Watermelon Music - The Melon Ball
1970 Lake Blvd Suite 1, Davis, California 95616
The Melon Ball is pleased to be hosting an up-close and personal concert by Szlachetka. Hailed as «one of the ten new artists you need to know» by Rolling Stone Magazine, Szlachetka (pronounced SLA-HET-KA) draws your gaze back to a simpler time when music was less about stylized production and more about its experiential nature. His songwriting finds inspiration in the threads that connect us, weaving a tapestry of familiar moments that pay homage to the past while leaning into a future that is yet capable of such wonder.
Produced by Grammy winning producer David Bianco (Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, Lucinda Williams, et al.), Szlachetka’s sophomore album “Heart of My Hometown” is slated for release in the summer of 2017. The album’s ‘Americana’ aesthetic blends lavish guitar phrasing and roots-rock sensibilities with vivid storytelling that sounds both raw and polished in the same breath.
Based in Los Angeles, Matthew Szlachetka has been making music for over a decade, both as the frontman for acclaimed roots-rock band the Northstar Session, with which he released five albums, and as a solo artist. After leaving the Northstar Session in 2013, Szlachetka’s struck out on his own and released his 2014 solo debut album, Waits for a Storm to Find.
Tickets ($20.00) available at Watermelon Music
