The Suitcase Junket Live With Others

Between the full-length, solo Americana release Pile Driver in 2017 and a full-on rock treatise due out in early 2019, The Suitcase Junket -- multi-insrumentalist, artist, tinkerer, swamp yankee, and Vermont native Matt Lorenz-- released a surprise EP in 2018, entitled Live With Others. The EP was a simple idea: six tracks recorded in concert with friends and relations. It marked a year in which The Suitcase Junket's stage shows have swung back and forth between Lorenz's standard solo self-reliance and big nights of special guests and far-ranging collaboration.

"Lorenz, a master of multitasking, plays guitar while drumming with his feet and boasts the astonishing ability to sing two notes at once using a technique similar to the one made famous by Tuvan throat singers. When it comes right down to it, though, Lorenz relies as much on methods tried-and-true: bluesy guitar riffs, tenacious melodies and a singing voice both weathered and nimble. You don’t need to witness his physics-defying performance to be captivated; the music stands ..." -- WBUR (National Public Radio), Boston
