Find Your Muse Open Mic welcomes back Matt Hectorne

When: Mon., May 14, 7 p.m. 2018
Price: $3
As a Memphis, Tennessee-born, Northwest Mississippi-raised singer-songwriter, Matt Hectorne has a love for classic American songwriting. Finding inspiration from the likes of Tom Petty, Neil Young, and Big Star with modern flourishes of indie rock and Americana that are sometimes compared to Jason Isbell, Ryan Adams, and Damien Jurado, Hectorne continues to bridge the old and the new. A natural songsmith, Hectorne’s smooth Mid-South drawl sails over songs that pay tribute to his heroes while still finding a refreshing place in today’s musical landscape. Since releasing his first EP in 2012, as well as 2013’s mini-LP Show Your Love, Hectorne has toured extensively across the country, garnering glowing show reviews and attracting new fans who are drawn to his intimate yet universal themes. With the release of his 2015 debut LP Days While Away, Matt Hectorne has found himself and his work in the most realized point of his young career. Songs of traveling, despondency, and learning to let go, these songs are at once highly melodic and cuttingly lyrical. Tracks that are deceptively easy-listening draw you in only to hit you over the head with stories and ruminations both profound and aware. Days While Away is out now on Hem & Haw Recordings
