Matt Lorenz, AKA The Suitcase Junket. Many sounds come from this one-man band. Sounds from actual suitcases, from guitars found in the trash to any number of odds and ends Matt procures, invents, and salvages. He is an inventive and talented guy.
I took a trip out to western MA to chat with Matt in his recently almost finished studio to talk about, well, a whole bunch of things - his latest album The End is New, his upcoming show at the Sinclair in Cambridge MA on August 6th, his life before, during, and after COVID, and the difference between Doom Folk and Swamp Yankee Music, if there is one.
I even had my friend Eric Lineback ask a few questions that were more intelligent than mine.
Anyways, The End is New, produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, is Matt’s sixth full-length album as The Suitcase Junket and his first for Renew Records/BMG.
