Matthew Zeltzer of the American West

Portland songwriter, Matthew Zeltzer (of The American West), returns to Al's Den after a month long tour of Europe with his indie-americana duo, "The American West." In spring of 2017, The American West released their debut album, "The Soot Will Bring Us Back Again," which Frank Gutch Jr. (No Depression), calls, "Words to the wise. A warning. Beautifully done." "The Soot..." is flecked with pedal steel and longing harmonies as the album drifts between finger-picked folk songs and raucous country-rockers, all while the focus remains on Zeltzer's ragged poetry.

Matthew Zeltzer has had the distinct privilege of sharing the stage with acts including The Milk Carton Kids, Chuck Ragan, Jim Lauderdale, The Brothers Comatose, Jaime Wyatt, and is former member of Grammy Award winning Fantastic Negrito.
