Matt the Electrician & John Elliott at KUTX 5.8.13

Posted by on May 7, 2013

Matt Sever used to work long hours as an electrician, and then without showering or changing clothes or anything, he’d head to bars and clubs and play some music. He’d apologize for his appearance, explain that he was an electrician, and then continue to play his music. And so he came to be known as Matt the Electrician. Eventually, he quit his job as an electrician to focus solely on songwriting and performing, adopting “Matt the Electrician” as his stage name, to keep in touch with his roots per se.

On Thursday, Matt the Electrician has a show at Strange Brew with fellow singer songwriter John Elliott. Here they are in Studio 1a playing in KUTX Studio 1A. Don’t miss it!
