Matthew B Mayes is the founder, principal songwriter, lead singer, Guitar and Guijo player for Jupiter Coyote. He has been playing music professionally for 30 years and has recorded 18 albums with Jupiter Coyote, The Raptor Trail, and his solo projects. He has played thousands of shows, toured everywhere, and sold a truck load of albums, streams and downloads. His song writing has been compared to Robert Hunter and Bob Dylan and he pulls from a wide range of experiences and millions of miles of travel. His songs cover a lot ground, stylistically and lyrically. Some are introspective and soul searching, some are wry and cynical. Many of his songs are autobiographical stories about his life, as seen through the eyes of a working musician who has spent thousands of hours on the road. He is a true musical treasure that serious music lovers outside the mundane pop culture should discover. Matt is a genre bending musician, a prolific writer, and an accomplished player. He even invented the Guijo, a half Stratacaster, half banjo instrument. He is best known in the southeastern, US, where Jupiter Coyote did and still does have a substantial following. Jupiter Coyote has been labeled “mountain rock,” which has been defined as a multi-colored blend of good ole southern boogie and country rock, with a nice dose of bluegrass infused, grooving funk. Think of a southern-fried Phish with better songwriting.
Matt has also released 4 albums with The Raptor Trail and JC members John Meyer and Gene Bass. A melodic prog band, a richly layered and sophisticated form of progressive rock music with very intelligent lyrical content. Imagine if the Allman Brothers and Rush were is a jam session, and Pink Floyd had a Guijo player. Do yourself a favor and listen to some of it.
Matthew is currently touring with Jupiter Coyote and performing
solo listening room shows and house shows all over the US.
