ALTERNATIVE SOUL ROCK AND ROLL
NEW ALBUM - GOOD LUCK
After years of touring in support of the 2015 debut 'Compadre', McNeal and longtime drummer Andre Black return with 'Good Luck', an LP recorded by Grammy award-winning Ted Young (Kurt Vile, The Rolling Stones). Backed by an all-star band, the album weaves in and out of genre atop the analog hiss of a 1971 tape machine. Matthew McNeal delivers inventive storytelling over a groove-laden soundtrack, sonically mirroring the dynamic landscapes seen while weaving across the country.
The new LP, Good Luck, was released on February 16, 2018, through McNeal's-own Matte Black Sound Company.
McNeal has releases three singles - Change (9/14), All For Nothing (10/26), and Michael (1/4) - which come ahead of a follow-up LP slated for release in Summer 2019.
