Description: About Matthew Smith (formerly Outrageous Cherry, THTX, The Volebeats): "The Matthew Smith Group is the new performing unit of the former Outrageous Cherry songwriter, lead singer, and guitarist. His previous band's combination of psychedelia, folk-rock, art rock, and bubblegum music spans more than 12 albums over nearly three decades. Outrageous Cherry attracted an international cult following and was a fixture in Detroit's underground art and music culture, but the band ended in 2017 with the passing of lead guitarist Larry Ray. The new group will be playing songs from Matthew's upcoming solo album, as well as a few songs from the Outrageous Cherry back catalog. As a solo artist, Matthew's work inhabits a sonic and lyrical territory informed by the many diverse projects he's produced and played with over the years. His work with Rodriguez, Crime and the City Solution, Nathaniel Mayer, Andre Williams, The Go, as well as musical encounters with artists like Kevin Ayers and Damo Suzuki, have all been an inspiration to his latest batch of songs."
