Preorder the new record coming October 9th, 2020

Hello, music lovers.

Welcome to my website! Thank you for stopping by.

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be having a virtual CD release on October 9th, via my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/matt.giles.10. A live show release will have to wait until music venues in Austin safely reopen. You can pre-order the CD right now, right here. If you order between now and October 9th, you name will go in that hat for a prize drawing the night of the release. So far, the giveaways are 2 quarts of raw honey from my beehive, but more prizes will be added in the next few weeks!

I’m proud of how this record turned out. I think it sounds great and that these songs have been fully realized.  Here are a few quotes from some groovy people who’ve had a listen:

“This record though is like a songbook of American music from Memphis and anywhere south and east from that point. There are equal parts Toussaint and Steve Cropper and Eddie Hinson, interwoven seamlessly.”     -Jon Dee Graham

“Matt creates vignettes and stories with sing-a-long simplicity and groove for miles.  I can’t help but smile when listening to Year Of The Dog these songs that I’ve had the pleasure to hear live so artfully embellished but never heavy-handed.”                                                                                            -Seela

“Sweet Matty G brings all the slinky, greasy, grooving, sweaty rock club mojo. Year of the Dog has more vibe, character, and old-school cool than the Jungle Room at Graceland.”                                                                                 -Stephen Belans

“I’ve been dying to hear Matt’s record since we got to play an amazing song he’d written for it at Gospel Brunch a few months ago. Matt has always been the complete guitar player and a tremendous gentleman, and now it seems he’s also a world-class songwriter and recording artist. Right on!”                                                                                                                          -Rich Brotherton
