Event Details
Matt Mitchell began writing and performing his music when he was a small child. He was trained classically on piano starting at the age of four and added guitar as a teenager. Matt has taken his foundational skills in music and steadily developed his own sound; a flavor of folk influenced, narrative rich, Americana-roots music. His songs are honest, relatable and moving. You’ll find him playing piano, hammond organ or strumming his very unique 1930’s-era guitar that once belonged to his Great Grandfather. In 2005, after a year living abroad volunteering and traveling Europe, he joined the San Francisco based band Ten Mile Tide and spent the better part of the next six years touring the country as a keyboardist, harmonica player and singer. Matt has played music in every state but Florida. In 2011 he formed his own band; a six piece Americana/rock n’ roll group called ‘Folkinception’. The band was bestowed the honor of “Best Original Band” in 2018 and 2019 in the Pacific NW Inlander’s ‘Best Of’ reader poll. In 2019 they changed their name to ‘Trego’. The band has recorded two, full length albums and is set to release a third in the fall of 2021. In January of 2020 Matt moved into an imported Japanese bus and spent the following 18 months on the road with his wife and two dogs. His newest collection of songs were written amidst his experiences traveling during the tumult and uncertainty of the past few years.
Smith and Tegio is the musical project of long time friends and songwriting partners, Austin Smith and Mark Tegio. Austin and Mark met through a mutual friend in their late teens in San Diego, CA. Their friend owned a skate shop where they would skateboard out back during the day and play music and share songs at night. These years were filled with musical exploration for the two. By introducing each other to singer-songwriters such as Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley and Tom Waits, among many others, they laid the groundwork for what was to come. And although these years were formative, it wasn’t until years later that the two truly started to mesh musically and find their own voices as guitar players and lyricists.
