Bio

Blue Matches

Blue Matches is a female-led rock band out of Nashville, TN, with an emphasis on melodic elements. They seamlessly combine the energy and catchiness of early 2000s Pop-Punk, 90s Alternative and modern Indie Rock with the maturity and complexity of veteran songwriters.  Consisting of Michelle Marston on Vocals, Steven Edwards on Guitar/Vocals, Stephen Smith on Bass/Vocals and Phillip Brown on Drums, the band has started to make a name for itself in the Nashville and surrounding areas. They have received regular play on 102.9's the local buzz, Gashouse Radio, Spotify, Pandora and tons of online and indie radio stations, have been featured on 2015's season of "The Real World: Skeletons," E!'s "Stewarts and Hamiltions" and nominated for numerous local Nashville awards. The band is setting itself up to be a real contender in the indie market.

Their first album, with the help of a successful Kickstarter, was released on December 10th 2013. "Starting Over," tells the story of growth after a failed relationship and continuous self-abuse. The songwriting has since grown steadily and is showcased on 2015's EP, "Fear the Truth" which shows the band venture into an even more expansive territory.

"It’s a well-produced, angry and atmospheric pop record that is rife with vows not to get fooled again..." - Murfreesboro Pulse
