MATTHEW MEI - Having traveled the world as the son of a preacher man, Matt's initial introduction to the world of music was his dads classical, old blues and folk records, but it was his struggles in life and his soulful growth that fueled his desire to write emotional and heartfelt music. Be sure to join Matt tonight to hear songs from his newest CD release, "Contribution to Sound", a solid rock/folk excursion with bluesy undertones, hip hop beats and a most welcome retreat from the current atmosphere of commercial and trite ready-made music. http://www.matthewmei.com

The mind just smiles and nods... armed with an array of strings, Madison's Panic combine acoustic rock with intense emotion and raw musical energy. Their versatile sound resonates with melody, complexity and heart through an intensely unique mixture of punk, pop and classical composition creating fresh new classics at every turn. http://myspace.com/madisonspanic
