Matt York

Songs & Stories - The Highywaymen

Recently nominated for the 2022 Boston Music Award for "Best Country Artist", Matt York lives on the South Shore of MA and has traveled extensively through the years performing his songs also doing The Highwaymen Songs & Stories. 

in 2019, The Boston Globe  named Matt York's new album "Bruisable Heart" one of their top albums. Matt grew up in Foxboro, Massachusetts and began playing the clubs of Boston as a teenager. Since then, he's played on stages throughout the United States and Canada.

The Boston Herald says of Matt York’s album Boston, Texas that ”the singer-songwriter uses basic building blocks — Buddy Holly’s chords, Hank Williams’ swagger, Steve Earle’s boozy wisdom, Paul Westerberg’s straight-up-drunk wisdom — to construct an album of beauty, optimism and heartbreak”. Matt's new album explores a cross-section of everything from straight-up rock n roll to hints of country. His album has received radio airplay throughout the world.


His album "Between the Bars" was released in late 2017. Gatehouse Media's Peter Chianca wrote "Put Boston’s Matt York in the 'should be rich and famous department' -- his country rock with a jangly edge has instantaneous appeal, combining wry lyrics about barflies, ex-lovers and fading summers with infectious melodies and a rocker’s penchant for strumming his way through heartbreak".
