Matt Rouch

 

“Matt Rouch & The Noise Upstairs, winners of the Vertex Musical Championships’ “Best in Class for Strings” award, bring their unique style of country music to Colorado. Colorado residents can get better acquainted with Matt Rouch in AXS’ exclusive interview with the band.”

Based out of Denver, CO, Matt Rouch & The Noise Upstairs are making waves in the Colorado music scene. Rouch, a self-proclaimed southpaw whiskey-loving Virginian, self-released his first full-length solo album, “The Beautiful and the Damned” in March 2016 and now his 4-piece alt-country folk group is one of Denver’s fastest up and coming bands, with mentions in Music Connection Magazine, Denver Post, Marquee Magazine, Scene Magazine, and Axs.

 

“We all came together because we love bands like the Avett Brothers, Elephant Revival, The Decemberists, etc. so it made sense for most of us, we do have one Phish-head who loves him some jam bands, but he’s also a classically-trained violinist so it works out. When I first came to Denver I was blown away by the talent here, there are so many amazing musicians, but what really drew me were the songwriters, there’s a whole underground scene of phenomenal songwriters that need to be brought to light, this town isn’t like a Nashville where songwriters are really appreciated and a few of us intend on changing that. The band just wants to make music for people who appreciate songwriting, melody, structure, etc. with a little twang too it, not too much, just enough, I’ve been called Country-Light, might need to trademark that.”

 

“With a smooth delivery, Colorado folk-country band, Matt Rouch & The Noise Upstairs is a perfect blend of James Taylor and Fleet Foxes”
