Matt Hires came back to Boston last Friday on his headlining tour, State Lines Tour Part 2. With his band, Matt played many songs off his debut CD, as well as his new EP, “A to B”. They also did a fun cover of The Beatles’ song “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away”.
Opening for Matt was the Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors. The husband-wife duo from Nashville put on an engaging set that was somewhat similar to The Swell Season. Holcomb’s voice reminded me somewhat of a mix between Damien Rice and Howie Day. They’ve even had one of their songs featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and “Oprah”. Look out for these up and comers.
