Songwriters @ Mission – Matthew Carefully, Sarah Blacker

Matthew Carefully

Matthew Carefully

“Matthew Carefully has a little bit of the magician in him. The singer-songwriter from Ballston Lake, N.Y., usually takes the stage cradling only a plugged-in mandolin, but anyone expecting something bluegrass or traditional is in for a shock: Effects and looping pedals at his feet let Carefully and his unassuming instrument create an entire experimental rock storm, from a thumping beatbox to a dangerously fuzzed-out electric guitar.”
- Ken Maiuri, Daily Hampshire Gazette

Sara Blacker

Sarah Blacker

“Sarah Blacker is one of the brighter artists to grab our attention recently. With a revelatory vocal that veers from a child’s skittish enthusiasm to the essence of emotion, she’s equally adept when it comes to expressive melodies. Such remarkable and consistent quality is unusual, Chalk her up as one of the more delightful discoveries of the past year, and let’s hope that indeed there are Blacker days ahead.”
- Lee Zimmerman, No Depression
