— Matt Axton
LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Up-and-coming Americana performer Matt Axton continues to wow his fans and critics this year. Matt Axton just recorded live at the highly esteemed Paste Studio on the Road: WinterWonderGrass, adding to his successful release of the official music video for his critically acclaimed song, Blue Sky Rain, and Matt’s powerful performance at one of Los Angeles’ best live music and Country-Americana events/series, “The Grand Ole Echo”.
Paste Studio on the Road records artists in and around the Winterwondergrass Festival at Palisades in Olympic Valley, Lake Tahoe CA. For the Paste on the Road occasion, Matt performed his country-grass originals, Bad Moon and Fire Down Below, and gave a bluegrass twist to his new single and video release, Blue Sky Rain Matt covered his father Hoyt Axton’s Joy to the World creating his own backwoods version with guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and banjo.
Matt was particularly fond of this recording because it was filmed in the woods behind his childhood home near the Tahoe Cross Country Center in Lake Tahoe, California. Matt still walks his dogs (Beau and Bella) here with his mother, Donna Axton.
“I have found that music and nature are the best ways to connect with life truly, so a few friends hiking deep into the woods and sending their songs into the wind was magical, to say the least. I’m forever grateful to Paste for helping bring it to life,” states Axton.
The Paste session recording was part of Matt Axton’s Northern California April tour which included performances in Lake Tahoe, Reno, Murphy’s, Atascadero, Paso Robles, and Santa Barbara. The Paste performance was originally recorded on April 4, 2022, and officially posted on May 24, 2022.
