& The High Watts

Matt Derda & The High Watts, a Folk Rock group from the Chicago area, combines storytelling with resonant melodies. Blending Rock N Roll riffs with Eastern Kentucky roots, they've created a unique sound that captures the essence of Johnny Cash's Nashville and the grit of rock acts like The Replacements.
