The Hasslers are a five piece Folk-Rock/ Americana group from Missoula, Montana, currently based out of Seattle, WA. Since their formation in 2012, they've become known in the Northwest for their high-energy, air-tight performances, intricate instrumental arrangements, and catchy, yet powerful lyrics and vocal melodies. Built around Matt Hassler's songwriting, the group has become a staple of their genre, providing support for acts like Robert Earl Keen, Blitzen Trapper, the Cave Singers, the Heartless Bastards, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, and many more.Horn players, weeping pedal steel, electrifying guitar solos and 3 part vocal harmonies abound. Genuine, hard-hittin', MT folk-rock, erudite pool-hall rock, doesn't matter what you call it, it's fun to watch and it's good to listen to. Northwest Music Scene of Seattle, WA writes:"If you hold strong, personal lyrics in high regard, but also like the sound of muscular folk and alt-country, The Hasslers aren’t to be skipped out on. We recommend picking up a copy of State Center and keeping it in steady rotation for a long, long time." Independent Clauses of Raleigh, North Carolina writes:"Even though the songwriting and instrumentals are brilliant, Matt Hassler’s vocal performances are even more stellar. He has the sort of lithe, evocative voice that can sell any line, whether it’s a wisecrack, a confession, or an observation."
