JPR Live Session: The Suitcase Junket

Oct 25, 2019

The Suitcase Junket is the musical project of Massachusetts singer/songwriter and musical raconteur Matt Lorenz. It's a hard to describe amalgam of rock, blues, folk and even world music influences created by a veritable one man band with a rather creative ensemble of instruments.

His latest album Mean Dog, Trampoline (produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos) gets its name from a line in the song "Scattered Notes From A First Time Home Buyer's Workshop," which were actual notes from an actual workshop Lorenz attended.

During the session, he explained the various pieces of his musical apparatus, how they came to exist, and how he discovered his talent for harmonic throat singing. 

JPR Live Sessions are recorded with Audix microphones. Located in Wilsonville, Oregon, Audix designs, engineers, and manufactures high performing, innovative products that contribute to the advancement of the professional audio industry.
