Matt the Electrician

Matt the Electrician is Matthew Sever, a quirky, sincere folk/pop singer songwriter based in Austin, TX. He has self-released 11 studio albums, and 2 live CDs since 1998.

His most recent release, “The Ocean Knocked Me Down” came out on February 2nd, 2024.

For the new project, Matt returned to his “home studio” of sorts, The Aerie, in Austin, TX, (owned and operated by Mark Addison) where Matt had recorded 4 of his previous records, including 2009’s “Animal Boy”.  And like that project, Matt and Mark played nearly all the instruments on the new record.  There are some special guest musicians as well, including MtE regulars, Seela, Jon Greene, and Stephanie Macias.  Plus, first timers Carrie Rodriguez, Luke Jacobs and Oliver Steck.

To call this a pandemic record might be slightly misguided, even though most of the songs were in fact written during 2020 and 2021. But the vibe of the record is upbeat, and weird, and fun, and sometimes sad, but hopeful, and occasionally poignant, and silly, and hopeful, but ridiculous, and also hopeful. You might think that’s a lot of vibes, but there are 16 songs on the record, because we’ve all been through a lot, and so Matt figured that, this time,  everyone deserved a few more songs  and a few more vibes than usual.
