About Matthew Zeltzer

Matthew Zeltzer

Driven by his poignant lyrics and soul-wrenching voice, California songwriter, Matthew Zeltzer, blends influences as diverse as John Steinbeck, Neil Young, and Wilco to build a sound that harkens back to early American music, while facing modernity square in the face. Following the success of his 2011 EP, "Desert Tortoise," and a brief phone conversation with hulk Hogan (true story), Zeltzer is currently self-producing his first full length studio album with help from Drew Allsbrook (Ryan Adams, The Mars Volta). In between recording sessions, he spent most of 2014 touring the west coast, with highlights being a residency at McMenamin's Al's Den in Portland, Or, co-touring with LA songwriter Jaime Wyatt, opening for the McCoy Tyler Band on a west coast run, and opening for and playing with Frankie Boots and the County Line during their 2014 Megatour.
