Who Is Matt Kollock?
A balding 40-something weirdo decides to take one more shot at a middle-class music career.
Geez. These musician bios, right? I was going to do the thing where I pretend to be some sort of humorless, somber, disembodied voice that secretes facts about obscure musical artists from some pristine hipster record store on high. I figured you would see through that. So I'm not going to pretend.
This is me, Matt Kollock, writing this. Hey! How are you? I see you like music. That's great! I like music, too. So much that I decided, in my goddamn mid-40s, that I ought to attempt a music career. I write and record songs in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Land of Enchantment (or Entrapment). The Breaking Badlands. That place. I am in there, but not of there.
I used to play the blues in a semi-professional capacity. I used to do the punk-rock thing. I used to think I was no good. Then I tore my life down and rebuilt it with psychedelic construction materials. I wrote some songs. I started performing. I gained confidence. I made some deals with some entities; benevolent ones. I started recording my songs.
My music is cool. It's rhythmic. It's energetic. It's spiritual and psychedelic and also irreverent. It's meant to make you wonder if I am being serious or not. It's like if Ween got really into Ram Dass. So that's pretty cool.
I've got a blog here if you wanna check that out. People seem to like my writing. The podcast is represented in there, too. Yeah, I also have a podcast. It can be found where podcasts are found.
My Patreon page is a great place to hang out if you don't feel like hanging out here. Over there the deal is you give me a little bit of money every month and then I give you some free, exclusive content. Cool, right?
That's all I got. Thanks for being here, my friend. You're the best. I love you.
