matt pond PA

While I write these words, my mind skates along the melody and lyrics of the Frank Sinatra/Sid Vicious song, My Way.

It is time to say goodbye to the oddly named Matt Pond PA. We’ll soon release a reprising holiday EP. And these shows in December will be the last we play under that honorific. (Or at least for a long, long, long, long, long, long time.)

Whatever happens next, I will continue to make music. We’re focusing the crux of our upcoming efforts here. Just without my name on all the baloney. It’s time for for a different brand of baloney.

Though I’m no smooth crooner nor Sex Pistol, I believe I gave it a good shot. I was lucky enough to record and perform with countless amazing musicians. And for some of the best fans/friends that any human being has ever been able to engage and encounter.

Honestly — I would not have been able to do any of this without the attention of the truest listeners in the universe.

Oh sure, I’m awkward and strange and broken in a few infinite ways. Yet despite the sporadic spirals, I’m still here and truly believe that music saved my life.

The only way to make anything that matters in this world is to do it together. Therefore, I want to collaborate in this lifetime, with other musicians, with other thoughts. And with you.

Yes, it was our way!
