Live Music: Matt Cox @ Rustic Tap
May 9, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Matt Cox is hitting the road fresh off the release of his 6th album, “High Places” and heading to Rustic Tap on May 9, 2018.
“Whether you’re talking about his writing, his voice, or his playing, Matt Cox is powerfully authentic. No Nebraska artist navigates between country, folk, and blues as well as he does. From tongue-in-cheek protest to heart-on-the-sleeve narratives, the stories that fill High Places embody that blend perfectly. Cox has again crafted an album of vivid songs that are layered, relatable, and as engaging as anything to come out this year.” -Ryan Evans, Tree with Roots KZUM 89.3
In 2007, Shenandoah, Iowa, native Matt Cox self-released his debut album Folker’s Travels and established himself as a vibrant part of the emerging Omaha, Nebraska singer/songwriter scene. While local stages and small-town haunts allowed him to bring his foot-stomping country and blues to a steadily growing fanbase, Cox began to define his singular style by touring the majority of the western United States and eventually spreading his wings through music meccas such as Memphis, Nashville, New Orleans, and Austin, TX.
Since that time, the award-winning tunesmith has been busy recording; My Last Dollar (2009), Tracks In The Sound (2011), Nishnabotna (2014), The Cost Of Everything and the Value Of Nothing (2016), High Places (2018) and performing across the country both as a solo artist and with an ever-changing lineup of the area’s top talent. His road-worn vocals and signature harmonica style give the songs a refreshingly authentic and heartfelt sound and help share the storyteller’s unique, yet familiar perspective on the vast canvas of life.
