Matt Hopper and the Roman Candles Celebrate 'Grand Ole Hopry'

Live at Reef tonight with Vandella and Hungry Skinny

by

Matt Hopper is a man of many facets.

He has roots in Anchorage, Alaska; Madison, Wisc.; and Nashville, Tenn. He also calls Boise home. He seems like a laid-back, devil-may-care guy, but he is always working and always on the go, following a near-constant touring schedule that takes him around the country and around the globe. Hopper never shies away from experimenting with new sounds, delivering a pop showstopper in one track and a country-western crooner the next. He is also always writing and recording and, in what should come as no surprise to his fans, he and the Roman Candles have cut a brand new album.

Grand Ole Hopry (Hatcher Pass Records, 2015), sees Hopper and the Candles delivering divine songs filled with pedal steel and fiddles in the way only they can; and the only thing better than hearing them recorded is catching Matt Hopper and the Roman Candles live.
