilderness is bringing you the very best in local and national talent. This month we have a star lineup that we hand picked. Join us as they light up the stage for a packed night of sound & vision. Featuring: Wheatley Mattews, One Man Banjo, Up is The Down Is The, Tyler Stafford & Limbo State About Wheatley Mattews: “Wheatley Matthews is from the midwest growing up in the city of Dayton, OH. After his first solo appearance in April of 2014, Wheatley released his debut self-titled album in September 2014. Back in the studio recording a large number of more original songs in 2015, he’s set to hit the road in March on his first national tour which will be followed by the release of his second album in late spring/early summer.” About One Man Banjo: A One Man Banjo show is energetic, incites movement, dancing, the clapping of hands, participation & a couple of sing alongs. Combines old time tunes in a unique rhythmic fashion which is (though at times dark) a vibrant experience. A.K.A. Sean Lee, 1mb has been in developement for over a decade and offers a wide variety of songs, from it’s roots in what we call the zig zag blues to banjo funk, swamp glam: progressing into gobbelin music ( www.hobogoblins.com ), and selections from Cheshire rock opera & what we call the Harlequin theory at work. S.Lee sings and plays the banjo in a sloppy rag time rhythm to the beat of a bass drum kick & a tamborine shoe. About Up is The Down Is The: Up Is The Down Is The is headed by multi-instrumentalist Andrew Martin, who pulls influential elements from rock and roll, latin grooves, R&B, and Jazz. He performs by looping percussion and multiple layers of sound together to create an energetic sound that is unique to him. The first self released EP entitled, “An arrow shot from a distance can always pierce the skin, but time, the ever-turning wheel, won’t turn back again”, was released in Feb. 14′.

"A delicate guitar pattern, a distant wordless choir, a deep, underlining organ, a string section that swoops in and out, and a hushed vocal melody seemingly sung an inch from the ear: “Stand back waiting on a dream that will never return. I sit back thinking of ideas that’ll never be heard.” On a String, Reno troubadour Tyler Stafford’s forthcoming album, is a work of remarkable intimacy."
