Rich Mattson and the Northstars “In Flight” – Listen

Rich Mattson’s biography is just too full to encapsulate in a Track feature – the short story is he started playing in his first band at the age of 13 and forty years and multiple bands later one of his current projects is the “cosmic folk-rock” of Rich Mattson and the Northstars.  The long version of the bio’ can be found here –  and it’s interesting reading.  Along the way Rich Mattson has shared the stage with the likes of Wilco, Ryan Adams and Uncle Tupelo – so that’s some Americana credentials he’s holding.

In Flight‘ shows some ambivalence towards the whole aeroplane-long distance journey-flying thing, it’s the preview single for the upcoming album ‘Skylights.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
