Matt Lorenz is a Vermont born musician, visual artist and tinkerer currently based in Massachusetts. "I aim to write good songs and sing them honestly" says Lorenz. He does that and more. The Suitcase Junket's artistic vision is one of salvaged and repurposed objects, images and emotions.
His innovative junk-percussion constructions, original album art featuring inanimate objects with wings, and the high craft of his songwriting all combine to create a unique and engaging entity with a force and style all its own.
Lorenz's self-taught throat-singing adds a fascinating edge to the overall sound. "I'm interested in the hidden voices that reside within things: the songs stuck inside instruments, the story behind the object, the mysterious weight of a word, the harmonic sequence that's in every note waiting to be broken as light through a prism."
