Matt Hopper's voice can have the twang of Tom Petty and the sleepiness of The Decemberists' Colin Meloy. As BW has noted in the past, he's a man of many sides: He has roots in Alaska, Wisconsin and Tennessee, but calls Boise home. He plays so much in the City of Trees, it's hard to imagine he ever leaves, but leave he does with his backing band The Roman Candles. Out in the world, Matt Hopper & The Roman Candles is a hot act with mastery of the sounds of rock, Americana, country and indie. Underpinning it all is a subtle pop sensibility. On June 12, Hopper et al will hit the Alive After Five stage, with opener (and fellow Boiseans) Audio Moonshine. Brush up on the band's oeuvre with its latest album, Grand Ole Hopry (2015) and its latest EP, "All the Love" (2019).
