January 30, 2018: Tonight, rock guitarist, singer and songwriter Matt Walsh played a concert on SCENES Live Sessions.
Last year on March 8, Matt Walsh’s beloved friend and drummer Austin Hicks died. Hicks was only 22. Walsh, the mentoring artist who was 39 at the time, still loves Hicks like a brother and a son, and said he can never again play the music they made as their two-man band The Low Counts.
Over the course of four years, The Low Counts toured, they made three records of “blue collar rock-n-roll” and gathered a faithful following. As Walsh grieved, music came gushing out of him and here on SCENES Live Sessions he sings selections from his solo album “Life After Rock-n-Roll.”
