Canadian born Matt Paxton began performing in 2006 and was quickly spotted by local producers Michael Keire and Glen Marshall, known for their work with Feist and Apostle of Hustle, and invited to record what would become 2009’s “Back Home in the Village”. Paxton has spent some hearty time on the road touring and playing with the likes of Evan Dando, Jason Collett (Broken Social Scene), Blackie and the Rodeo Kings and Chad VanGaalen.
“He has a good descriptive sense, and anyone with any experience with gritty, working-class life will relate to everything he’s saying. Paxton’s produced a solid starting point from which to make his mark.” – Exclaim! Magazine
