Matthew Logan Vasquez has been creating non-stop in 2018 with the release and touring of his Murder Ballads EP and producing and arranging and touring the Glorietta album (featuring a group of musical buddies: David Ramirez, Noah Gundersen, Kelsey Wilson, Nathaniel Rateliff and more) Included in this creative outpouring came his 3rd solo album, Light'n Up that will be released on February 22nd via Dine Alone/Orchard.
MLV said of the music, "I recorded at my home in Wimberley Texas this past January, before I moved to live in Oslo. There’s a lot in there about family joy, and pain, and fear of the unknown. We moved because my Norwegian father in- law was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. It’s been a crazy year, but you do what you have to do for the ones you love. I guess that’s the moral of the next LP".
