Born to not just one, but two human parents, Matt Mackey slid into the world with a holler and a song. Every song he writes, every show he plays, he says brings him closer to what he calls "The Upside". The upsidse of what? He won't say. With songs that conjur Bob Dylan and Tom Petty's lovechild with Joe Cocker; this is music of, by and for the people.
