On Episode 51, we’re joined by singer-songwriter Matthew Szlachetka. He was in the Lubbock area for a handful of days a couple weeks back and joined me one evening at Blue Light for this podcast. He recently released an excellent new album, Heart of My Hometown, which we speak about extensively. He had performed the night before and was just phenomenal (which he’ll be back in Lubbock on May 02 at The Blue Light). In our conversation, we discuss moving out to Los Angeles–where he spent over a decade, his recent move to Nashville, growing up in Massachusetts, writing to capture both his and everyone’s small-town hometown, Tom Petty, and life out on the road.
