High & Lonesome and Oporto present... Matthew Logan Vasquez + special guests Oporto, Leeds Tuesday 6th February £7 adv. from Crash Records, Jumbo Records & online: Matthew Logan Vasquez is a face - and a voice - you might well recognise. The former frontman of Delta Spirit, he's a songwriter of unusual depth, of remarkable poetry. Turning solo, Matthew has been working on an album of new material, inspired by a life of ups and downs. Musing on this recently, the singer said: "My point is that life is a struggle but how can you have optimism and hope if you don’t have something negative? Context is what makes it meaningful." Cut Headed West off of his Does What He Wants album exemplifies this attitude - gilded Americana, it gleams with the promise of mythic California, twinkling in the distance: He explains: "If you live in California it's easy to forget what an odd and wonderful place it is. After moving to New York and then Austin I felt I could really appreciate the facets that I both love and hate."
