The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz's Internationally touring, slide guitar playing, throat-singing one-man-band. Lorenz, a Vermont born musician, visual artist and tinkerer, "aim[s] to write good songs and sing them honestly". He does that and more.

The Suitcase Junket's artistic vision is one of salvaged and repurposed objects, images and emotions. His innovative junk-percussion constructions, original album art featuring inanimate objects with wings, and the high craft of his songwriting all combine to create a unique and engaging entity with a force and style all its own. Lorenz's self-taught throat-singing adds a fascinating edge to the overall sound.

"I'm interested in the hidden voices that reside within things: the songs stuck inside instruments, the story behind the object, the mysterious weight of a word, the harmonic sequence that's in every note waiting to be broken as light through a prism.”

His EP Dying Star will be released on Signature Sounds on March 4, 2016.

"Not everyone can pull off the one-man-band gambit without lapsing into schtick, but Amherst's Matt Lorenz has it all down to an art[…]The songs are what you remember." -THE BOSTON GLOBE

"If croons could kill, this one-man band would be a bounty hunter. Armed with a unique, self-sufficient approach to raw instrumentation, The Suitcase Junket is an artisan of song, bending, forging and sharpening each piece into an emotional tool." -Performer Magazine.

"Remember the first day you heard The Suitcase Junket…his songwriting is extraordinary…This is one of the most exciting records I've heard in years." -Vin Scelsa of Idiot's Delight on WFUV and Sirius/XM
